Seattle area fall mountain bike trails

Where are the best fall mountain biking places? My son and I have done Duthie, Saint Eds/Big Finn Hill, and Paradise Valley.


We're considering Soaring Eagle (we used to call it Beaver Lake), Tapeworm (we used to call it Renton Towers of Power) or Black Diamond Open Space for this weekends ride (11/10/18).


I'm curious if all of these are 1) still open and 2) good for the wet fall conditions 3) if there are better trail recommendations. We are looking for a combo of single track and flow.

Take a look at the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance trail guide and trailforks for up to date information. The Beav, Tapeworm and Black Diamond are all still open and are fine for riding in wet conditions.

This forum tends to be roadie-oriented. If you post your question in the Washington Forum on mtbr.com you'll get a better response.

Kendall Peak Lakes trail (Snoqualmie) allows bikes, and isn't snowed out yet.

SF, according to the Forest Service, no bikes allowed on this trail. Reading the hike reports on the WTA site, I don't think I would ride it even they were

Hmm. Sorry to misinform.

I wonder if that's changed recently or if I've just always been wrong about that one?
