Mountain Biking Hansen Ridge

Hansen Ridge is the first segment in the new South Fork Snoqualmie riding area. Evergreen has been working on this project for 15 years, and as of September, 2009, the first 4 mile section of trail is ridable! Evergreen, in partnership with the US Forest Service and Mountains to Sound Greenway, secured grants to remove the first series of roads from the system and convert some of them into singletrack. Additional sections of trail will be converted as funds become available, eventually resulting in a 30 mile trail system.

Hansen Ridge trail is just over 4 miles each way. The climb is nice up the trail, and most will choose to do this ride as an 8 mile out-and-back, resulting in a total accumulated climb of about 1300 ft. The trail flows nice, and is a bit loose in places. The character of the trail will improve as Evergreen does trail finishing and maintenance. The trail is a comprised of two converted roads that connect with a trail about half way. The converted road/trails were made to simulate a trail out of a straight section of road and wind around from left to right with some small rollers and sections of rock and trees. The views from along the trail are spectacular, particularly on the upper segment.
The trail head is one of the most popular target shooting "pits" in the region. You will hear a lot of gunfire at the trail head.

Getting there
Directions and Description are from evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance's web site, and are accurate. From Seattle, take I-90 east to Exit 47, the Asahel Curtis exit. Turn right at the end of the offramp, and go a couple hundred feet to the stop sign. Turn right onto Tinkham Rd (dirt, but good), and go 1.2 miles. Take your first left onto FS road 5510, go 3.8 miles, always staying on the main road. When you come to the big shooting pit, you are at the trail head. The trail begins just on the other side of the gate on your right.
