Mountain Biking Tapeworm (Towers Of Power)

****   Add a review
#39 of 1,210 mountain bike trails in Washington
#2,118 in the world

Skill builder ride, nice quick after-work destination. It takes 1-2 hours to ride everything. This is a small system of trails that are tightly wound to make the most of a power utility company lot. There are now six trails: Crop Circles (only 1/2 can be ridden), The Tapeworm, Parasite, Mr. DNA, The Silkworm and BermSled. The CycoActive map is out of date and currently only lists a few of the trails, but it will get you started in the right direction. This is a trashy section of young deciduous trees, don't expect nice forest (this area is great night riding, just be cautious of low hanging branches).
•Bermsled: Flowy downhill with berms and jumps
•Mr. DNA: Technical with roots and rocks
•Parasite: Technical with sharp turns, roots, and log piles, many short steep ups and downs
•Tapeworm: Technical with structures, roots, drops, short uphills and log piles.
•Cropcircles: Maze-Like ride
•Silkworm: Flowy XC with optional drops, structures, and berms
•Main Path: Fire road/singletrack, easy, not hard features

Rider questions

Q: I went there this last weekend, do you return on the power line access road or is there trail etiquette that you just pull over on the return up hill?

Q: Where do you park
A: Park at Phillip Arnold Park, go around the gate and up the paved road.
