Thanks to Evergreen!
Hands down my favorite adrenaline line at Duthie. I stay away from the freeride lines because I don’t like gaps. This downhill trail gets my heart racing every time. It’s intimidating at first from a XC rider’s perspective but once you know the features it’s a blast. Don’t be intimidated by the first feature, which is a drop-in table. There is a walk-around at the table, but if you can’t do this then you probably shouldn’t be on this line.
The main take-away feature of this trail is the flowtron, which is more or less like being on a roller-coaster. It’s fast, it’s smooth and a well thought-out up and then down and up and down with optional drops and unique features on the descents. Near the end is an optional drop over a downed tree that’s a few feet wide. It’s easily clearable without jumping as it’s at a downhill angle. Just watch your speed here. If you hit it too fast you’ll end up landing on the flat which will not end well for you, I promise.
At the end, either take a right to take Step It Up back up to the beginning of Ryan’s Line and/or center lot or take a left at the Duthie entrance/exit trail to your next destination.
Anyone know of any shuttle’rs in the area. I am a relocate with no-one to ride with. I’m an old guy (46) with a full downhill rig. Don’t like being in the air a lot but love bombing rocky, rooty tech sections etc. I hear exit #38 is a good time. Let me know!!
Steve, check out capitol hill near olympia. They have a shuttle service there. For more details, stop at BikeTech of Olympia and they will give you the info.
