    ... and if we just ... Duthie Kudos

    Rode Duthie for the first time since November. Aside from the massive effort for the storm cleanup, there were too many improvements/additions to count. The StepItUp extension is so good we had to loop it again. Looking forward to Dueces and the Beginner DH being finished and trying Gravy Train out.

    Thanks for all the great work.

    As long as people use the THREE walk-up/Access routes up GT, it will be my fave trail for a long while. I can't believe people are still walking up the trail when there are 2 walk-up entry points, and a connector trail if you want to ride back up.

    Please pass the info along to anyone who forgets to look to the side of the trail before pushing their bike up blind corners on a FR trail.

    Thanks,

    And great work finally getting it done. And so many other improvements, Spring/summer is gonna be SWEEEET!

    The new map is posted on the Evergreen wiki page for Duthie. From that map, it looks to be a FR trail going from about the start of Ryans but heading to the NE instead and meets up with StepItUp. I am looking forward to going out and checking out some of the new trails, if they are open.

    Go behind the take off ramp for Ryan's line like you were heading to the beginning of BigTree and you will see a trail path heading off to the left. At the next intersection stay to the left and you will be at the start of GT.

    Glad you guys like it. With the help of a ton of folks we just got it open. 19 jumps in a row that are all midsized and fun. There is still some tweaking and grooming but it's running pretty well already. Enjoy!

    We're hoping to have the upper half of Deuces opened up soon, and opened up for good. (Upper half is from start to just a little ways past rock garden). After that we drop back down to the bottom where we have 400 more feet of dual slalom track to build.
    That might not seem like a big number, but it will be the equivalent of building a pump track that runs for 800 ft. So we really sure could use some help, for Deuces, and really for all projects at Duthie. We're all working to wrap up one park, and all the trails are so great, helping one trail helps em all in the grand scheme of things.
