New Cheasty Mountain Bike Trails Celebration

Join us October 1!

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR), Friends of Cheasty Greenspace at Mountain View, Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, and the Seattle Parks Foundation invite the community to celebrate phase one of the new Cheasty Mountain Bike and Pedestrian Trails. The celebratory event will be held on October 1, 2022, officially “Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day,” from 10 a.m. to noon, with a ribbon cutting at 10:30 a.m. Please join us at 4400 Cheasty Blvd. S 98108.

This community-initiated project created Seattle’s first forested mountain biking trails. Led by the Friends of Cheasty Greenspace at Mountain View and built under the guidance of Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, the trails offer new opportunities for families and neighbors to access nature through our urban park greenspaces. 

The event is an opportunity for the community to come tour the south site trails and learn about the future development of the north trails. BikeWorks will be onsite providing bike repair services for free or on a sliding scale.

This three-year pilot project has been split into two phases, the south and north loops. SPR will be monitoring the south loop trail usage while constructing the north loop. SPR is collecting data on the Cheasty Pedestrian and Mountain Bike Trail to better understand trail usage and people’s experience using the trails.
