The Colonnade Mountain Bike Park is an intense set of trails and skills courses, freeride features, a pump track, and even an area for beginning riders looking to get their feet wet—all built by volunteers under Interstate 5 in Seattle, Washington. This park is a feat of craftsmanship and ingenuity built from donated materials that can be ridden year-round, despite Seattle’s notoriously wet weather.

“The best way to displace negative use is with positive use.”—Justin Vander Pol, Board Member, Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance.
