Squilchuck State Park

Wenatchee, WA

Chainsmoker!
Chainsmoker!

Epic day of racing at the Chuck!  Rain, snow, sleet, oh and then sun!  The trails went from fast and tacky to slime in short order, but never turned to deep mud.  Which speaks volumes to the quality of construction.  Thanks to Central Evergreen for the rad trails and Team Ridge for the BBQ, so much goodness!

 

Squilchuck State Park is where it’s at!  The Chainsmoker is coming at you, and won’t disappoint!  The Central chapter of Evergreen has been hard at work building trail and we have put together a lung searing xc ripper to show it off!

Course:  The course is a mix of new and old.  You will begin with an abbreviated 3.5 mile start loop that will run up through the campground, continuing out the old double track with plenty of room for passing and getting things sorted before you get to the good stuff.  From there you will begin the full lap which is 5.2 miles with 800′ of climbing.  You’ll see a mix of double track, open flowy singletrack, and tight tech singletrack.  FUN course!
