Ebiking in Capitol Forest
Per current Department of Natural Resources policy, ebikes are not allowed on non-motorized trails in Capitol Forest. DNR does not draw a distinction between pedal-assist or throttle assist. So, if it has a motor, it cannot be on a non-motorized trail--even if the motor is off or otherwise disengaged. Luckily for ebikers, Capitol Forest is blessed with mile after mile of rad moto trails, many of which are so un-used by quad traffic that they are singletrack. These multi-use moto trails are all open to ebikes and make Capitol Forest one of the best places to ride ebikes in Washington.
