Evo Reviews The 2023 Santa Cruz Hightower Mountain Bike

Evo’s Danielle Vilaplana recently rode the V3 Santa Cruz Hightower for three days in Oakridge, Oregon, with an impeccable team from Santa Cruz and Trans Cascadia Excursions. 

Mount Saint Helens in Washington, USA.

Experience the Mount Saint Helens blast zone and the amazing trails that inhabit the area with our partners at Trans-Cascadia. On this one day trip, you’ll relive a day of the 2018 Trans-Cascadia mountain bike race, and ride through the Mt. St. Helens Backcountry. Located in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest in Southwest Washington, this ride takes place in one of the most remote regions in the Washington Cascade Mountain Range. Lucky for you, Trans-Cascadia has already navigated this remote area extensively and has timed this trip in order to maximize the limited access granted to bikers. On this guided Mount Saint Helens mountain bike trip, expect huge views of Mt. Saint Helens, Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainier, and some intensely demanding and rewarding singletrack!

The Mt. St. Helens Backcountry, located in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest in Southwest Washington, is one of the most remote regions in the Washington Cascade Mountain Range. You’ll be riding within the 1980 Mt. St. Helens Blast zone, where you’ll still find remnants of the historic blast that blew 1,300’ off the top and absolutely desecrated the surrounding environment for decades. When riding the newly maintained mountain bike trails near Mount Saint Helens, you’ll be reminded of the old as you pass by Spirit Lake, which still holds a massive amount of logs and debris from the eruption.

In the summer of 2018 two of evo’s partners, Trans-Cascadia and Santa Cruz Bicycles started the massive project of reclaiming the trails around Saint Helens. Since then, volunteer laborers have uncovered 52 miles of newly logged and brushed out backcountry singletrack. These partners still come up at least once a year to attend a 4-day work party to help the cause and throw a shovel in the dirt.
