A study in flow, Tapeworm can show riders how to get lost...in a good way.
The endless hairpin curves require some attention, and soon everything else drops away as riders work first gear and their brakes to avoid slow motion crashes.
First came Mr DNA, then the eponymous Tapeworm in 1997, followed by Crop Circles in 1998, then finally the New Parasite.
Like the McKenzie River Trail, extensive use has worn this carefully laid out trail system, but it's still a lot of fun.
Tapeworm is not a destination trail, but it is a must-ride (at least once) for any Northwest rider.
The 3.5 turn, double-spiral Crop Circles can be seen while approaching the Renton airport.
New Parasite has many log features, adding to the stunts built on The Tapeworm.
The trail system was designed to be one-way.
Riding the other way will damage the trail, and the other riders may damage you as well, so it's not recommended.
Be sure to not leave valuables in your car while riding.
