TKE was once my favorite local riding spot, but the logging and the use-pass turned me away for a few seasons. I decided it was time for me to dediscover TKE, so joined a few friends for an evening spin on some of the old standards and a few new-to-me soon-to-be standards. The views from the top of FT3K were spectacular, especially with alpenglow on Si. The trail itself is in good condition (not great); a bit loose in places and not as "feeling-of-fast" as it was before the logging. There were some face-high briars poking out; should have brought the glasses. Once ducked out of the clear cut and into the woods, it was DARK quick. The remainder of the ride was lights-mandatory. No mud or puddles anywhere.
