The first dipping berm on wishbone filled with rain.

Had a fun, muddy, morning checking out the Snohomish River flood level (22.5 feet @ Snohomish) after going up to the towers. Windfall was cleared off the trails but a large rotten tree is over the bottom of the Upper Springboard flow. The first deep-dipping left turn berm on Wishbone has filled w...

A nice visit with the family residing in the South end.

A new perspective

Wanted to get a good baseline performance run on my gravel bike, over multiple terrain styles, before I order and install my Fox 32AX fork to mitigate the handlebar shock of the rooty, or rough, ter...

Reporter 'Bryan' and I toured Lord Hill this morning to enjoy the park in its early Summer state.  There is a tree over Liquid Bread near the bottom after a blind corner and one also over the River trail still, halfway down to the river. The river has no beachfront still so the snow must be...

This is the first jump set on the Lower Wishbone extension trail.

Got to the trailhead around 6:30 this morning and went directly to the Springboards and then up to do Goldeneye, Flowdeneye and Wishbone. Gnomes have done amazing work on Wishbone adding several great jumps and added an extension trail, just to the North, with more jumps. That trail goes right, a...

End of the River Trail. River peaked 4' higher!

River almost its highest

Snohomish side access was closed so you had to get to the park from the Monroe side. Trails were well drained except for a couple spots, but the soil was so soaked, trees were falling in many spots. River Trail has a big tree across it  for the big saws and I cleared a tower climbing trail o...

I went up north to try the Blanchard Forest again but the forest road, and probably parking lots, still had too much snow. The trails probably too. Came back to Everett/Snohomish and did Lord Hill. The snowfall has broke off a ton of limbs on the trails and toppled a few weak trees. Chainsaw need...

First hour of snow in 2020!

Was able to squeeze in a run up to the towers and then came down the Springboards,  and finally over to do Goldeneye, and Wishbone. There were a few puddles, but much better drainage is happening on the trails. There is 4" of snow there by now at the time of this report. GPS Track and pictur...

Great Conditions

09 | 29 | '18

First time riding here, it was a blast.  The trails are in great condition for fast riding.  There are some areas with mud puddles, but nothing that stops you in your tracks.  Not very crowded, some pedestrians, a few other bikers and a horse, not bad for a beautiful Saturday in th...

Never know what will ride with you!

Had a great ride until the end. I went up to the towers, down the Springboards, had my best run down Meetcutter, and then all the way down to the river. There was about 30 feet of beach with the low water level and I even grabbed a salmon. But on the climb out, a stick got into my rear wheel! It...

Bambi giving me directions to the Tower climbing trail.

As I reported last time, the foliage is down due to the February snow and trailwork has drained a lot of puddling. Hero dirt everywhere else, and the best visibility the park has ever had, have made the trails faster then I have seen in years. Goldeneye and its flowy offshoot were in excellent sh...

Got a quick ride in this afternoon and was really amazed that the initial climb to the main road was still coated in an inch or two of packed, warm, snow. Had to hike 50 feet but traction where it was well melted was fine. The record snow has flattened almost every fern, nettle and silal so trail...

Went up to the towers and then down the Springboards. Then I did some clearing of Meetcutter and finding a freshly fallen tree half way down (chainsaw folks see GPS/Picture). Then I went all the way down to the river and rode a ways down the riverbed since the river is so low from the dry season...

Spent an evening riding to the towers, and then doing the Springboards, Meetcutter, Goldeneye, Wishbone, Redline, the summit, and then returned along the pond trails. The new trail contours on Goldeneye and a repair of its long, sweeping, left turn were great additions to the ride. The skies were...

Went back with my new Fiskars 13" billhook to clear out the overgrowth on Meatcutter. Over the past week a team of trail lovers had already done a bang-up job clearing the whole trail and headroom. I went on to Goldeneye and Wishbone. Trails are still dry as heck and the loose rock on the Wishbon...

Time to buy a machete. Meatcutter and probably Redline, both need a good wacking. The nettles and stickers have grown a bunch in the Summer. It was a great time but the front tire is having a harder time sticking to the dirt. Still a fun time and wonderful cool temperature. Track Read more

Great Springtime Run

05 | 13 | '17

Had a great early morning on Lower Springboard, Goldeneye, Wishbone, Ewe Tube, Redline, and Liquid Bread. All are in great shape. There was a 10" tree crossing the Redline trail about 2/3 the way down. Nettles have started growing over your handlegrips in spots so I recommend full finger gloves i...

The ride was enjoyable and challenging at times for speed. The maples and alders are shedding and covering the roots and with the rains we'll have some slippery conditions. Get a ride in soon. Hide your stuff in the trunk and out of view. There was a smash and grab right next to me when I got bac...

Nice combo of trails

06 | 16 | '16

Went and did Lower Springboard, then Meet Cutter, then up to the Park's viewpoint, and then back down to do Goldeneye. Then did Wishbone, and then back to the parking lot via the Pipeline and Beaver Trails just before the convergence zone dumped a bunch rain in a short downpour.

The combo...

Todays track

Did Lord Hill to the towers and then down to the river. Many of the trails are overgrown with flurishing nettles so we got some work to do. Using fingerless gloves left several nettle sting marks and numbness. Use a long sleeve and fingered gloves and leg protection on many of the trails until we...

fun ride

I went on the Temple loop trail and the main trail from the parking area. Mostly dry with some puddles. There are a lot of small branches down from the wind.  If you haven't ridden here before there is a section of the Main trail going to the pipeline cut off trail that is quite rocky j...

A place to relax with a view!

Spent most of my ride today exploring the southeast quarter and east border of the park. It included a little side trip scrammble to Bald Hill and a ride around the gravel pit along the eastern border overlooking the Monroe valley (attached pic). The trails are in good shape after the light rain...
