Trail is basically perfect up to the ridge cross-over (the first section of road-to-trail conversion). Map says that's the first ~3.7 miles. No snow at all on the first section of single-track, before the road-to-trail conversion.  Once we hit...

A buddy and I left the upper lot and made it to Stan's Overlook and the entrance to Upper Poppin Tops in 40 mins.  We felt pretty good about that time, Peloton rides are paying off in improved endurance on the trail. No snow on the way up,  ...

Started early this morning at the base of the lower shuttle road to Lower Skyline. The snow started after the first switchback around 2100'. You can pedal for a bit but have to walk it soon after. There is a tree across the road for the big saws and...

Parked at Rattlesnake Road this morning and took the road all the way to the base of No Service where the snow was too deep to keep climbing. We have a few more weeks before we can enjoy the upper trails. I tried to climb Return Policy but the openin...

I left from the upper lot about 8:15 AM, the lot was about 25% full. UM 1 and UM 2 are snow free and great dirt. UM 3 has some walkable snow patches, and the whole first section of PT Upper is snow packed. There's a tire wide track in the snow about...

Started from the upper lot at 7am and took the Connector to Masterlink. Rode Masterlink to its top, all clear. The road up there isn't too ridable yet but it's close. Quicklink is clear except for two switchbacks where 20' sections of snow are and ma...

There was way too much snow on the trail. I pushed my bike up most of the way as well as coming down. The snow was grippy in certain areas, causing me to fall over the handlebars. Even lower poppin tops was not a fun and smooth ride, It's best to wai...

Before the 9am workparty I climbed up the newly graded and gravelled access road and came down the eastside's main trail. It was a little slippery but drained well in most spots. There are a ton of options on the east side you can find on Trailforks....

Had a wonderful morning with a friend from work doing Barracuda, Escorlator, Funner, Cyclops, and Sick and Twisted. All were clear with some slick spots but they were all fun. After the friend left I went out to the Falls for the picture and water. T...

I wasn't sure where the snow would be on Tiger and there weren't any recent reports so here it is: Climbing trail to Inside Passage is all rideable. The upper 1/3 or so is on snow, but it's not much and it's pretty slushy so it's really not bad. As s...

After an hour at the skills park, I drove up to the lower shuttle road at the bottom of Lower Skyline. I climbed the freshly cleared and packed shuttle road (great job DNR or contractor!) and noted a tree needing the big saws at the bottom of Upper S...

Had a good early morning running the east side trails at the skills park for about an hour before going higher up on the mountain. The trails are not muddy and have only a couple of windblown fir bows here and there that you can ride over. I cleared...

3 of rode Grand Ridge today and ran into a cougar, almost literally.  The 1st person came around a corner and found the cat on the trail, inadvertantly chased the cat down the trail, where it jumped off the trail and stopped.  He yelled lou...

Great area and ride, trains seem to handle all the recent rain well. Some ares a little overgrow but nothing you can't ride through.

Just had a wonderful day running Lower Skyline and the lower half of Out of The Blue.  I parked at the bottom of Lower Skyline and noticed the lower shuttle road has been regraded so that made the climb easier. Thank you DNR. I climbed past Lowe...

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-...

This was my first time riding swan creek and it did not disappoint. Despite the heavy rain that has been pouring down the last week or so, the trails were running pretty good.  There were puddles, but not as much peanut butter mud as ji would ha...

Been in Florida for a family theme park tour and a trip to the Space Coast. I missed the delayed SpaceX launch so I needed to make up for that by getting back into some real topography. Also, my unofficial version of a COVID test, is a lot of miles o...
