Inversion (sky) Blues

Inversion awesomeness

12 | 11 | '17

Took advantage of the inversion and rode to The Wheel at Raging today. The trail tread was in awesome shape, no mud or puddles anywhere, and no snow until reaching the clear cut. The snow there was largely rideable, with only a couple short pushes...

Some windfall in areas.

Trails are in great condition. Aside from some down trees here & there. Many hours of recent volunteer trail maintenance visible in the clear cut and North side. Thanks!!!

Heavy Snow at "Campsite"

12 | 07 | '17

Trail is great for about 4.5 miles from the JWT. There were various patches of compact snow and ice all the way up to the viewpoint before the steep tight switchback section. I was lucky enough that the inversion brought temps upove freezing to ma...

Snow is Fun

Olallie is holding up great, very little standing water or mud, no windfall, really good traction! Ran into snow at approx 2500ft.(6 miles away from Cedar Falls Trailhead)  Turned around just past the double log bench viewpoint.

Crank Sisters Ride

Tokul East intermediate/advanced Crank Sisters ride.  This was my first time leading on a Cranksisters Group Ride through EMBA. The rain was coming down pretty strong, however we got a window of sunshine starting around 10am.  We rode on...

Haystack route looking south

I actually rode to the peak just west of Haystack Mountain, just to the South of Sultan and the Blue Mountain Ridge but  I can report that the recent warm fronts have washed the snows away below 3500'. I summited (4100') and there was only 6...

Lake Ride

11 | 24 | '17

After parking at Cedar Falls trailhead in Iron Horse SP, and after finishing a ride on the trial, I headed over to take a look at the lake. The water level on Rattlesnake Lake is really low, so a trip around the lake at shoreline is possible. Lots...

Since the Blue Mtn loop is snowed in for the season, here is another twenty miler nearby you can do below the snowline and even ride to the top of Wallace Falls. The loop takes you to about 2000'. It is all logging road but you can hike the Greg B...

Tieton trail

Trail is cleaned out. New east and west added singletrack. Lots of fresh benched trail. Best trail is a little bit past the third wood bridge. I like to do laps in the upper area. New trail on the left side of the first metal bridge across from th...

Got out early at first light in between the snow falls. The road was bare until about 2700' when some trace accumulations began. The full loop was accomplished but the snows the rest of the weekend will probably shut down the loop unless we get a...

So good

Snow on the top 25% of the trail but still able to ride, dirt lower down is excellent lots of grip and no standing water. Evergeen knocked it out of the park with this trail so good

First time out here.  Perfect weather, but had only 2 hours to spare, so I didn't make it to the lollipop loop.  Overall, I'm very impressed with the quality of the build - getting back to the car with a clean bike after 2 hours of ridin...

Rat Pac Teanaway Loop Track

Joined a ride advertised on the Evergreen Calendar, and so did some 12 other riders - despite being a large group, we were going strong, which was much needed on this loop. We took off from the Rat Pac bike park around 10am,...

Great fall ride

Banner is one of my favorites. It's not particularly difficult, although you'll find enough to challeng you. It's easilly accessible from the ferry - if you're coming from Seattle, park (or bus...or ride!) at the west Seattle ferry and just ride o...

Cool waterfall near the top

Got up to the trail early on a Friday morning, we had planned to go out and were determined to ride despite the weather. It was raining and in the mid 40s at the Rattlesnake Ridge parking lot. 

The trail wasn't slippery even though...

My only regret is that we made the mistake of going out here on the opening weekend of elk season! We had planned to do the 20ish mile short l...

Kind of moot now as the trail closes for bikes tomorrow, but the big tree crossing downstream form Goldmeyer hot springs has been substantially damamged by a tree fall. We looked at it and decided that is was too dangerous to cross.  A photo...

Took the day off to make a nice epic at North Mountain. If you haven't done the park yet, come enjoy those trails. On this trip, I started early, parking at Whitehorse Park and rode the road up to the summit, had lunch at the lookout, and then cam...

Perfect Day

Sunny day - check. Perfect temp - check. Fall colors - check. Beautiful views - check. Hero dirt - check. All the boxes checked. Been riding since 1986 and today was the best. Not many warm sunny days left. Go get some.

Manastash area trails are riding well.  Brush and grasses are falling back so trails are well exposed and open.  KOM time of year.
