Just east of Gold Mountain are Prairie and White Chuck Mountains and Rat Trap Pass (3160'). Along with the Mountain Loop Hwy and SR530, when you add Forest Service Roads 23, 27, and 25, and Suiattle River Road, you have a wonderful 45 miler way of...

View from Second Lookout
10 | 20 | '20

Rode up to the second lookout this morning.  It's a real grunt, some short steep sections and a ton of switchbacks. Nice and cool though, a bit misty. Blasted down, and great practice pre-turning to be able to carry speed through the switchba...

NW Timber Root Roll
10 | 17 | '20

I enjoyed the mud and large puddles on Inside Passage, Joy Ride and NW Timber this morning. Really muddy and wet, chilly until you start moving but "If you're riding in the PNW you're riding in the rain." The off camber root roll about halfway dow...

Circumnavigation of Taylor Mountain
10 | 15 | '20

Started at 7am from the lower Tiger lot with the plan to summit and circumnavigate Taylor Mountain. I had mapped out the double track needed and went down the west side of Taylor. The roads felt like the ones at Cherry Valley's and Alpine Baldy's...

Weird tree!

Honestly more like Blue Square Open Space. There are some listed black runs here with a few features, but other than a jump line in the free ride park it's really an intermediate area. I rode Crooshal, Super Charger and Fresh Squeezed and they're...

The trail was in great shape on October 12th, 2020.  A few small mud puddles but the trail was firm and tight.  The hoof prints on the newest trail (Turtle Gulch) seem to be smoothing out a little after the recent rain.

It was sad to see how overgrown and neglected these trails have become. There were lots of blackberry vines, scotch broom, and tall grass encroaching on the trails and several large downed trees completely blocking the way.

Olallie's a perfect morning ride! No crowds on a Thursday morning, nice and cool, damp but not wet and almost no braking bumps. I rode up to the second lookout, and loved the fast flow all the way down. Great trail for working on switchbacks. &nbs...

Creek from Bridge on NW Timber
10 | 04 | '20

We rode Master Link to Quick Link and found the new Power Link on the left hand side of the fire road. This is a slightly longer and less steep climb to East Tiger Summit. It eliminates the brutal fire road climb, and is nicely graded, machine cut...

62 miles, 4300' vertical, pretty on a clear day ;-)

Started in downtown Darrington at the IGA and took the Whitehorse Trail past the fairgrounds to Swede Haven Rd. There, you head north to the beginning of Forest Service Road 18 and begin the climb up the east, then west, flanks of the Segelsen Rid...

We had a rad day on the trail.  Family was Dad, Sons Anders 14, and Merritt 11.  It was only the 11 year olds second time on this trail and he crushed it.  The trail is in good shape and we had a great visit.

We had some rain last week so the trail was in great condition! The kids had a wonderful time swooping on Freund Canyon, smooth and clean. Lower Rosy is a bitdusty and dry with plenty of harsh break bumps towards the bottom but totally worth it.&n...

The trail was great today! The family did the Ski Hill to Freund Canyon parking lot, back to Leavenworth and back up to Ski Hill loop. Trail was dry and very little dust. A little washboard in places. All around great Take a Kid Mountain Biking da...

Henry's Ridge snake trails are riding very well! The rains did a great job of firming things back up that had become so loose due to lack of moisture. Edges have stabilized and only light debris. Feel free to push it hard roots are not slippery at...

We had a blast! Some of the hills on the NE side were too steep for our 5 year old to pedal but she managed to push her bike up. Nice playground at the end for motivation to finish the ride. Crossing the dam with bikes can be a challenge with othe...

Skills area is in good shape, berm at the end of progress report could use a little work and the switchbacks cut-throughs on twisted sister should be closed down

We chose Redmond Bike Park for the Evergreen Bike Alliance's Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day Challenge. It is a small loop with so much fun packed in. Even my 7yr old was confident enough to ride the black diamond route. Well groomed
