Parked at the beginning of CCC extension, and rode it to the Middle Fork campground and back. That section is in primo condition.
Then we rode up the CCC proper towards North Bend to the first forest road crossing. The trail is a jungle with blood-thirsty brambles jumping at your arms and shins like it's their last meal. Still pretty fun, especially the rock gardens, which test your abilities to finesse through some baby heads. No other riders out there - not surprising as this is one of the least-ridden trails in the area. Still, the Extension portion is a beautiful ride.
