West to East

04 | 24 | '18

Did a West to East circumnavigation yesterday. Found the west end trails in perfect condition. Golden Spike still has some elephant traps, more so on the west end.  East is in decent shape, but definitely more face whippers (FT3K) and atomize...

Still plenty of snow

04 | 24 | '18

Ran into unridable (soft and melting though) snow at 6.9 miles in (as measured from the parking lot); at a altitude of 3170 feet.  A couple of trees across the trail.  My guess is that it'll be snow free in perhaps a couple of weeks (ear...

Good to go!

04 | 17 | '18

Rideable to the top; some remaining snow on the last bit of fire road to the summit, but that's probably gone by now.  Off the Grid is in great condition.  Preston has one major tree fall blocking the trail, and is super super wet. ...

have your permit

04 | 21 | '18

Trail conditions were great and weather was good.   BUT, be aware a WA Dept of Fish and Wildlife officer (contracted by CambellGlobal) was checking for permits.  I had mine, but apparently 90% don't.  First offense is a warning and...

Snow at top of the canyon route but lower section where ski hill connector trail meets rosy was fun as hell this weekend. Met a trail crew today, thanks you two for the good work.

Rain shadow joy

04 | 14 | '18

I was following the weather pattern the last half of the week looking for a dry place to enjoy a ride. The rain shadow developed over Anacortes overnight and I started off of the 23rd trailhead around 8am. The trails were solid with only a couple...

Bike here often

04 | 03 | '18

I am relatively new to mountain biking and this is my home course.  It is fantastic.  Lots of variety with some easier trails (Mainline), some moderate trails (Cascara, Southern Traverse), and some harder trails (Red Alder, Cedar). ...

New Trail

03 | 31 | '18

New trail is open, great add on. Only bummer is that horses have made it pretty rough as the dirt is still soft. Everywhere else is consistent and great. Still a small mud pit on the east side of the area.

First Ride

03 | 28 | '18

Trail was nice, a little soft in areas with one mud pit due to snow melt and run off. Other then that, trail was great. Due to it being a hiking trail as well, it was fairly busy since it was a nice evening.

Submitted by vhiggins on 03/30/2018

Found a series of heavy tracked vehicle (excavator?) carnage running through some of the trail areas. No major damage to the trails, but some close calls and some clearing. Not sure if this is a precursor to logging or development. On the other ha...

Fat Tire Snow Biking

03 | 18 | '18

This is a blast! Was a little too warm and soft snow takes more effort to ride. Best if its colder than 35 degrees. Rode 19 miles from Crystal Springs. Requires a daily snow park pass of $20.

Weekend of 3/24 is supposed to be snowing and I...

Good times at the gulch!

03 | 19 | '18

Japanese Gulch is in good shape, with the exception of some muddy and wet trails at Lower elevations and close to the railroad track. Fast flowy single track with short steep climbs make it more challenging than you think. Be prepared to quickly s...

Hit snow at 1,600. Chose to do Iron Horse in the snow and it was serious work out on a fat tire and a lot of fun. It would be great if Evergreen could find...

Rode Masterlink up with the intention of riding to the top. Only got to the first stream crossing before we met riders coming down who said there was a foot of snow on the road and quicklink did not look ridable. We went and did the inside passage...

Snow and wet mud!

03 | 10 | '18

Rode up the singletrack about 2 miles but was stopped by lots of snow on the trail. Went back down to the fire road and rode that up to the 3 mile mark but unfortunately ran into even more snow. Ended the ride and returned to the parking lot. On a...

Olallie is riding well. A littlel loose in places with some blow down scattered around.  Such a great climb!!! Snow starts at about 1400' but after this weekend it should be gone.

alternative way to the loop

I knew the ridgeline was full of snow so getting up the lollipop stick to the loop would've been futile. I wanted to try getting to the bottom of the loop by going up the rattlesnake road past the substation and then as far as the conditions would...

This is looking west up the north road.

There has been significant logging and clearing at Tolt. Vast areas of trees and trails are gone. The middle section south of the South Road is cleared. Everything along the north and west roads is cleared. It really hurt today to see what's been...

Otter Falls

Bright sunny Saturday in Feb.  This was a good choice to avoid crowds on other trails.  I went in to this thinking I'd be carrying my bike over trees more than anything else, but it was actually fairly clear - maybe only a dozen or so do...

Snow  on Lower East Tiger Summit Trail

Preston Railroad

02 | 09 | '18
Preston RR has lots of water in the trail and it is super cold. The snow is not an issue and looks awesome. Half the ride I felt like I was riding through a creek of ice water. Rode a StumpJumper with 650 3.0 tires at 13psi and had lots of root slip....

Trail in great shape

02 | 07 | '18

In spite of January's heavy rains, the trails ride very well.   Masterlink has very little mud. Summit, OTG, Fully Rigid and Joy Ride are perfect.  A few boggy spots on Northwest Timber.

The ride was all a fog

02 | 03 | '18

Parked at the upper lot and did Iverson and then the road and then returned the same way. It would be a nice view in good weather but the weather was 1/4 to 1/2 mile visibility and light misty shower. It would also be nice when folks are flying so...

Great Trails

Rode the new loop, first time in a while. The trails were great not too muddy, would recommend this as a great local place to ride after work.
