Other than a blowdown at the Preston end of Silent Swamp and some wetness on Joy Ridge everything is great.

Elevator is 100% clear and in prime shape. Escorlator is about 95% - there is one big tree still across the trail, and in the vicinity a lot of raking would be helpful. Funner is 100%. YGD has 1 small (8") flow-buster across the trail.  Other...

My basic advice for this ride is go with someone who knows the route.  There are a lot a places where you can make a wrong turn once you get to the Horse Pasture Hill and Redmond Watershed section  I will have to wait until a Thursday night...

Rode to the fire road and back.  Trails were 95% rideable.  Some old compact snow in spots < 6" deep.  Light dusting that should be melted by the end of the weekend.  Other than that great shape!

Kind of regret we rode Off the Grid today as it would have been better to stay away for the trail's sake - there are a few soft and muddy spots in the upper part, especially where recent dirt fills were done. I'm afraid that with tens (if not hundred...

Mild temps took me out today, Trais were in fair condition but in good shape for mid Febuary. Rode east and west side both sides had some muddy sections but all ridable.

Fawn Ridge is the bottom 1/3 of the Suntop Trail.  Trail starts where the Suntop trail crosses the logging road. You access this trailhead by climbing this logging road. I stayed to the road(7+ miles) all the way up.  Road is still gated a...

We rode East Tiger Summit, Off The Grid, Fully Rigid, Joyride and NW Timber.  The trails were in awesome shape - basically packed hero dirt - everywhere, except for NW Timber which was a little wet in places.  But really just a little wet h...

Did 4.5 miles in soaring eagle tonight with my son. LOTS of deep mud on the pipeline trail (PLT) near the north parking lot. The elevated sections were perfect. Between 27 and the PLT there is a small stream running down the trail. Water and mud are...

Rode the White River Trail up and down. Wet and slick but no mud and no standing water. One big tree down near Rd 72/410 trailhead. A couple of smaller trees on the upper part (near Corral Pass Rd).

I took NWT-Joyride-Silent Swamp-Crossover Road up and it's the wettest and muddiest I've ridden so far this winter.  Not surprising given all the rain recently.  The lower down trails have some increasingly large mud pits, even Silent Swamp...

Did the full Preston to PBR, Fully Rigidto Joy Ride and out NWT today. Driest and best running trail on the mountain right now is PBR. JoyRide is also running sweet as well. You'll get wet on Preston, but no where near as bad as it used to be And Ful...

Took the car and bike on this forest service road to explore Gold Mountain above Darington. The main FS road has a couple places where tree clearing needed to be completed. The rains made for a wet, and foggy day so the viewpoints weren't available....

Took the last of the blow downs out on Monday. Escorlator is clear with one small reroute about midway up to get around a stump divot.

Taylor mountain is located in the perfect spot for people either north or south of highway 18, the terrain has all kinds of potential for epic riding, but the trails are in no condition for winter riding. 70% of lower trails are covered in multiple i...

Just finished a two hour tour of Banner on the singlespeed. Great place. Felt like a very dense Paradise Valley. Trails were in great shape. Signs of recent blowdown clearing and shrubing on some trails. Took the map from the visitkitsap site. Map is...

Went up the Bessemer Road too until I ran out of time. I reached 2800 feet and still no snow except on the ridges. Streams and washouts were big so you'll get your feet wet a couple times.  The track and pictures are at the link below.  Gre...
