I went out here with my 4 and 5 year olds just to hit the bottom parts of the single track and it was just covered in horse poop.  Wow, I love the signs in the parking lot that say something like "pack everything out".  I guess everything e...

Outstanding fall conditions; no mud pits/bogs/puddles anywhere, just a few soft "bruises" in places.  Rode fast fender-free and came back spotless.  Beautiful colors and pretty popular on a Sunday afternoon.  Two thumbs up.

Rode the first half of the Adventure Trail (10 miles in-10 miles out).  Trail is in great shape.  Technically - beginner but grunt factor of intermediate. There is lots of elevation gained and lost but all rideable and fun. The part I rode...

not a lot to go on for directions. single track is grown over often but clearly used by horses. signs say no "trespassing" at every turn on and off the powerlines.

Really excellent trail and it's in good shape.  Super fun, extremely sustained descent.

This ride is pretty dicey.  Huge stretches of trail are currently unrideable.   The uphill from 4 th of July is a long trudge.  Fire activity seems to have turned the entirety of the slope to loose scree and post-fire regrowth.  ...

Recent rains packed down the loose areas, but no mud anywhere.  A scattering of the first fall leaves (alder, early big leaf) make for fleeting thoughts of jack-o-lanterns and turkey supper in the not too distant future.  Only saw 5 bikes a...

Did the clock-wise route (ie. along Kachess lake up the gravel road and south down the ridge). It was peek-a-boo sun between the ground level clouds at the top. The huckleberries are past prime for sure. It must have rained pretty well up here the ni...

Took Tiger Summit trail to Off the Grid. Summit was in pretty good shape as were the first rollovers and step ups on Off the Grid. Second third of the trail was pretty mangled; slick rocks/roots/ brake divets/ and so forth making for some cantankerou...

Rode Victoria for the first time with a couple of friends.  The trails seem to be in good shape although there was some mud in places.  The nettles were also out.  Even on the sunny warm day that I was there in the woods was reasonable...

Dawn Patrol at Tiger this AM, found OTG packing in and drying out nice. FR and JR both in good shape, and recent brushing on NW Timber.

We had the usual great day at Devil's Gulch. We climbed the fire road up and decided to drop in at the Devil's Gulch trail rather than head up the extra couple of miles to Mission Ridge trail. There was a bunch of contruction near the trailhead, but...

A lot of signs of recent extraordinary rains - but fortunately not on the trails themselves!  Aside from a few puddles in the parking lot/access trail, and a few very minor soft spots in places, the you'd never otherwise know it had rained here....

This is a really top notch route, don't miss it! I hit the ridge near the summit just as a rain squall came over.  Swirling clouds mist and rain blasting upwards from both sides of the knife edge ridge as I rolled along in a completely whited o...
