This was a wonderful steady climb (but not a crazy climb).  You can bite off as much as you want but we road for a couple hours up and had an amazingly fun and fast ride down.  It's very hot in the afternoon so bring plenty of water.  ...

Reminder that it's fee parking if you drive all the way in but if you park before the sign on the side of the road it's not.  Trail was in great shape but in the dryer weather it's a little dusty so no big deal.  Very fun!

Rode solo with drop-off shuttle from Devil's Backbone TH near Handy Springs. Note that as of 6/13/2015, FS5900 (aka Shady Pass Rd) is closed at Shady Pass so the TH is not accessible from the Entiat side -- you must drive up 5900 from 25-Mile Creek i...

Rode Hansen Ridge solo today. Pretty exposed but nice cool breeze kept it comfortable. Rode out clockwise onto lollipop and then into phase 2 until a bear told me to go back (near beginning of the double track, where single track goes back into fores...

Did the ride out to the lake, starting in a clockwise direction (so up the road to Seattle water gate and onto single track from there) on what turned out to be a very hot day.  I'd say it was a good thing the lake was there and it was the perfe...

Great day in the Gulch. Took the fire road up past the Devils Gulch Trail to Mission Ridge Trail. Temps were in the 90's so a bit of a grunt on the way up. But trail was in great shape all the way down. Rivers were all passable and rideable except fo...

Trail was in great condition.  Only saw 3 other bikers.  Recent rains made trail nice and buff.

First time on this trail or in this area for that matter. My trooper of a wife dropped me off at the intersection of NF-9712 and Mission Ridge Rd. Due to my poor planning I was not aware she could have driven up 9712 to the trail head! Worse, I passe...

I just road at Duthie Hill today, it never stops being so enjoyable! I had only been a few times before and have been able to progress every time. Really nice to ride in the sun.

This trail is virtually snow-free and all the blowdown has been cleared.  Gate at the bottom of Corral Pass Rd is still locked so you gotta earn it.

Had a great loop on Buck. Trail's dry, except for a couple lingering springs just passed the Deer Country sign. The last final steep descent on singletrack is getting a little dusty and blown out from sliding tires, but super fun still.

My wife and our two dogs and I set out to ride this trail as a first bikepacking adventure.  We were excited about the river crossings, not disuaded by them.  The first mile or so of the trail is beautiful, rolling single-track.  Afte...

We rode up NF-7100 road from parking area.  All creeks on the ascent up the road are crossable with rocks/logs in place to avoid having to ford through the water.  On the ride down Devil’s Gulch trail, we encountered quite a few small pudd...

Rode here today with my 11 year old.  The views are fantastic for much of the ride.  Perfect for taking your time with a trail snack.  Our route was to climb the road to the next gate and then head onto the trail.  We rode the tra...
