Hey, I know this is an old post (rode this a week ago) but given I haven't seen any RR's from the Black Diamond area lately, I thought I'd let others, who may not be in the know (like I was only a week ago), in on one of the best kept secrets for win...

Did an early morning ride before the Pineapple Express. The trails were damp in spots but solid. Cleared a couple fallen snags on YGD. Cyclops and Funner were neat. After the mtb trails I rode the road out to the Cherry Falls and then back along the...

Some standing water in spots and a bit soggy today, but Green mountain seems to drain really well.  I'm surprised this ride isn't listed as a good winter ride. Its one of the few places that you can get decent descent during winter/spring when e...

Elevator, Cyclops, YGD, Sick & Twisted, No Road and Black Label - all clear, all in great semi-frozen shape.  Will degrade a bit when it warms up, but these really are great winter options.  No pooling or puddles.

Below freezing temps made for nearly perfect trail/traction conditions.  The mud was frozen just enought to move like silly putty.  At least one downed fir tree just before the descent to The Hood but easy walk over. Snow caused alot of th...

Didn't actually ride it, but walked the dog to scope it out. Looked halfway decent at first, but ultimately my concern was confirmed after a longer circuit. Some sections of the trails are in fair shape, but a lot of what was "fair" was only so becau...

I took the road up and it was fine--the creek crossings got progressively smaller and more solid frozen on the road up and it was pretty pleasant, actually. I took it fairly easy to not build up too much sweat and to be able to keep moving. The trail...

It rained 1.5 inches yesterday here in South Snohomish County.  Despite all that rain, Paradise Valley was in pretty darn good shape today.  The only parts that are consistently muddy and holding water are parts of the mainline trail, prett...

Took my new bike on a first ride summiting Tiger West by the main road and then rode back down the road and up to Tiger East to do the summit trails, OTG, Joyride,NW Timber and Connector. There was a little snowfall at the top but not enough to cause...

Checked out Soaring Eagle today. Lots of water on the trails, and by lots I mean far more than anywhere else I've been. I was soaked and covered in dirt within 15 minutes of the start. Given all the other choices for wet season riding, doubt I'll be...

Our group ride did East Tiger Summit, Off The Grid, Fully Rigid, Joyride and NW Timber by lights evening of the 18th.  Although conditions in a lot of places were outstanding, the recent and still-active thawing of the ground has produced a numb...

Rode Elevator, Funner, Elevator, YGD, Sick and Twisted, No Road, Black Label.  Still just as good - actually even better - than last week.  Thanks to the locals for continuing to do maintenance out here; no blowdown anywhere.

The Port Gamble trails are a fantastic network of intermediate trails.  While there's no huge payoff at the top, like Tiger Mountain, there are trails in very good condition that cover a lot of area.  You will spend some time on logging tra...

I rode BFH for the first time on a sunny, chilly Sunday afternoon after 5+ days without rain. Trails were nice and dry. As a beginner/intermediate rider, I found these trails a lot of fun. Not too many large roots or obstacles, so I was able to get...

Hit this again after a couple of days of cold/dry weather.  As r1de says, it's in great shape.  We hit Iverson, NW Timber and Joyride before turning around to get back to the cars before total darkness. I think the tree down on Iverson th...

I had not been back to Tiger since the Enduro in September, and was a little bit concerned about how the conditions would be, given the recent rain and wind.  But the word through the grapevine was that it was pretty dry, so with a cool, breezy...

Got a quick post-work ride in at Cherry Valley today, hitting: Elevator, Cyclops, YGD, Sick & Twisted, No Road and Black Label.  All the trails were in amazing shape - no mud or puddles anywhere except a few teeny puddles on No Road and the...

Rode to the south end of the park from the North lot going around the Eastern ponds and numerous fallen leaves. There was a lot of blown down trunks of weak alder that were easy to clear. Some hilly climbs were tougher with the wet leaves and exposed...

From a water standpoint, there is an increasing amount of flow in the streams up here.  That's fine for the ones that are routed through drain pipes or culverts, but for the assorted others that are randomly spilling down the mountainside, they...

[Posted to Tokyl East and West for visibility]   Parked at Tokul West and rode SVT to the East.  Played on some East side trails for a little while before heading back via. West.  For the most part, the trails were in incredible cond...
