We parked at De Roux TH, rode up the road to the Esmerelda Basin trail and did the loop CCW. Trail is in really good shape, except for about 10 blowdowns in the last two miles of trail. I assume this warm year has opened this trail up way ahead of sc...

It wasn’t the best day for sightseeing on Hansen Ridge but the cool damp weather was perfect for a twenty mile out to the lake and back ride. Because of the fog, I didn’t add the extra spur along the high point, or ride up to Mt Gardner. That’s a rid...

First of all, thanks for posting this ride and the GPS info. It's always fun to have some new rides off the beaten path. Though this ride is never technical, the climb is challenging at times and rocketing down the twisty fire road on the descent was...

Roads to trail head were in good shape. After the ride, I drove down to checkout Iron Bear and Miller Peak trailheads, and the road was good all the way. Maybe 10 trees down across the trail. Streams are low. Heard lots of birds chirping. Squirrels...

Absolutely awesome trail.  Im not great with any kind of technical climbing so it was 2/3 riding 1/3 pushing for me, but only because of the demanding line choices on the way up- it was never too steep.  I rode/pushed all the way to the pass which ha...

Parasite and Silkworm nice as usual, good grip through the berms through Silk.  Tapeworm looks like someone recently took a weed wacker to the parts that get overgrown under the power lines.  Thin low hanging limbs above some of the doubles...

We completed another new trail segment that connects the Outback Trail to the very top of the Waterbar Heaven Trail. As of 5/19/2015 the trail is not open as we need to do a little limbing and hope for a little more rain to settle it in.  Once w...

This will be my last ride & report at Cherry Valley until probably September.  It was an absolutely perfect day out there today: pleasant temps, hero trails, and cool shade under canopy.  The brush is coming in with a vengeance - salmon ber...

Rode the full loop Saturday starting at the bottom of skookum, riding up FR 7315 to access the trail at top and finished on trail. No snow at Fire lookout. Beautiful sunny day of Mt. Rainer. Did hit snow in a few places when heading down trail at oth...

Road #230 is closed because of a major landslide in the Lower dungeness/Gold creek trailhead area. The trailhead is taped off and does not look very safe with major cracks in the road and collapsed trees. We have left our car at the beginning of roa...

First time doing a report and first time on this route.  I was looking for a physically challenging outing on moderate trails without the crowds.  CCC delivers, and it is a GREAT time to do it.  This trail doesn't see much traffic anyw...

Started this ride at the Cherry Valley parking area and headed east to the falls and kept going all the way to the top of Mt Stohr. The continuing road is in good shape with no obstacles to overcome except for a gate covered with logging debris. It’s...

First time riding. The directions from Clem Elem starting point arent great. Take the coal creek trail all the way to Roslyn and then the trailhead is right near the intersection of Arizona and C Street. From there, follow the trail as it looks most...

Skookum is drying out. No more standing water but still lots of soft spots.  Big news is that the HUGE "Tourist Tree" tree located at the end of the campground(if you do the S/WR loop you ride right by it) has fallen.  Looks like the FS did...

The rebuild of KGB is 99% done, and the trail is good to ride.  We'll still be back out there one or two more times buffing out a few corners, the little hike-a-bike up from the stream, and fine tuning certain features, but it's all good to go....

Added this trail to the site. It is the 1400' peak to the north of Cherry Valley. At the top it has a small view of Mt. Baker and some views to Monroe and Sultan. It was a nice ride for exploring. Next time I'll try linking to it from the Cherry Vall...

Don't let the warm clear weather fool you; the recent rains reactivated a lot of the muddy areas and turned the forest into a steamy jungle.  I think I saw Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner hacking their way to Cartegena!  The upper trail...

Trails were in prime condition, 7rh time to this trail network, new trail was very fun but is still being worked on, very busy that day, parking lot was full so we parked on side of road like others. Good for beginners, freeride trail needs bigger st...
