Roslyn Rat Pac

10 | 21 | '17

The Rat-Pac trail requires a fair amount of an uphill climbing, but well worth it when you get to the downhill. It is a 12 mile loop with a fair amount of technical riding. The upper area was a bit overgrown, and...

Wet but great traction

01 | 21 | '18

Wanted to explore a little more outside of the skills park so I parked at the power lines east of Giles Rd and started climbing up the southeastern flank of North Mountain on a old road and then newly cut connector to North Mountain Rd. After reac...

Wet no snow

01 | 19 | '18

It was and cool (41) out, saw a couple logging trucks come out before we started up. Road was wet and a little muddy but didn't slow us down much(not that we were going very fast to start with). Fair amount of water on the trail, especially at the...

Overgrown

01 | 13 | '18

Started in Arlington. Sections of deep fresh gravel make this ride more work than you'd expect. The trail gets quite overgrown with blackberry bushes at about 5 miles out.

Was a great ride during the White Christmas of 2017. I did the Tolt Pipeline East of the Thrilla but thought it would still provide information for the folks who haven't gone as far. Parking at Duvall Park and then riding East until the watershed...

Valve stems removed

01 | 14 | '18

Had a great ride with the dog again. But upon returning to the car, there were 8 hunters' SUVs (there for target practice in the nearby Barrow pit) that were disabled by some vandal who removed the valve stems instead of tire slashing.  My Su...

Took the dog for a run

12 | 23 | '17

Started off of Woods Creek Road and after the borrow pit at the entry way I let the dog loose while I climbed to the tower. After reaching the tower and during the return, I found a trail along the buried power routing to the site that ties two ro...

Great winter option

12 | 21 | '17

Great conditions at TKE, as usual for this weather. Roadbeds were a little wet, but trails were awesome. Pretty slippery with the frost coming in, but firm tundra.

Inversion (sky) Blues

Inversion awesomeness

12 | 11 | '17

Took advantage of the inversion and rode to The Wheel at Raging today. The trail tread was in awesome shape, no mud or puddles anywhere, and no snow until reaching the clear cut. The snow there was largely rideable, with only a couple short pushes...

Some windfall in areas.

12 | 10 | '17

Trails are in great condition. Aside from some down trees here & there. Many hours of recent volunteer trail maintenance visible in the clear cut and North side. Thanks!!!

Heavy Snow at "Campsite"

12 | 07 | '17

Trail is great for about 4.5 miles from the JWT. There were various patches of compact snow and ice all the way up to the viewpoint before the steep tight switchback section. I was lucky enough that the inversion brought temps upove freezing to ma...

Snow is Fun

Olallie is holding up great, very little standing water or mud, no windfall, really good traction! Ran into snow at approx 2500ft.(6 miles away from Cedar Falls Trailhead)  Turned around just past the double log bench viewpoint.

Haystack route looking south

I actually rode to the peak just west of Haystack Mountain, just to the South of Sultan and the Blue Mountain Ridge but  I can report that the recent warm fronts have washed the snows away below 3500'. I summited (4100') and there was only 6...

Lake Ride

11 | 24 | '17

After parking at Cedar Falls trailhead in Iron Horse SP, and after finishing a ride on the trial, I headed over to take a look at the lake. The water level on Rattlesnake Lake is really low, so a trip around the lake at shoreline is possible. Lots...

Since the Blue Mtn loop is snowed in for the season, here is another twenty miler nearby you can do below the snowline and even ride to the top of Wallace Falls. The loop takes you to about 2000'. It is all logging road but you can hike the Greg B...

Tieton trail

Trail is cleaned out. New east and west added singletrack. Lots of fresh benched trail. Best trail is a little bit past the third wood bridge. I like to do laps in the upper area. New trail on the left side of the first metal bridge across from th...

Got out early at first light in between the snow falls. The road was bare until about 2700' when some trace accumulations began. The full loop was accomplished but the snows the rest of the weekend will probably shut down the loop unless we get a...

First time out here.  Perfect weather, but had only 2 hours to spare, so I didn't make it to the lollipop loop.  Overall, I'm very impressed with the quality of the build - getting back to the car with a clean bike after 2 hours of ridin...

Great fall ride

Banner is one of my favorites. It's not particularly difficult, although you'll find enough to challeng you. It's easilly accessible from the ferry - if you're coming from Seattle, park (or bus...or ride!) at the west Seattle ferry and just ride o...
