Road Tolt MacDonald today. Nice ride. First time riding here. Per advisement road the perimiter roads first - got a feel for the layout. Yes, IAB is tough, but not too bad in terms of grunt. I was able to ride about 2/3rds of it. So... what is up wit...

This was my first time up Hansen Ridge and what an amazing job Evergreen MTB has done to carve out this trail. Rode from the shooting pit to the Lake and back. Got a flat about 1 mile before reaching the lake and stupidly didn't have a pump. Thankful...

Had a great time riding around the park after work today. Lots of twisty trails with roots. Lots of short punchy climbs. Several logs to clear. Some of the park is faster flowy type riding, some is a little slower and technical, which I love. No mud...

I'm new in town and started hitting this trail 3-4 times a week. For the last 3 weeks on almost every ride I keep finding new trails. I know the guys at Camas bike shop do a group ride at least once a week here and I could probably save a lot of time...

The trail is in good shape, the creeks are mostly dry or running slowly. The trail is getting overgrown with tall grasses and blackberry bushes in a few places but nothing too bad. I road from the Mt. Si parking lot all the way up to the Middle Fork...

Dry, hot and dusty. Rode it up to the intersection at the basin and back down. Few rocky technical places but a steady grind up and an on the brakes but fun descent back down. Fire in Ingalls Creek area meant that it was somewhat smoky but the wind w...

I went for my first ride at Moss Lk. yesterday. Printed out the map and was glad to have it on the maze of intersecting roads and hard to find trails. Thanks to those who have worked out there and marked many of the trails. I rode throught the gate...

Standard loop now with picking up PBR off the third switch back on Preston. Just like getting a powder day with this new option and cutting out the road climb on the crossover. Flow and tech similar to Fully Rigid and Joy Ride but with much better si...

This is one of my favorite trails.  The upper section of trail was in amazing shape, dry with good climbing traction and not too loose.  The trail below the Fawn Ridge roads are in pretty bad shape.  The logging a few years ago left th...

I'd never ridden here before, it was a nice mix of fast wider trails with some gems of singletrack.  Definitely take the map, and keep a lookout for turns as some trails are overgrown a bit and others are wide/obvious.  This was a good plac...

Did the loop CCW. Going up Northway there are signs of heavy horse usage.  Trail has been brushed - not sure if this was done this year or late last year but not so overgrown. They are blasting/jackhammering the top of Powder Bowl so have close...

G-Man and the crew had a very productive work party on Osborne Mountain trail, at the very end of the trail as it comes back into Big Creek CG after long and fast descent.  Working with Ranger Rick from the Forest Service, the crew cleared +/- 1...

Rode Spring Lake trails for the first time. Some observations: Park at the State fish boat launch - but you will need a permit to park there. A few spots to park at the trail head which is just opposite the launch, but wonder about security. Trai...

Rode from the main TH almost all the way up to the Lava Caves. Trail is entirely rideable; the only section of hike-a-bike starts about 2.5 miles in and ends at about the 3 mile mark and it is only because of the steepness of the grade. There are min...

Dry and awesome! The trails are in good shape (they get really wet in the winter) but they are completely dry right now. As always at Banner, watch out for horses and walkers. Throw your iPod on and go have fun! Banner is perfect if you want a carefr...
