Sometimes you just need a shift-free hammerfest in the solitude of the back yard forest. Today was one of those days...  Soaring Eagle delivered the stress-relief I was after! Trails are prime, hardly anybody in there, and weather is perfect.

Was unsure how Preston would be flowing with the recent rains, but pleasantly surprised!  A teeny bit slick on the summit trail, but otherwise perfect tack and no mud anywhere.  Rode everything except Iverson.

Rode the "Enduro Special" loop - Iverson CW, climb the road to Summit, Summit to Preston, climb crossover road to Fully Rigid, Fully Rigid to Silent Swamp, repeat the road to Fully Rigid, Fully Rigid to Joyride to NW Timber.  And after all that,...

One very minor snow patch to walk over(25 feet) - will probably be gone in a few days.  Trail is all rideable. The Corral Pass road is ungated and snowfree.

No mud, water anywhere. But new home construction took out southwest entrance.

The trail is all dry and just turning dusty so grab it before it all turns into a sand pool. In the forested sections, it was perfect tacky and not wet at all. The vistas, of course, were awesome mainly thanks to the bluebird day we had. The fire roa...

A few trails closed for repairs, but what's open is flowing greased weasel speed.

They are actively logging off a side road about 2 or 3 miles up the Suntop road.  Be on the lookout for trucks but probably not an issue on weekends We did not go to the lookout so I have no info about the upper trail piece. Still 5-7 easy to s...

Wow, Evergreen really created a gem - it's still a little rough around the edges (literally ;-) but all-in-all a nice mix of single track and double track with some forest road mixed in for a good measure. This was my first time riding the phase 3 po...

It will be hard to top this ride at Tiger - maybe the best ever for me. Perfect weather, perfect dirt, Preston was DRY (look at the pic!), not one other rider seen the whole time, and some face-time with Rainier at the summit. I found my new favorit...

It's in great shape.  Getting a little brushy, but the gnomes will take care of that soon.  Otherwise everything is rolling fine!

Decided I didn't want to fight I-90 traffic today so I ended up at CV for a few hours instead. Funner was riding nice, though starting to get a bit overgrown near the bridge and up top. Cyclops was really nice until until the bottom where it too was...

If you're a clean-bike freak (like me), you'll want to bring a fender (unlike me) or give it a few days. Mostly awesome, but a lot of speed-sapping puddles.

Started at Camp Shepard and rode White River to Buck Creek. Crossed the hwy then up the Buck Creek Road about a mile or so to the church camp - "Berachah at Buck Creek" entrance.  This is not a private road and you are allowed to cross this prop...

We were denied from fs7250 to deep creek yesterday at about 40" on snotel corral pass. We lost the trail in the switchbacks and climbed up to see over ridge down to the south facing terminus where noble nob slips from south to north before entering t...

We got a shuttle from the local taxi in Wintrop. I was $25-30 pre person with 10 people. They took us to the top of the Starvation Mountain and we rode 5 hours back to town. Trail finding from the top to Blue Buck Trail is pretty easy after you come...

VooDoo: check. Ryan's: check. Gravy Train: check (rolling fast!). HLC: closed for repair.

Overall the trail was in great shape but there is still lots of water in the creeks and there's a lot of them. At the 20th creek crossing I stopped counting although you can ride through most of them. The few big ones, however, were rather diffi...

Weather and scenery were amazing!  Trail is in awesome shape, but was really dusty and loose in places.  Amazed at how well the new reroute looks already, but will be even better after packing in.

Due to an avalanche/landslide this trail is not passable.  The slide is about 1.5 mi from the trailhead.
