Ride Reports

Cool waterfall near the top

Got up to the trail early on a Friday morning, we had planned to go out and were determined to ride despite the weather. It was raining and in the mid 40s at the Rattlesnake Ridge parking lot. 

The trail wasn't slippery even though...

Some derelict infrastructure near the start of the trail

My only regret is that we made the mistake of going out here on the opening weekend of elk season! We had planned to do the 20ish mile short l...

Kind of moot now as the trail closes for bikes tomorrow, but the big tree crossing downstream form Goldmeyer hot springs has been substantially damamged by a tree fall. We looked at it and decided that is was too dangerous to cross.  A photo...

Took the day off to make a nice epic at North Mountain. If you haven't done the park yet, come enjoy those trails. On this trip, I started early, parking at Whitehorse Park and rode the road up to the summit, had lunch at the lookout, and then cam...

Perfect Day

10 | 27 | '17

Sunny day - check. Perfect temp - check. Fall colors - check. Beautiful views - check. Hero dirt - check. All the boxes checked. Been riding since 1986 and today was the best. Not many warm sunny days left. Go get some.

One of my new favorites

I wasn't prepared for the sheer tranquility and breathtaking views of this trail, nor its virtually relentless ascent.  It is an instant classic and a new personal favorite.  The routing is expertly contoured to maximize pedaling efficie...

Blue Line

10 | 21 | '17

I rode the blue lines this morning; Dueces, Movin'on, Breavehart, StepItUp, and Bootcamp in that order.   These trails are clear from the Wed night windstorm with one exception. There is a tree near the end of bootcamp. Someone stacked some b...

Gold star!

Manastash area trails are riding well.  Brush and grasses are falling back so trails are well exposed and open.  KOM time of year.

How to get to the top

To top of Mt WA

I rode the main Olallie trail to the camp (the flat pad above the second set of switchbacks shown on the annotated map) and then continued on as many others have done to the top of Mt WA.

Here are directions and a map for anyone who wants...

Epic Awesomness

10 | 01 | '17

This is such a great epic ride! Beautiful views, a good mix of flow and technical riding and you finish right in town. We encountered snow but still had a fun time and we were still able to ride everything. The trail is in good shape, which always...

Great Ride

Smith Creek is closed in between the top of the steps and where it rejoins with the road.  Trail is closed due to washouts.  There are a few up there below the rock face, but mostly it's just overgrown.  Don't recommend this section...

Not sure what the weather this weekend is going to do snow wise but as of 9/28 everything is clear of snow and in great shape.  No evidence of any smoke from the Uno Peak fire.  Loose and dry as to be expected in places but all of the de...

Super Loop GPX

Eight Mile Route

07 | 03 | '17

I like this route because you don't go down steep decents for no reason. This route includes Oryan (Flowtron type run). When the rain comes the North side get sipery but the South side does much better.

Greasy When Wet

Great Fall ride - did the lollipop route. The recent rain has eliminated the clearcut dusty conditions. The climb to the bench was in great shape.  The downhill was still wet and got progressively slicker. The steep berms in the last section...

My favorite route

09 | 16 | '17

For first timers: There's basically no signage. I highly recommend parking at the "Tails and Trails" dog park, taking the trail to your left when facing the dog park, past the gate and down to the railroad tracks. To get to my fav...

Here's a shout out to Buck's Bikes and Buck for his vision for Seabrook biking!

I rode 'Narnia' and 'Witch' trail's.

If you like fresh forest trails with a soft forest floor, roots and a couple of drops these are a fun rides. And i...

I checked this ride out on this site. Then I google mapped the area and printed out the little topo map from the very bottom of the description page. The folks who generated that map should be applauded for their ballziness but as far as I could t...

2017?

Has anyone rode this trail this Summer/Fall loop? No reports this year. Snow is there now. Now it's still a "bucket list" ride for next year.

approaching marine front over Rattlesnake Ridge

Last of the smoke

Had a wonderful time on the new trail even with the hazy valley below. The incoming rain front was just crawling over Rattlesnake and then evaporating. It was an impressive transition into Fall. I only made it to the major switchback after the Mt...

Possibly the last fine day of summer, trails were dry and fast, though the blackberry bushes are starting to close in on some trails. Construction closure signs are posted at all the trail entrances, to be closed after September 26th.

I brought my 11yo son and 7yo daughter for a ride through the tunnel yesterday. We had ample lighting (a must, because it is DARK in there), but not ample attire; I insisted they have jackets, but it was even chillier than I expected.  Gloves...

Technically not a "ride" report, as this was a work party with Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust (on an even date, no less), but we certainly got in some good time on the trail for the first few miles below Dingford.  The trail is in great sh...

Mt. Rainier from Mt. Washington

Open to Mt. Washington?

09 | 12 | '17

I rode as far as the Mt. Washington trail and did not see a closure sign.  Does this mean it's open?  It's fantastic.  The Olallie trail is my new favorite ride.  I ditched my bike partway up the Mt. Washington trail and hiked...
