Had a good ride today to upper pop n top and down. Trails are in great shape overall, and are fast and flowy. If you like to know trail surface condition on your ride, a few usual sections have rock peeking through, or heavy braking bumps. Upper p...

Still the typical awesome PNW cross country trails up there.  Big clear cut where The Burn was.  New trail rising from the ashes, Phoenix, which is long and fun like The Burn used to be. Almost no blow down after volunteers cleared the t...

Did three runs down the east side of the RR tracks early this morning, first one under lights. The trails had a little greasy mud in spots but were in good shape. There was only one wind damaged spot on a less traveled trail halfway up the east si...

Rode Ollalie for the first time on Sunday. Incredible weather for January. Blue skies in the mid 50's and no rain for the previous few days meant perfect trail conditions. A couple small patches of snow but the trail is clear all the way up. ...

Started early again on the Connector, then Masterlink, Quick Link and the top of East Summit. Then came down the Summit road to Predator for a nice ride down all the way back to the parking lot. Looked down at my handlebars and the iphone was gone...

Great way to start off 2019. The only snow/ice was on the last bit of fire road off of Master Link. Trail was in good condition with just a few puddles.

Relative to other Evergreen-supported trails, not many people ride Moss Lake. But it’s a great area with a small, dedicated group of unsanctioned folks who work hard to quietly maintain the trails (most notably is the infamous trail gnome, Bev). I...

I ride this trail frequently. The snow starts at the makeshift campground clearing and was about a 1/4 inch. The lower half is clear and is main reason why most people ride it. 

Cheers! and Merry Christmas!!!

Multiple trees down across trails in Big Finn Hill Park after the windstorm on Friday. Trees and branches are blocking trails east and west of Juanita Drive. Smaller branches were moveable with 1-2 people. Larger branches and trees will need a cha...

Took a friend to the skills park today and had a good time showing him the area. We toured the trails and then out to the Whitehorse and back. Trails had about an inch of frost but the traction otherwise was solid. I took my buddy up to the summit...

Rode upward mobility to Poppin Tops (Upper) last weekend. Trail quality was excellent for the time of year. A few muddy spots on the way up but easy to ride through or around. No snow.

Upward Mobility is a very well made climbing trail...1...

Started at the Cedar Falls trailhead and took a side trail to get to the iron horse for the 2 mile intro. I did Olallie about a year ago and my command post failed so I could not get all the way to the top comfortably. This time was different. I s...

Newest upper trail is in orange, purple is the fall line of a zig zag trail still being cut

Took the dog for a walk on this trail to see how it has matured over the last couple of years. The newest trail starting at the lookout gate is a really challenging, "black diamond" personality that will be a challenge for everyone. I just walked...

Multiple windows broken on my friend‘s Syncro between 1PM and 3PM. Due to after-market locks the f****rs couldn’t open the doors and weren't willing to mar their anterior scales by slithering into the van over the glass left behind. Post info if y...

I've been looking for more Stevens Pass rides and tried this one for the advertised views and fall colors. The trail starts with a 1/2 or 3/4 mile grunt or hike and then continues with a slightly less steep trail. It is tough to maintain a consist...

This trail was on my wish list for sometime and just got a chance to do it this week and see the fall colors.

I must say this trail was a little bit of a disappointment. Usually with an epic ride you get long climbs followed by long descen...

After learning to ride on Galbraith in the 90's, I've finally found a home down here in the Sound. So old school - so fun. Lots of really twisty, technical trails with many many off angle roots. Not much up and down but enough to keep it interesti...
