I encountered a cougar. It was around point #21 in the map (link). The time was around 3:30 PM. It looked a lot like female lion that I saw from zoo and it was way bigger than normal dog. It was on the trail and stairing at me from 5 meters apart.&...

Most of the trails are in great shape.  There is a bit of peanut butter on northwest pasage and north trail.  There were quite a few hikers, some quite grumpy, dog walkers and horses. So, it was a busy day, but everyone was respectful of di...

Whoever found my car keys near GR drive, and put them on a log so I could find them, I say: "Thank you so much." Amazing how well GR rides even just a day after a big storm/rain.

Had not ridden Henry's/Black Diamond since last spring, so was happy to see the trails in good shape. Not too dry and not too wet. So many trees down though. I probably had to lift the bike over 10 trees.  There was a two person crew out trying...

Snoqualmie has ignored the two bathrooms at the base of Raging River for months; claiming a shortage of "safety supplies" per the sign on the doors. I'm able to buy all the safety supplies I want, so not sure what the real reason is but I've never se...

Rode Grand Ridge north from the soccer field parking to Duthie and back.  It's about 12 miles with 2000' of climbing so a nice ride, over about two hours. Dirt is perfect, though traffic was a bit heavy due to the weekend and heavily urban locat...

Had a nice couple of runs down Lower Skyline this morning with ocassional light rain at times. The access road to the Lower Skyline trail has 5 trees over it and those will need the bigger saws. The road could use a brushcutting too if maintenance ca...

Had a wonderful excursion ride below the snowline but high enough to get my vertical in. After the rains, I wanted to see the falls and the weather forecast was good. I parked just outside the DNR gate and began the climb and then made an attempt to...

I observed three people riding Segway electric motocross motorcycles on the Mukilteo Parks side of the trails today. These were not pedal assist E-bikes but motorcycles and have a maximum speed of 47MPH. I notified the Mukilteo Parks department.

Some friends did Alpne Baldy on Monday and reported no snow at the top, so I decided to give it a shot on Friday.  Big change!  After all the rain, the streams were very heavy with at least one requiring walking the bike through.  Duri...

Rode up to the second lookout this morning.  It's a real grunt, some short steep sections and a ton of switchbacks. Nice and cool though, a bit misty. Blasted down, and great practice pre-turning to be able to carry speed through the switchbacks...

I enjoyed the mud and large puddles on Inside Passage, Joy Ride and NW Timber this morning. Really muddy and wet, chilly until you start moving but "If you're riding in the PNW you're riding in the rain." The off camber root roll about halfway down N...
