Two trees are down aross the trail about 1.5 miles from Grand Ridge Drive. This is the first time I have ridden it in a few years so the trail is unfamiliar, but from my GPS it looks like it is  abut 1.5 from Grand Ridge Drive.  It...

Went back with my new Fiskars 13" billhook to clear out the overgrowth on Meatcutter. Over the past week a team of trail lovers had already done a bang-up job clearing the whole trail and headroom. I went on to Goldeneye and Wishbone. Trails are s...

So dry

07 | 24 | '17

HLC, VooDoo, Ryan's, and Gravy Train running sweet. But it's super dry out there. 40 days(!?) without rain, and Washington's most heavily used bike park is seeing some strain; some corners are getting super loose (HLC), making holding speed throug...

Horse Doo Doo

Rode the full outer loop for the first time this year to get in a little XC work prior to a Duthie jump sesh. Usually this is a fall/winter only fitness ride for me, so the summer flavor was quite a change.  It is DRY out there, which for me...

Slide is not so bad

07 | 24 | '17

I am mostly posting a ride report to comment on the state of the washout. I think the last report made the washout sound worse than it is. It was probably because of the direction he came from. It looks worse coming from the clockwise direction. Y...

New Flavor

First time back on Grand Ridge in a long time, since the new loop (more like a detour extension) had just opened. This was the first time I was able to include it all into the otherwise OAB from Duthie to the Grand Ridge drive crossing and back. &...

Overgrown sections!!!

07 | 03 | '17

Headed up to Hansen with the intention of riding out to the lake and back. The section of the ride described as Phase 3 road/double track was VERY overgrown with underbrush. I ended up with scratches everywhere and something that caused an itchy r...

Time to buy a machete. Meatcutter and probably Redline, both need a good wacking. The nettles and stickers have grown a bunch in the Summer. It was a great time but the front tire is having a harder time sticking to the dirt. Still a fun time and...

Kiosk's Trail Map

Spent early Sunday morning exploring the whole skills park and enjoyed every trail. The trail makers and volunteers all did a great job and signage was very well done. Easy trails west of the road and experienced trails to the east. My favorite tr...

In good shape

07 | 16 | '17

Generally in good shape. Elevator was a bit overgrown in places, wear long sleeves or let the thorns take the difficulty up a notch. Thanks to whoever took a weed wacker to Sick and Twisted, looks like that had just happened in the last day or two...

Hadn't been to this trail in at least 10 years!? (sorry to say) It remains a quintessential NW river runner. Shades of McKenzie, Middle Fork, but it is its own thing. Strikingly beautiful along the river. Near per...

Rode the McGarvey Trail out to the ridge trail this last weekend and it's overgrown with blackberries and grass. Some of the spots it was hard to see the trail. Classic mountain bike bushwacking, but a good ride. Lots of exposed roots from all the...
