Had a nice cool, misty, morning with the goal of running the rock drop down Canyon Creek Downhill. While climbing up Upward Mobility, a hiking couple was coming down and telling me they left a beer at the top for me. I chuckled and said, "Excellent"...

Compared to other blue trails that I have ridden Skyline is steep and fairly technical.  But there is a lot of potential for alternative routes to be developed.

Just got out before the morning "chill" was gone and did two laps on the east side of the tracks. Nothing of particular note this time except for great hero traction and plenty of shade during the descent. Come visit the new developments when it is c...

Went out early just after sunrise to get a cooler ride in before the record heatwave hits. Did the Springboards, Meetcutter and River trails and came back up. The river shoreline is still underwater and the approach area is overgrown so help as you c...

So welcome to pretty much the capitol of mountain biking in the US, where the parking lots are 50% full on a Tuesday at 8:00 AM!  I rode up UM 1, 2 and 3 and headed down Upper and Lower PT and Flow State. Weather was perfect, but these trails ar...

While spending the weekend here to visit dad, I took off early to climb the Butte and descend most of the trail.  It has quite a bit of rock in the trail now causing a much more cautious speed to avoid a major fail. The brakes were hot but the r...

In my quest to keep you updated on snowlines, I ventured to Olallie to get back up to the summit of Mt. Washington. I began the climb just before 7am and no rain. The trail was hero, and the views were pretty and under overcast skies. I caught a bear...

Rode the ocean bluff trails (Mike-O-Rama and Groot), then all the stacked-loop trails, lapping Sub Canyon at least a half dozen times. Added up over 16 miles. All the trails were in mint condition! Sub Cayon is the black diamond flow trail, featuring...

I rode from the parking lot Wednesday up UM, over RR, on to the towers, down CCDH, back up on Raging Tiger, and then back to the parking lot via lower Poppin' Tops and Flow State.  It was a long ride for me about 4 hours in total with the only s...

Lot was about half full, even at 7:45 AM which is why I usually avoid the weekends. Rode Master Link, Quick Link and the fire road to the East Tiger Summit trail entrance (pictured). Evergreen was rebuilding ETS, the large right hand switchback berm...

Had a great, early morning, ride doing two loops on the eastside of the tracks today. I went down Boyz to Men and then back up to do Mukraker and noticed several other places getting a lot of great trail attention. If you haven't been here in a while...

I saw a newer technical trail called Outer Limits on Trailforks and decided to try that for the first time this morning. I climbed Waterbars Up, and then went over to Burnt Cedar to do that trail "out and back" and then down Outer Limits. It is a lit...

It's still a little early to make it up to the meadow with the snow pack we have right now so I parked down at the powerlines off of highway 2 and proceeded up to the Jennifer Dunn Trailhead. That way I could still get some vertical in before I'm sti...
