Did the full Grand Ridge out-and-back starting at Duthie this afternoon. The trail is almost entirely dry (maybe 2-3 spots with enough mud to leave a tire mark). Big thanks to whoever has done trail work there recently: there are new drainage ditc...

Got a quick ride in this afternoon and was really amazed that the initial climb to the main road was still coated in an inch or two of packed, warm, snow. Had to hike 50 feet but traction where it was well melted was fine. The record snow has flat...

Rode up the climbing road past the Jerry Springer trail to Pink Ribbon and Pink Beaver which are now clear cut.  Understand that Small Fries and lower Tokyo Drift also slated to go as well.  Since logging is currently underway advise sta...

There is no snow on the trails, however it's there at the trailheads. I decided not to ride too fast because the ground was still pretty hard

Tried to see if I could see the falls with all the snow melt going on but could only make it a little farther than the trail/road intersection elbow about 2/3 of a mile short. Snow has weighted down a lot of saplings over the trail making many obs...

Went out for a late night single loop on the East side of the tracks. Cleared a couple trees dropped on the track access road by the heavy snow and then came down the Boeing side of the Gulch and back to the car. I lost the front brake before the...

Entire park is still covered with a few inches of snow. Riding any trails as of today is near impossible unless a day or plus bike is used with low enough tire pressure. 

Parking lots are closed as of today, unless you are within walk...

As previously noted, the trails are great and the Falls are beautiful. Did the Falls first and then Escorlator, Elevator, Little Ridge, and then Funner and Cyclops under lights. It was a great evening and the only thing this area is needing is a w...

Bob has been giving these trails some much needed love and it really shows. Overall improvements in drainage and surface work are awesome. These trails are in the best shape we've ever seen. Clean, glorious, hero dirt right now. The access roads a...

Had a great time summiting and coming down and going up to do EBAD for the first time. Excellent trail for challenges when wet and soupy due to the roots and the steep grade in spots. Doing Cherry Valley tomorrow PM if interested. Pvt msg me tonig...

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. ...

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...
