Went on a short family ride (4 year old lost it about 30 minutes in), but the trails were nice - the fog made it less dusty than they have been recently, so it was nice and tacky and full of grip.

Since the last report the recent rains have restored a lot of the trails and compacted the dusty conditions. Most trails were in great shape today with the exception of a few sandy spots on Ticket to Ride (Long Route). There is a large downed tree ly...

Figured most trails were going to be muddy and slippery so I started on the gravel bike at 6am in Darrington and planned the Gold Mountain loop using FS road 24 and included summiting, and visiting the lone radio tower and weather station just above...

This was my first time on this trail and it won't be the last. Started the ride at 11 AM after a short rain shower. Weather was supposed to improve and it did.  A few cars at the trail head but it turns out they were all going for the Beckler's...

A massive landslide has taken out the trail where it continues E from Bessemer Road. It is impassible even on foot.

Since my last report Aug 25th at Raging River several things have happened. I played with the new flow at East Japanese Gulch and bent my ring finger way back (ring will never come off now!). I also lost my rear shifter that same ride. However, today...

We arrived at the Rattlesnake Lake parking late in the day. It was Panther's (2020 SantaCruz Megatower carbon CS) first bite of the trail and my second time to ride here. She was awesome and I felt more capable on this trail vs the last time with my...

Rode up Masterlink - awesome scenery and time of year. We rode down Predator. All I can say is Too Soon. I need some progression trails to work up to it. It's an awesome trail but completely different from what I've ridden at raging river, Duthie. So...

One of my favorite rides in the area. The climb is manageable, downhill is flowy. I bring a small water bottle and refill at the top using my water filter. The water tastes great and is nice and cool after a long climb. The folks in the area are co...

Had a wonderful early morning ride to go do a little climb and come down Physical Therapy before visiting the parents for a bunch of maintenance work they needed me to do. The trail is a great rooty challenge and a drop sent me over once but I got lu...

First time up to North Mountain and I'm thoroughly impressed! We only had time for one run - parked at the lower shuttle lot, drove up to the upper and went down Skyline. What a beauty of a trail - serious kudos to the builders! It was absolutely thr...

So we picked literally the hottest day of the year to do the CCDH/Raging Tiger loop. It's a grunt on the way up. CCDH is eroding a bit, lots of brown powder and alternate routes and offshoots being carved out of the hillside. There's a bomb crater fr...

I've been riding here for a long time and absolutely love this place. Current conditions are dry and a lot of the trails are starting to break down more than usual (possibly due to heavier-than-normal use for COVID this season). The East Wing is in d...

Great time to ride - the 6.2 mile logging road from US2 to the trailhead is annoying but definitely worth it.   The wildflowers are out like fireworks.  The bench at the west end of the alpine meadow is a great place for a picnic and didn'...

I headed back to Duthie to learn how to jump gaps. First I walked Gravy Train, and then started hitting jumps and adding another 2-3 with every descent. They get bigger further down the trail, and by 10:00 AM I'd sent them all except the last (bigges...

Left the trailhead at 7am in a misty rain and 1/4 mile visibility. There wasn't going to be any awesome views today, just a wet ride. The dirt was well drained. The last report said the avalanche debris field was ridable but there must have been anot...

Thanks to JJ for leading me on three laps of Lower Predator this afternoon! By my third lap I sent all the features, there are some tricky drops and tech sections including a right hand switchback with a large drop right in the middle. Great trail an...

I rode the new Canyon Creek DH this morning, and Raging Tiger back up. CCDH is long with rooty technical gnar, some steep powdery switchbacks and a bermy flowy final section down to the river. I'd call this a blue plus or black minus, maybe dark blue...

Met up with fellow Evergreen rider tomvale and did the Raging Lollipop. We just missed the opening of the new CCDH and Raging Tiger so will have to go back for that. Great morning on the trail, that lollipop is always a challenge for me! Poppin Tops...

Wanted to get a good baseline performance run on my gravel bike, over multiple terrain styles, before I order and install my Fox 32AX fork to mitigate the handlebar shock of the rooty, or rough, terrain I ride with the gravel bike. I decided to start...
