Rode the loop in a clockwise direction (i.e. north along Kachess lake then south on the trail). A couple of snow-slide banks in the pass then smooth going down the trail. Lots of snow melt water in the upper meadows which is probably responsible f...

Almost dry & snow-free

07 | 10 | '18

We rode OAB up the trail. We found two short sections of snow that should soon be gone. Heard there's some more in the hike-a-bike you do after the road climb. Got wet feet in one or two of the creek crossings, and the trail is muddy in one of the...

Had a great ride at Kachess Ridge yesterday.  The climb was tough but it can be done within an hour or two.  The view at the top is great reward.  Trail is in good shape with two or three small snow fields on the way to the saddle,...

After the Fire Fix

07 | 08 | '18

The Norse Peak Fire of 2017 has burned about half of this route.

Right now the trail is running good.  Downed trees have all been cut, trail holes have been filled and rebuilt where needed.

The Corral Pass Road is still gated(...

Downhill riders on the ridge trail need to stay in control. 20 feet from trail start, two guys came around the corner. One guy saw & barely avoided me. The other fell trying to stop. I want to ride this, but it is really hard to rate the risk of o...

Trail in good shape

07 | 05 | '18

Shuttled a car to just below the first road crossing, since the upper-most gate was locked. Peddled up the last section of road, enjoyed the view, then rode the Suntop trail. Some of the tight switchbacks were a little dusty and loose, but overall...

Afternoon Ride

07 | 05 | '18

Great afternoon ride. It was 93 degrees down in Chelan but about 85 at Echo Ridge. First time riding here and it was great. Trails were all in good condition and clear. Definitly dry in places and needed to keep distance from the rider in front. U...

Oh that hurt

My son and I rode from the Devil's Gulch trail head up to Upper Mission. Road was good, except a couple spots low where the creek continues to wash out the road different way every year, but it's pretty easy to pass.

The road from Devil's...

East Side Ride

07 | 02 | '18

Lots of loose rocks, some sandy/dusty spots but in good biking condition considering that it's open to motos. No trees down.

I still can't get anywhere close to being able to ride that scree field.  So if you are merely a mortal expec...

Update on potholes

05 | 06 | '18

Just past the new Olallie Trialhead, there was a fill that Chicago / Milwaukie put in get the small valley a creek flows down, up to the railroad grade.  They used timbers to create a structure, like coffer dams, that helped to keep the steep...

Still snow up top

07 | 01 | '18

Rode this as an out-and-back from the lower trailhead. I turned around at the meadow just below the saddle on the south side. Lots of snow as you can see from the photo. From that point down, there were just a couple of patches of snow. Otherwise,...

Went out to the Lake Sylvia trails for the first time today. Rode north up the Brownie Trail, to Sylvia Ridge, then headed west to the Jungle Trail - until the recent clearcut demolished the trail. It was just at the point where it would have been...

Drought & Wind

Rad day at Xan!  No water anywhere though, and trails are bone dry and breaking up in the cruxes.  Overall though, this trail is built so well that it’s still riding great, and will be self-healing with a little 🌧

Slippery When Wet

06 | 27 | '18

Only had time for the abridged standard: ML, QL, ETS, OTG, FR, JR, NWT.  Found a surprising number of puddles on the ascent, and even more from the top down. Where the water wasn’t pooling, trail tread was mostly 👍🏼. However, with the regular...

Temps in the 70's and sunny -- perfect weather.  Did the loop and sidetrip on the GPX download from the Navigation page - totaled out to about 20 miles and 2,300+ vertical.  If you haven't ever ridden there expect some good climbs, some...

Like other posts have decried, this trail is really over grown and that is no exaggeration ! The last mile and a half mile was impassable. It’s sad that this trail has been neglected for several years.

It is super beautiful and is an aweso...

Rocky road

Did the short ride today, out and around to the logging road for the finish back to the parking spot.  Trail very rough, many rocks on trail, some of them too large to ride over.  Portions of the trail were very overgrow, difficult to de...

A yearly thing

I usually ride this at least once every year.  This year I am a little late but I wanted to wait for the creeks to be done with the Spring thaw flow.  Tired of getting wet feet at the first or second creek crossing.  Today all the c...

With the huge clear cut in the middle, it’s true that much of the old standard is gone. However, some great forest singletrack remains, especially around the perimeter. Many of these trails aren’t getting too much use lately, and are taking on a m...

Tick Warning

Trails were great. Rosie Boa was a bit dusty. Did 2 loops: Rosie Boa and Fruend. Beware ticks as 2 out of us 5 riders got them.

Overall, this trail is indeed as challenging as advertised but the lower and upper sections are like two sisters who you just wonder how they could be from the same family. The lower section is a beautiful masterpiece of thoughtful trail building....
