The majority of the trails are rideable and in decent condition. That being said, there are some defencies to note:

  • Several obstacles by the lake view entrance are overgrown
  • The first berm on Sidewinder has fallen down the...

The lower section of KGB during the rebuild
04 | 01 | '15

No, this isn't an April Fools joke - KGB has been reopened.  The trail starts at the pump track and is clear the entire way.  We are still working away at upgrading and rebuilding sections of the trail, but it's fully rideable.  Jus...

The bluff always dries out pretty quickly. Conditions are excellent. Newer trails are shaping up well. It's an interesting combination of just a few muddy spots and some occasional loose dry stuff out on the open slopes. A great place for practici...

Trails in great shape.

Had a chance for a short ride out on the trails. The open ascent on the east side of the creek is pretty well dried out. Just a couple of muddy spots. The descent on the single track through the trees and ravine had a bit more mud and some little...

Escalator, Funner, Cyclops, YGD, Sick and Twisted, No Road and Black Label all clear.  Trails are in great shape, especially the first 4, which are near perfect.

First off, I originally followed directions to the Google Maps pin on the Navigation page. This takes you to the 'Lower' section of Cowiche Canyon. Not a bad ride down the old rail trail, but there are many walkers in this area as it is flat and a...

First ride of the year and first time on this trail.  Probably bit off more than I should have for a first ride but had a great time.  Only encountered one patch of snow that was no more than 3' across.  Quite a bit of mud on the la...

I took the road up to E Tiger Summit trail and then road that to the summit, then back down to OTG, Fully Rigid, Joyride and NWT.

OTG had some areas that were really abused, they were soft/muddy from the rain overnight and it looks like lo...

The Butte is riding pretty well right now. The light rains have kept most of the trail surface in great shape.

We took advantage of a small break in the weather and got in a nice dry ride. Parking area at the trailhead (3300ft) was snow free, and we didnt encounter snow until we hit around 3800ft. At the peak (4100) there was maybe 2" of wet snow, but noth...

Just a short session today on VooDoo Child, HLC and Gravy Trail - all of which are in great shape!  HLC is flowing very nicely, though the run-in to Happy Ending has been baptized by brake bumps.  The rebuilt section of Gravy is so smoot...

I live just thirty minutes away and had never ridden here. The trail surfaces were great and there is quite a network of them packed into this relatively small area. Looks like some areas are off limits to bikes and horses but there is still...

While riding up Northway last July we decided to explore the beginning of Old Northway which we had read about here and from another report. We followed the beginning of the "trail" for a few minutes and found it to be the faintest goat path imagi...

Rode most of the park today, and found the conditions to be stellar!  About 90% dry to tacky, and less than 10% soft but not runny spots.  Very good conditions, prime riding now.

A very busy day at Paradise but one of the great things about this place is you really don't run into too many people out on the trails once you get out on them. Nice, sunny, dry and warm. All trails in great condition. Rode Cascara to the mainlin...

Escalator, Cyclops, YGD and Black Label, and No Road are 100% awesome.

Sick and Twisted is at about 95% - a few soft spots (play-doh consistency) and 1 14" blowdown.

Fairly dry conditions on the western side of the gulch, patches of mud but more like June than March.

Other than a blowdown at the Preston end of Silent Swamp and some wetness on Joy Ridge everything is great.

Elevator is 100% clear and in prime shape.

Escorlator is about 95% - there is one big tree still across the trail, and in the vicinity a lot of raking would be helpful.

Funner is 100%.

YGD has 1 small (8") flow-buster acros...

My basic advice for this ride is go with someone who knows the route.  There are a lot a places where you can make a wrong turn once you get to the Horse Pasture Hill and Redmond Watershed section  I will have to wait until a Thursday ni...

Rode to the fire road and back.  Trails were 95% rideable.  Some old compact snow in spots < 6" deep.  Light dusting that should be melted by the end of the weekend.  Other than that great shape!
