I parked at the trailhead around 6:30 in the morning and started up the road to discover the current progress of the summit meadow traverse. The views were a little hazy, but take away the smoke, and the views are beautiful! The upper half of the...

One of the rocky sections

Parked at the beginning of CCC extension, and rode it to the Middle Fork campground and back. That section is in primo condition.

Then we rode up the CCC proper towards North Bend to the first forest road crossing. The trail is a jungle wi...

Great ride! No bugs. Lots of tourists walking down the southern side of the loop, none on the northway side of the loop.

Very fun trail, glad we decided to check it out. We stopped by the bike shop in town before the ride, Roslyn Rides, and the staff there gave us a cool alternative climbing route to the top of Rat Pac. First we headed north out of town, rode a coup...

Instead of starting the ride from the Salmon La Sac campground, we parked on the far end of Cooper lake, and first rode out to the Pete Lake trail.  Pete lake trail was a lot of fun, although we passed many hikers on a Saturday. Next time I w...

Norse Peak fire completely destroyed this trail from Noble Knob trail all the way to within 1/2-1 mile of the White River Junction.  Trail bench is gone in most places and everything is scorched earth.

Getting there:

Take the ferry from the Seattle Fauntleroy Terminal to Southworth. Get off the ferry at Southworth. Don’t drive onto the ferry; instead, walk your bikes on with all your gear. This will only cost you $7.45.  It‘s only a...

All trails are dry, as expected. Dusty and loose in a few spots, but less than expected and overall fast and fun.  Much cooler on the climb and summit than expected, as well. Sampled some of the new material, and I must say, job well done to...

As part of Kettle Fest 2018, a large group of us rode the recently re-opened Upper and Lower Taylor Ridge trails. Read more

Rode upon a large black bear on the way down after crossing the RR3 to RR2 trail. It was right on the side of the trail about 20' from where I came upon it. Ran away as soon as it heard me. A bit too close for me, so adreneline was pumping!

My first time up the Raging River trail heading up the brushy area with corners, hugging the right side of the trail as much as possible. A teenager was blazing down full speed in his full on body armor and full face helmet. Saw me the last split...

Sunny day = Great views

Did the CCW loop. Starting to get dusty in the ski area.  This is an unusual ride because you are mostly by yourself on the entire climb and then hit the summit house and the gondola crowd is there. Nothing wrong with that - just be ready for...

The area is trashed again. About three tent campers in the trails, trash piles, busted glass, who knows what else lurking under sticks and leafs.  Was so sketchy we decided it's not worth the risk.

The trail is snow free and very dry.  The 5 mile road to trail conversion is very rough but rideable except for a couple of downed trees.  Three of the stream crossings are allready partially washed out, though still ridable.  Use c...

Rode this for the first time today, a hot day on the east side.  Started from south trailhead and the Loop Trail and Winston Highway were in good shape. Bugs out in force but it was cool in the shade.  Rode to the northwest and missed No...

Did the White River —> Corral Pass —> Noble Knob —> Dalles Ridge —> Palisades loop. Was motivated by Jack’s prior report, which I can’t add much to.  This whole route is clear with exception of two step overs, recent and unrelated...

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...

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,...

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...
