From a water standpoint, there is an increasing amount of flow in the streams up here.  That's fine for the ones that are routed through drain pipes or culverts, but for the assorted others that are randomly spilling down the mountainside, th...

Flowtron was running great. Thanks for the work JVP and team! HEADS-UP -- There is a tree down near the bottom of OGDH... right after the log drop. Had to hit the brakes and duck... just knicked my camelbak going under it.

Rock Hopping

Did the "Standard" route and the extension trail. Most of the stream crossings took some rock hopping to stay dry.  New signage at the trail turn off of Bessemer Rd. makes this turn easier to find. When we got to the campground we rode out to...

Went for late morning ride on Sunday Nov 2, last rain was Friday mid-day.

  • For the most part, the higher you get, the better/drier the trail is. Preston from Bail Out up was best, much of it totally dry.
  • Bail Out was tough,...

I decided to see how the trails were after the heavy rains this week, since I've never been out past the normal Oct 15 closing.  I rode from the parking lot: NW Timber- Joyride-Silent Swamp- Preston RR, so pretty much all up hill.  With...

I'm a novice mountain bike trail rider and i have to say I had an absolute blast sticking only with Hustle and Flow, the novice trail.  The trails are very well marked for difficulty levels, and for the novice rider Hustle and Flow has severa...

Have made many rides at the Gulch over the last month.

Trails are wet and slick but still fun.

Here is a map for the general user looking for a lay of the land.

Be alert for changes and fresh work with soft dirt on the steep part of Upper Ivan.  The s-turns were rebuilt today.  Trail work will be going on in this zone all winter.

All in all, 360 has got some fun stuff for all ability levels. It's an especially attractive option if you live on the Kitsap Peninsula. The fire road loop and the non-bike-specific singletrack are OK, but the real jewel is the bikes-only trail in...

This is just an update on trails that no longer exsist because of the clear cutting at Told McDonald.  This is not a comprehensive list but reflects what I found when trying to ride my favorite loop. Most of the center section of trails betwe...

Did our first night ride of the season. Trails are super tacky right now and the new trails are riding great.

There are a number of recently constructed trails that are now open for Mountain Biking. Thanks to the Central Chapter of Evergreen, local volunteers, and the Chelan Ranger District for these new trails with more construction planned this fall and...

Rode the network again today.  Did the area just below the power station which I believe would qualify as Crop Circles.  Down TapeWorm, out and up Parasite and down SilkWorm twice.  To get to Parasite from TapeWorm, as you come out...

Did a few loops on east and mostly west side of SST.  Although a week of rain and wind would put most trails in peril, the conditions were good today.  Freeride is too much for me but looks like fun for those who spend time in the air. &...

Great ride yesterday on the Buck Mtn loop starting at Buck lake. It should be noted that there are two downed trees across the trail on the first descent section, following the large climb. Other than that, the trail is great. Watch out for grazin...

It was very cloudy today with fairly dense fog in parts at ground level, so no views until the later parts of the ride. Trail in great shape. There was standing water in some spots, as expected on an 11 mile singletrack descent this time of y...

Paradise Valley is in great shape.  Doug and I were out today working on the Lloyd trail.  We cleaned some drains, fixed a few drainage issues and closed off a couple of trail braids that have popped up over the summer.  We will be...

FLowtron is riding good again.  I brushed out the trail, and I'll be back to do more brushing with the deathstick.  Geoff and Armando did some raking and smoothing of the tread, which made a huge difference. 

We'll do more w...

First time visiting these trails but I hope to return soon. Trails are quite smooth and fast. Rode a ten mile loop from upper trailhead. Made it most of the way up the summit spur off the Outback trail but it was very rough, loose, steep and nasty...

As always, Tokul E is THE best spot for wet weather, winter riding without getting soaked.  Work parties will be posted on the Evergreen calendar this winter.

Technically this was my second time out here, but really the first time on a "real" ride.  Recent brushing + the new signage made this very approachable for a newbie, and the trail conditions were very good.  Quite a surprise at how rad...

Rode these trails for the first time Sunday.  These trails here were a twisty tight mass of rooty goodness.  Not as technical as Cuss Hollow at Duthie but still quite enjoyable. IAB is very aptly named; definitely a work out getting up.&...

First time riding Basalt Peak and it was a great (but tiring) ride.

The climbs were often and persistent.  Soil was relatively moist for tack, but there were definitely sections (particularly higher up) where loose trail and steep inc...

Rode the lower loop out Northwest Timber, with a climb to the maintenance access on Joyride and out Silent Swamp to Preston. Climbed Preston, now I remember why I haven't done that climb in 17 years, but it was still a good technical challenge. Ve...
