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...

TKE was once my favorite local riding spot, but the logging and the use-pass turned me away for a few seasons.  I decided it was time for me to dediscover TKE, so joined a few friends for an evening spin on some of the old standards and a few...

CCC Extension Sign

Submitting this a few days late but hoping this report can help someone grab this trail later this week before the rain comes in again. We started at the CCC Extension so can't comment on the main CCC trail. The tread was in excellent shape with j...

I live 1 mile from here, and ride this in a pinch when pressed for time, and need to burn off some steam.  LOTS of bulldozing, grading, and pre-housing-development activities, so most of the trails are hammered.  I clear them as I ride t...

Beautiful fall colors - the vine maple is amazing right now, and the views of the Stuart range were breathtaking.

I had hoped the recent rains would have made hero dirt, but no such luck. It was over 80F today, and there was no moisture an...

The trail is well-signed and easy to follow. There were some cows in spots along the climb but they didn't impact the trail. The ride reaches a highpoint after a double-track climb and is followed by a series of short climbs and descents before th...

Signage is up and seems to be staying up so far. Some locals not happy about letting the word out.

All the upper trails are in great shape and draining well. Lower trails like Sick and Twisted, No Road, and Black Label are getting the last...

I went out here with my 4 and 5 year olds just to hit the bottom parts of the single track and it was just covered in horse poop.  Wow, I love the signs in the parking lot that say something like "pack everything out".  I guess everythin...

Outstanding fall conditions; no mud pits/bogs/puddles anywhere, just a few soft "bruises" in places.  Rode fast fender-free and came back spotless.  Beautiful colors and pretty popular on a Sunday afternoon.  Two thumbs up.

Rode the first half of the Adventure Trail (10 miles in-10 miles out).  Trail is in great shape.  Technically - beginner but grunt factor of intermediate. There is lots of elevation gained and lost but all rideable and fun. The part I ro...
