Rode Hansen Ridge solo today. Pretty exposed but nice cool breeze kept it comfortable. Rode out clockwise onto lollipop and then into phase 2 until a bear told me to go back (near beginning of the double track, where single track goes back into fores...

Did the ride out to the lake, starting in a clockwise direction (so up the road to Seattle water gate and onto single track from there) on what turned out to be a very hot day.  I'd say it was a good thing the lake was there and it was the perfe...

Great day in the Gulch. Took the fire road up past the Devils Gulch Trail to Mission Ridge Trail. Temps were in the 90's so a bit of a grunt on the way up. But trail was in great shape all the way down. Rivers were all passable and rideable except fo...

Trail was in great condition.  Only saw 3 other bikers.  Recent rains made trail nice and buff.

First time on this trail or in this area for that matter. My trooper of a wife dropped me off at the intersection of NF-9712 and Mission Ridge Rd. Due to my poor planning I was not aware she could have driven up 9712 to the trail head! Worse, I passe...

I just road at Duthie Hill today, it never stops being so enjoyable! I had only been a few times before and have been able to progress every time. Really nice to ride in the sun.

This trail is virtually snow-free and all the blowdown has been cleared.  Gate at the bottom of Corral Pass Rd is still locked so you gotta earn it.

The two trail segments listed below are now open. Some signing still needs to be installed but these sections are open. These segments are now broken in due to the recent rains and use during the Echo 30/60 mountain bike race on 5/31/15. Berms are pr...

Had a great loop on Buck. Trail's dry, except for a couple lingering springs just passed the Deer Country sign. The last final steep descent on singletrack is getting a little dusty and blown out from sliding tires, but super fun still.

My wife and our two dogs and I set out to ride this trail as a first bikepacking adventure.  We were excited about the river crossings, not disuaded by them.  The first mile or so of the trail is beautiful, rolling single-track.  Afte...

We rode up NF-7100 road from parking area.  All creeks on the ascent up the road are crossable with rocks/logs in place to avoid having to ford through the water.  On the ride down Devil’s Gulch trail, we encountered quite a few small pudd...

Rode here today with my 11 year old.  The views are fantastic for much of the ride.  Perfect for taking your time with a trail snack.  Our route was to climb the road to the next gate and then head onto the trail.  We rode the tra...

We parked at De Roux TH, rode up the road to the Esmerelda Basin trail and did the loop CCW. Trail is in really good shape, except for about 10 blowdowns in the last two miles of trail. I assume this warm year has opened this trail up way ahead of sc...

It wasn’t the best day for sightseeing on Hansen Ridge but the cool damp weather was perfect for a twenty mile out to the lake and back ride. Because of the fog, I didn’t add the extra spur along the high point, or ride up to Mt Gardner. That’s a rid...

First of all, thanks for posting this ride and the GPS info. It's always fun to have some new rides off the beaten path. Though this ride is never technical, the climb is challenging at times and rocketing down the twisty fire road on the descent was...

Roads to trail head were in good shape. After the ride, I drove down to checkout Iron Bear and Miller Peak trailheads, and the road was good all the way. Maybe 10 trees down across the trail. Streams are low. Heard lots of birds chirping. Squirrels...
