    Devil's Gulch and/or Mission Ridge trails...

    One of my favorites is to start at Sand Creek and ride Redhill over to the Devil's Gulch TH and up Mission Creek Rd. After the closure the road is basically a single track now. Ride down Devil's Gulch and Red Devil trails back to Sand Creek. About 27 miles of single track with about 20 descending. Just over 40 miles car to car. Roughly 5500' of climbing and descent.

You could easily spend a couple days riding in the Sage Hils/Horse Lake and #2 Canyon complex trails. Mostly "flow" trails, narrow single track, very narrow in spots on steep side hills. It's fun and challenging in it's own way.
    To add a little bit: Squilchuck is an easy quick loop of flow trails. Generally squilchuck holds pretty well without getting too dusty and is shaded at a higher elevation. If you are looking for a quick alpine loop the upper mission ridge to upper devils gulch loop from upper devils gulch is a pretty nice 8 mile loop or add in devils spur OB for extra length.

    Hope to again in the Fall.

    That’s a really tight schedule to sneak in a lush green ride, especially going 89 to 97. NUT isn’t exactly right along the way, as it will take some time to get from 97 to where the NUT starts off 138 - and the lush parts are well west of Diamond Lake.

    The trails out of Klamath Lake or Bend will be much shorter detours but much less green. There is a cool mellow XC Loop about 40 miles west of Klamath Lake called Brown Mountain Loop that mixes lava flows and forests, but not lush by Oregon standards.

    It won’t be as lush as the NUT, but doing an out and back ride at Waldo Lake is pretty wonderful - mossy Doug firs and Waldo is just about as clear as Tahoe. North side is busy and easy riding, west side is punchy rooty rocky, south and east sides are in between. Starting at Shadow Bay (south), and slathering yourself with bug spray and doing an out and back to the West side is a great ride. Waldo is maybe 30 miles west of 97?

    Winthrop area is worth a look.

    The loam trails in the greater Bham area have been treated very well by the constant refresh of moisture.

Sad that the top-bottom flow is interrupted now, but grateful that most of the trails lay within the no-harvest stream buffer and wont get clearcut.

    Good to see Alger is completely wiped out!


    Rode Ape Canyon/Plains of Abraham today, so many riders out there, but fun as always.
    Colorado seems like a sweet place except for the people that go there because it seems like a sweet place making it no longer a sweet place...

    Thanks!

    Done Ollalie yet? Sounds right up your alley and nice easy drive. It's an out-and-back, but a damn good one. High speed roller coaster.


    First bham trip for me this weekend. I was mostly meh on Galbraith. I'm not good enough to clear the big jump lines there, and I found a lot of the other trails to not be all that interesting, though I'm sure it improves as you get to know the place more. Chuckanut, on the other hand, was pretty sweet. Nice forest with views of the sound and Baker, and a good mix of tech and DH trails.

    Wonderland, Keystone, Kaiser, Cheech n Chong, U Line, Atomic Dog, and some other random xc stuff near the bottom. Cheech and Atomic Dog were pretty rad.

    Yeah.. Das Autobon to Irish death to Atomic dog or Lair of the bear... pump track over unemployment line always. Uline is way over rated.

    I guess the new jump trail mohawk is all rollable and pretty fun but I haven't rode it yet, it feeds into Mullet, which I don't like much but they are working on it and that feeds to cheech and chongs...

    Scorpian and Evolution are both fun from the top...

    Next time hit me up, I ride galby practically every day. The only really fun xc trail imo is whoopsie whoodle..

    The staircase goes! Moto angels have done their trail clearing and there is minimal snow above Cooney lake, significantly less than this time last year. Parking lot was basically full on Fri/Sat since they've taped off the campground portion of it, but saw less than 10 people on the loop.

    Rode devil's gulch today, climbed the road route from the lower th. First time there, so no baseline, but it seemed to be in great shape.

    Nice. I did the Martin Creek to Foggy Dew ride last week and had a blast. Good to hear the whole loop is open.

    Thanks for the beta. Will do a bit of research!

    What good peeps.

    I had a friend visiting from out of town and give him the Tiger sampler tour. The brown pow was just so on point - insane shredding!! It was worth having to race back to the car and bro almost missing his flight.

    Probably more helpful to describe it as the eastside of 410.

    Sun Top is unaffected by the fire though and would meet his requirements. There's a longer section of uphill trail there when the road portion ends. but the down hill is really good. in someways better than the other side of the valley I think. Add on Skookum to the end of it and you have a damn good ride. well worth the drive.

    It's a 12 hour drive from Truckee to the Gorge, so it really depends how long of a ride you want and how far off-route you are willing to drive for green scenery.

    The Klamath Falls trails are right on your route and you can make them as short of a ride as you want ... Spence Mountain will be a bit off route, and then Brown Mountain about 40 miles off route.
    https://www.mtbproject.com/directory.../klamath-falls

    North Umpqua Trail, especially west of Lemolo Falls, is as green and lush as it gets but I think it's gonna be about an hour drive each way out and back from highway 97 unless you do the trail sections high up in the river basin, you might be able to get to those trail heads closer to 30-40 minutes.

    If you can swing the Waldo Lake detour on Highway 58, I would advocate for that, because the lake is so damn pure and you get mossy old growth in there. But that's also gonna be like 40 minutes extra driving out and back each way from 97.

    Family meetup outside Redmond, OR this weekend. Trails were not wet--but surprisingly tacky considering the sand content.

    Pavement was not as tacky. Skin grows back, I guess. One of these years I'll dedicate another day and get to Oakridge instead of misusing knobby tires.
