    Some other trails you should put on your radar are Cutthroat Pass and Angels Staircase. CP is 11 miles and ~3k and a very popular hiking trail but if you can get up there on off hours it's quite nice. AS is a much longer day, 25 miles and ~5k gain with hike a bike. If it's pretty hot that may feel like a death march so take that one with a grain of salt.
    Thanks so much, I will ping you for trail info for sure. We are staying with friends from the avalanche world outside Winthrop, so will leave the bikes there. I remember climbing Cutthroat Spire back in my guide days- cool route and long day.

    In terms of Kettle Crest info, is there a bike shop in Republic (the internet doesn't think so...)? Who would have best info for that zone?

    Looking forward to a road trip and new trails!

    Yep…. I think it’s just there way to get you to buy their wheels. I told Kevin the back ends too damn wide already and I don’t want to rub my ankles even more with super boost.

    Dirt in the PNWet

    Bike shop in Republic. That’s funny. Go to Stonerose, or pick up a dog at Forget Me Not Shelter.
    Well maybe I'm the faggot America

    There is a highway cam at Sherman Pass

    You can also search the hiking site WTA for recent TRs in the area. Or go back and read previous years TRs to see when the snow melts out in the area (snow free by mid June last year but blow downs on the trail)

    Or call the local ranger district and see if they have an update

    Yeah once #2 gets fully built out i think it's gonna be awesome.
    They need to fix the road though. Just pave it dammit and expand the parking too.
    Leaving a car at the bottom of Sage at Fifth St or lower Horselake parking makes for a really nice day coming from #2.
    Or drive to the upper Horselake parking and ride up over Twin Peaks but only part way down into the #2 trails and then ride back over twin peaks and back to the car.

    Is anywhere in the greater PNW/BC region not completely dry/blown out right now? This early fall weather is amazing, but also dusty.

    The road has been graded recently and fresh gravel laid down too. It doesn’t need paving and there’s plenty of parking. If you’re complaining about the road and parking, maybe go ride the Loop trail. The mountain up there is Horse Lake Mt not Twin Peaks. Read a map.

    That fresh gravel is already a mess and they still haven’t installed the new vault that necessitated the work. I bet 300 cars and trucks will go up and down that road today. There were 10 cars at the pad and maybe 25 at the gate when I finished my ride this morning.

    It needs to be paved because people don’t know how to slow down and preserve the road. I was up there last week and 4 side by sides can ripping and roosting through the hairpin. Nearly smoked a dog. I’d support paving to fuck with those assholes alone.

    The road would be fine if it wasn’t a half assed attempt. Gravel would be fine with enough ballast and raising the grade. People will only drive faster if the road were paved, making it more dangerous.

    The planned upper lot, vault toilet and picnic area is unnecessary and an eyesore. Maybe put just the toilet in.

    The whole project up there is kinda stupid except for the trails. The meadow isn’t a meadow no matter how hard they try. It was cleared by the previous owner for a hayfield, there’s still a hay rake near the top of the “meadow”. The pondos want to grow there, why clear them out? I also want to know who decided to mow the grass along “Community Property”? Totally unnecessary and detracts from the natural state.

    The real problem is the local “outdoor” and tourist organizations pimping the trails. Too much use. That said, only three cars at the th Wednesday.

    This I can agree with. Put in a picnic area at squilchuk, if you must.

    It’s already there. Talk about dirt sidewalks.

    The pimping of good riding will never stop.

    Lower Tiger Mt doable right now?
    More importantly, how about Duthie?
    Since getting back into mt biking a few years ago after almost a decade away, ive been feeling stymied by otherwise totally doable trails in my area with biggish drops and gaps. Thinking of doing a full day or two at Duthie.
    But it's a long drive from the Wenatchee valley.
    Ive got a few extra days off next week was thinking of getting a motel room in that general area. Cheap motel Recommendations?

    Ok bro

    I'd also say that parking at that upper pad is kinda silly. Better to leave that gate shut seeing as that several hundred yard section is pretty rough.
    I've got no problems with the current parking though.

    However, that road is fucked. I mean it's not a regular forest service road that can handle normal 2wd use. Even if it got graded out real nice, graveled and buffed. It's too steep. It'd just get rutted all out again and all the basalt chunder would re-emerge. It'll only get worse with increasing popularity. Paving would solve all that. Leaving it gravel would necessitate regrading every year. Cheaper inthe long run to just pave it. I'm sure you've got some oldschool elitist local-type reason why access should stay difficult. We would all love to hear it.
    Ooh and Horselake/Twin Peaks is very commonly referred to either way in the local parlance. But you knew that and decided to be a twat about it.
    And WTF with the salty attitude?

    All of tiger is doable right now but that could change soon, looks like some colder storms are headed our way.
    Duthie was running great today but some of the freeride trails are closed for maintenance. Definitely gravy train and paramount are closed, and I think big tree was too.
