It was muddy! not a bad thing. except when you want to keep your speed on a downhill. I imagine that when the weather isnt so wet it will be a really solid trail. My father and I have to ride the last couple miles on the rode because our bikes were not happy with the mud that had caked on them. But it was a lot of fun. Something for everyone. I will say that its rated correctly at intermediate.

It was a fun ride, but way too much poison oak. Be prepared for weeks of suffering afterwards unless you are immune to poison oak.

This trail is a blast with lots of twists and turns and ups and downs. The trail is a bit rough and rutted in spots which can make it a little tricky. I was amazed at how few people I encountered for a spot so close to Portland, but I did go in the fall. Definitely a "must do" for those in Oregon or passing through.

This is one for the books. I was amazed at how many times I was suprised on this trail. It is very fast. You will be coming down a hill to a turn and boom there is a steep little climb going back up. It was sweet. Broke my chain twice on this ride. There is even a log you can ride over a creek bed if you have the Kahonies. Cheers
