Nothing on the COTA site since last fall nor here that I can see for a while. Nobody riding it now that Giardia is gone? Assuming it's in full early summer glory and the weather is keeping it nice but not muddy. Recent info? Thanks in advance! :thumbsup:

You're coming down here soon and want to ride out there?

No Giardia isn't gone, they just drove a D9 Cat down a "sensitive Riparian area" so it's "different".

I'd recommend Ochoco's or other forest rides. Getting hot out at Grey / Smith, but whatever's your passion!

Enjoy.

Hmmm, thread shift.

Are Round and Lookout logged out and snow free? Or, at least just mildly snowed in with minor blow down? Options are good.

Just really like the Skull Hollow CG CCW loop with the out and back option for an easy day and something different. Up/down Burma on a hot day once before. That was enough. Not even fun going down.

BTW: Thanks for the info for Megan...we're gonna make her a core trail advocate sooner or later.

Round and Lookout are not logged out AFAIK. A COTA crew is going up there this coming week to check it out, but I do know it is pretty much snow free. Probably some big logs in the usual places, in big tangled up piles... Can't say for sure just guessing...

Megan?

Thanks, I'll ask the others. No snow is good but blow down after blow down on day 4 can be rough.
The gal from Cle Elum. Hopefully it will someday be the new micro Bend. (Already enough Californians there though I guess.)

Oh THAT Megan. I get a lot of mail that way. I hope the brief response I sent her helped out.

Really the secret is years of collaborating with land managers and proving the group's dedication to trail work by keeping track of volunteer hours and providing volunteer training. Focus on Stewardship. Build it and ... you get the idea.

It can be a mixed blessing, however.
