    The lower elevation trails are good to ride if you hit them while frozen.

    Deshutes River Trail just N of Sun River:

    wondering if TW / Funner would be rideable tomorrow... probably not. Normal tires. Horse ridge is probably going to be the pick.

    A buddy and I plan on coming to hit a couple trails, probably Phil's and/or Shevlin, on Thurs and Fri. Anyone been up there lately?

    Weather forecast is dry for Thurs-Weekend. However, with the amount of rain we received, it will be wet. Also expect it to be really frozen. Cold temps in the forecast.

    Still soggy on the westside anyone know? East side is nice, but was thinking about hitting up one last run in the Phils area in a couple hours.

    Just out hiking on COD and aside from maybe a puddle here and there the dirt is stellar!

    I might be driving over there from Portland for riding this weekend. Unless there is new snow, would the prospect of riding lower Phils, like up to post 18 or so be possible? Or should I plan to check out Horse Ridge. Never been over there. Assume it is fun... Thanks!

    I was coming over to go riding too, but I'm afraid of the snow dropped too far down. It did on the west side.

    Anyone have a snow report? Thanks!

    Also, where to ride if Phil's is snowed in? Swamp Wells?

    Yes, Swamp Wells. Or Horse Ridge. Or Maston

    Yeah what DF said.

    Snow report is there is a trace of new snow from last night in the phil's area. Potentially still rideable but better to go east.

    @JPDX - Horse ridge is actually a really cool ride. Climbing, descending, technical, views. It's one of the better trails around if you like this sort of thing. the negatives for us locals are it's 20 minutes away or more, and some people don't like technical. It's quite technical in sections. Also negative is you have to climb over some barb wire fencing. We are too spoiled around here.

    Peterson Ridge in Sisters is damn near perfect!

    I was out there today, and did not see another soul, other than a few deer. The far end of the trail has a few soupy sections, due to melting permafrost, but it's not bad at all.

    I'm getting better at clearing Eagle Rock Pass all the time. Only had one short section of tough uphill switchback requiring a dismount, and one small dab. Not too shabby!

    Get out there while you can. Preferably on a sunny day! The contrast of the Three Sisters painted white, and the pure green of the trees below Peterson Ridge, is sublime.

    Rode Phil's to rd 300, over to Ben's (exit whoops) down Ben's to Voodoo cross-over, down Phils/Kent's to finish. Voodoo cross-over was kinda sucky, but everything else was awesome. I made the only bike tracks above Voodoo. Then I had to go warm up @ 10 Barrel with a cold beer. Love their Pray for Snow (prayer answered).

    We're renting a house for the weekend in Bend, and tomorrow I hope to head out early and go ride Horse Ridge. Then hopefully Phil's on Sat. Maybe I'll see you there! If you see a brown Trek Fuel with white rims say hi!

    Be sure to check out Peterson Ridge, or Horse Butte, as well. You may not get far riding the Phil's triangle, although you can do multiple laps on what is clear.
