    Black Rock

    I live up in Washington and was thinking about making my way down to Black Rock to ride sometime around Dec. 20th. I was just wondering if the trails in Black Rock are still ride able and not under snow like some trails up here.

    Top is around 1900ft and basic is around 1000ft. So.. maybe? It's often rideable in winter if it's not icy or soaked.

    We have snow forecast for late next week on the valley floor, but it might not happen. Ten days is a bit far out for a precipitation forecast.

    I rode yesterday at 1000-1500ft elevations in the coast range. Packed snow up to 6in deep. Snow elevation is rising overnight. Heavy rain forecast for Tuesday. Good luck!

    Shit! I have a day off on Wednesday and was thinking about hitting BR. Guess I will have to hit Syncline instead. Thanks for the update.

    The roads are closed at all times to public vehicle traffic, so you can't self-shuttle.

    Build crews have access and they sometimes shuttle after a build day. Not always, not guaranteed, but I have seen them out shuttling on days I've been up there to ride. Both Saturday and Sunday this weekend they will be out building, actually.

    Other than that the only way to shuttle is a shuttle fundraiser. They typically do 2 days every year, it always sells out fast, and isn't always announced widely.

    Hope this helps,
