    Lava - Edison is open

    But "extremely" dry and dusty. Groups should spread out for visibility...

    Reportedly fewer logs than most years but the crew made it to the top and cleared all of the Lava side. Someone had already cleared on the Edison side so the whole trail is good to go.

    Thanks, Paul & Kai!

    Great news!

    Too bad I'll not be on a bike ride for three weeks (vacation time).

    It'll be brutal by the time I head up there.

    Thanks, all.

    Thanks for the report. I went to ride there a few years back, after hearing reports about all the trails in the area that were clear. I drove over (from Eugene) and started from Lava Lake, and, after 10+ blowdowns in the first 1/4 mile, I turned around and left. Drove back over to Manley's and had a beer and watched most of the Ducks/Oklahoma football game. When I saw the Ducks were going to lose, I split and rode Oldenburg, Summit Lake and a few trails in that area. Any Duck fans remember the result of that game?

    Wow this trail is in great shape. Dust is minimal, but lava babyheads are rampant. I'd forgotten how much this trail kicks your @ss - interesting and tough climbs, a few new log-overs, a couple of 'stunts', rarely a smooth surface, constantly up and down and twisting back and forth - love it.
