    The PRT to Metolius-Windigo connector...

    ... looks like it's almost complete!

    I rode the rudimentary trail yesterday, up until it's forward progress point. It's very close to conclusion. It is lots of fun!

    It will be great to head straight from the PRT, across Three Creeks Road, down to the MW (and Whychus Creek), without pedaling miles up the paved road itself.

    Kudos to the Sisters Trail Alliance for getting this done so rapidly

    Not sure if it'll be completed all the way through to MW by then.

    From the far end of the PRT, you follow the signpost to "Three Creeks Road". When you hit the road, you'll see a couple of dirt forest roads across the street, blocked off by boulders (to keep motor vehicles out). The "road" on the far left, with a white sign nailed to a tree reading "The PRT is incomplete. It does not go all the way through", is where you want to head. Right now, it is only about 1.5 miles long (guessing). It's not really meant to be a ride in itself; it's just a connector to the MW (although it's kinda fun).

    There is a fire up in that area. It might be closed off. Pole Creek Fire is up to 1500 acres on the last report

    does this connect with the Black Butte area? I was biking around trying to find a trail and came upon the Black Butte-Sisters connection. Worth riding? Is there a map of any of this around?

    No connection to the Black Butte area.

    The Sisters Trail Alliance is a great resource of local trails.

    Here's their trails (with maps) page

    M-W trail runs right by Black Butte Ranch and Black Butte. Other trails in the area cross it. Lots of connections.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Of course the M/W runs by Black Butte. I was referring to the brand spankin' new connector.

    And yard was asking about trails in the BB area, and M-W is one of them.

    Well, PRT connector to M-W which goes by BB = yes, it does connect, even if it is a fairly long distance.

    And "this" could be interpreted as M-W trail as well as the PRT connector.
