    All clear of snow

    Blow down could be an issue. I rode Knebal Springs last weekend and the trail was clear of snow but tons of blow down and recent logging forces a hike-a-bike through downed branches but not too bad or too long. I rode the road up to high prairie and just after the two mile mark hit alot of snow on the road. Cool area though, first time riding in the area.

    surveryor's is about the same altitude and location so should be good to go. Thanks for the info. Looks like the high country is finally starting to melt out.
    Nice long ride from high prarie is tr 450 down to 15 mile creek down to the bottom and back up. Or You can also start across from 8 mi creek and ride up 450 to 15 mile creek down to bottom and back.

    Which road are you talking about? The road up to high prairie is paved, and not likely to have any snow... There are several heading up the mountains from high prairie though. Dead mountain? 1931 perhaps? I grew up on high prairie, the dirt out on huckleberry flats is where I did most of my riding, but now it's full of dirtbikers. And where is knebal springs?

    Scratch that, I did some searching and found that Knebal Springs is much farther north. I thought you were talking about the Oakridge area, which has it's own "high prairie".

    Dog River and Surveyors are snow free. The Dog is in dire need of a good brushing with the bottom is really getting overgrown-watch your speed down there.
    Go here to find out about trail status in the MHNF.
