    Looks like fun. Lots of full facers & big bikes in your photos.

    I've been riding off-road in Oregon since '85 yet have never ridden Syncline. Gotta get up thataway one of these days, I guess.

    Syncline's one of those places that lets all the diff riders types mingle.

    It's a couple miles from my house; let me know, I'll show you the back way. Don't ride there much, kind of crowded. We rarely ride with more than 4-5 people.

    I like to ride there in the fall and spring, summer is way to hot and to much poison oak for me. The only place that seems to be crowded, is the parking lot at Courtney Rd, once you're on the trails, I only see a few people.

    Sparticus, Take one of these guys up on the tour guide offer before they close down some of the trails, it'd be worth a trip up for you at least once a year.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    Just rode some of this for the first time today and wow, what a great ride! I needed a decent winter locale and this fits the bill nicely. Thanks for the heads up. I pretty much ride alone so I won't add to the crowds too much. Oh, and I know most of you who made the Turkey Burn are from Oregon but technically, this is a WA spot

    Five miles from where those guys in the photo are standing you'd need a GPS (or a local) so you won't get lost. Of course you have to ride your bike the whole way.

    I only do that twice a year; max - and all those people are my friends. And they are very well behaved.

    That would be a shame. Riding your bike on a bike ride.

    Actually, it's enjoyable and quite entertaining.

    The Syncline is bad right now, unless you can catch it early after a cold night. The freeze/thaw frost cycle make for some sticky mud. Coyote Cliffs and Hospital Hill trails in the trees are excellent, though.
