    When you're in the parking lot at Pine, go out to the sidewalk where the hot dog vender is. Ride the street bridge over the creek and then turn right into the trail. You'll find double track ( and illegal single track if you stay down near the creek) that takes you to under Veree. Go under Veree and continue. There is some decent single track up high (it's easy to miss if you're unfamiliar. If you're low down by the creek, you've missed it) that'll take you to a gravel road that goes out to Krewstown. You'll have to cross Krewstown to continue. I haven't ridden the single track on the East side of Krewstown on the North side of the creek in years, but it use to be there.

    Keep exploring! Try going down trails that are unfamiliar. Eventually you won't need a map.

    I got over to the north side using the bridge just past bustleton. I didn't have enough time but there are some crazy trails over there. Some big boulders I wasn't expecting. I think I pretty much have the trails from pine to bustleton on the south side down. working on the northside. Between bustleton and krewstown was a lot bigger then I expected and trail conditions and downed trees made it tough to follow

    Nice. I didn't go to the north side last time, I just wanted to get a solid ride on the trails I knew in and that mission was accomplished. I am most likely going back out there Thursday after work. Not sure If I'll venture over to the north side or not. When I did it last time I got pretty mixed up and ran into some downed trees that were an issue.

    I rode bustleton to krewstown on the north side. I still haven't seen anything on the north side from krewstown up to pine.

    If you cross over from the south to the north at bustleton and ride the north side up to krewstown is there a trail that goes under krewstown rd or do you have to go up to the street and then drop back down onto the trails?

    Cool I'd be interested to see that. So are you saying if you park in the lot on pine road (which is on the south side if i'm thinking correctly) there is a bridge that crosses over the creek there?

    Thanks man. So it looks like you use Pine Rd itself to cross over to the north side. Might have to check that out next time I go

    Any trail updates? Planning on going this afternoon. I know there has been some spotty rain but I'm guessing it should be ok?

    The trails at the Playground area are in very bad shape. Very large trees down throughout. I had to dismount very frequently and trek thru thick brush for a go around. It will need a committed team with some serious power equipment several weeks to get these trails in good shape again.

    Yes. East Side of Veree and South side of creek. Happens to be my favorite spot to ride.

    The pp trail advocates are aware of it and could use help if anyone lives in the area and has some free time.
