    Smile One of my favorite rides close to home

    With gas prices so high I've been staying close to home, this little gem is only 22 miles from home.

    I love riding my single speed along this beautiful single track.

    We often see huge salmon.

    We found this neat hole in the rock. We like to swim and cool off here in the summer.

    There has been a lot of retoration work going on. Lots of log bridges have been repaired and most of the huge blow downs are cut out.

    It's a good work out on a single speed, lot's of short steep climb. The creek is so nice to ride along the whole way.

    Half way up the trail is a little cave to check out. It's a nice place to get out of the rain or
    sun.

    This little bridge burned in the recent fire, they build nice bridges in these parts.

    There are plenty of vacant houses (condemned meth labs) real close by if you're interested.

    I haven't been out there in some time Lef-T. Looks like those were taken earlier in the year? I'll have to go check out the new bridge work.

    Karly and I had a really hard time on the upper section with blow down.

    This summer they cut it all out and rebuilt a bunch of wiped out bridges.

    I was up there in August when I saw the salmon. The north bank trail sections are super greasy now. We rode it when it was greasy in late Oct. The burned section is nice and dry.

    One fun trial that used to drop into this creek is totally nuked and may not be ridable for years. I hiked it by accident and it was totally obliterated for 2 miles in the middle section.

    I ride with her rarely, she's always busy dancing. She just bought a house in sringtukey. I love riding with her, she's always smiling.

    Shane works on sunday, my day off. We haven't done a ride in a coons age. Lately I've been riding with my co-workers.

    I ride in the thruston hills a lot. Dot drops me off in the mountains on occation.

    I think I'll be riding north fork soon, I'll stop in and say hey again.

    near eugene Or.

    There are many trails like this in these parts. I'm still amazed at the beauty after living in a very dry area for 49 years.

    Holy Moly!

    I just came across this thread!

    That looks unbelievably nice. Just perfect. Sort of a wet-ish paradise. 22 miles from there? Consider yourself very lucky.

    Thanks for the pictures!

    eric.
