Lewis River Trail - mtb ride

Lewis River Falls

This event is the best way to hit two of my favorite trail in one day. Goal is to ride Lewis River as a out and back and finish with a shuttle on Falls Creek. Two separate rides combined into one day is not for the unprepared. So pull out your maps and check it out and see if you are up for the adventure.

More details as we get closer to the event.

Group ride will be led by Dennis V and Ted D

Price: $0.00

Success! Wow...

Great ride, strong group, good trail conditions.  

Rode to the third falls as an out & back. 

Weather could have been better/warmer, no real rain, trail was wet, couple down trees, couple smaller bridges need to be replaced. Could use a big NWTA work party to really get this trail in shape again. But still very rideable. 

Lewis River Trail is one of my top 10 trails.

Ride it if you get a chance. 

 

Also it looks like Fall Creek trail is open. Didn't ride it.  Site observation from Old Man Pass only. 

Just rode Falls Creek on

Just rode Falls Creek on Sunday and it wasn't too bad. Snow patches for about a mile or two before and right after the horse camp. Dooo it! 

Lewis River ride update

 

Based on recent trail reports from fellow mtb riders, it sounds like the upper section of Falls Creek is still closed due to snow.  Being that Dennis and I are not up for a hike-a-bike exploratory adventure after riding the Lewis River Trail, we have altered our ride plan. We are now planning to only ride Lewis River Trail.  Which is a worthy accomplishment by itself.

The ride will be an out and back.  And from my memory it is about 36miles if you choose to ride the whole thing (i.e. to the third falls).   But as an out and back you can turn around any time you want…

Being that it is an out and back ride the skill level has been reduced from Gonzo to Intermediate / Advanced

The plan is to divide up into smaller groups by fitness & skill level if needed.

Recent Lewis River Trail report is that it is open, but there are a couple down trees. 

Weather looks ok
