I think everyone realizes that people who enjoy mountain biking also enjoy hiking and wilderness. The Harvey Manning Way was necessary in its time, but things are different now.

Very well said. Couldn't agree more. up.gif  up.gif

Yes, and it is no secret that Manning tried to skewer him and called him a traitor for working with other users of the land.  The battle played out partially in old Signpost magazines.

I mentioned the ugly innards of outdoor advocacy in another thread. The Manning/Spring debacle is a prime example.

Yet Manning accomplished a lot for us. There were (and still are) equally curmudgeony curmudgeons and jerks in industry and other user groups that, if given what they want(ed), we may very well be without some really cool stuff.

I like reasonable collaboration much better, though.

Hikers to this day, still benefit from the Spring Family Foundation.

Nice!  The interstate 90 corridor is turning into quite a nice mtb destination.  I need to check out the newish olallie mtb trail too.

And I hear theres a long range plan to connect the SVT to the rattlesnake region trails south of North Bend and then ultimately to Tiger?  That would rock.

H'mm I recently did a ride from Duvall to Snoqualmie Falls on the SVT and then to Preston with only a couple of miles of road riding, most of it on a wide sidewalk from the falls up to the Casino.  It would have been a short bit of road riding from the Casino to the Rattlesnake MTB trails.

I don't know about the status of MTB trails to connect Rattlesnake to Tiger, but that would be quite awesome.

Have you checked out the North Mtn bike trails in Darrington?

I wonder how it will interact with the Issy 100?

H'mm it does look like an adventurous type could use the ISSY 100 route to connect the two trail systems -- at least if you are willing to ride a 1.5 mile stretch of HWY-18 and/or ford the Raging River under the powerlines.

Wow -- that ISSY 100 route looks impressive

For what it's worth, there's great gravel road riding up there too.  The views!!  Plus the steeper hills will get your heart beating...

up.gif  up.gif  up.gif for Evergreen.  They have done wonderful trail work around here, that hikers too can enjoy.  And now Travis, of the Central WA Chapter,  one of the buds I always bump into at Mission, was just elected to the Wenatchee City Council.  He's a great advocate of outdoor recreation.

Ok, gotta bring this up.  E-bikes?

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities

I assume e-bikes would not be allowed as they are mostly for the uphill and that is what the lifts are for. No lifts no revenue. Could also be a traffic problem with bikes heading up a downhill trail. My experience is based on Whistler and Sun Peaks riding.

OK, I'm a bit confused. The caltopo route shows it going up Little Si and up Mt. Tenerife. Riding up the last little bit of Little Si would be a feat indeed and I believe that the Tenerife trail is no longer open to MTBs - AFAIK (I usually take Kamikaze when I hike it so have not personally verified this).
