Ape Canyon-Smith Creek Epic, Sunday 7/27

July 27, 2014

Carpool to leave Velo Cult at 8am.

This ride is for strong and fit riders looking to challenge their endurance.

Many riders forego this option in favor of simply riding out and back on the Ape Canyon Trail beyond the Plains of Abraham.  Some may adventure all the way out to Windy Pass for the views into Spirit Lake, accepting the grueling fate of hiking back up the "stairs."

The Smith Creek loop may miss out on the fun and zippy descent down Ape Canyon, but will get more than a fair share of advenure on this primitive trail. It covers a lot of dynamic terrain with a glimpse into the volcano's past. It is remote and offers unique challenges for the hardy mountain biker.

Mt St Helens Coldwater Lake work event and campout

To celebrate National Trails Day, we will be out in force at Coldwater Lake on the north side of Mount St. Helens on Saturday, June 7th.

Last year’s work party drew only 75 volunteers. We are aiming for 100 this time, so get your name on the list and start browbeating your friends. NO DOGS AT THIS EVENT.

To say the project is a large one is a sizable understatement. The scope includes work on a 12-mile loop comprised of the 211, 230, and 230A. Last year, we also hit about a mile of the 230A from the back of Coldwater Lake toward St. Helens Lake. Depending on the number of volunteers and the snow conditions, we are hoping to do more in this area.

Last year’s epic end-of-the-day party will be hard to beat, but we will do our best.
