Due to rain on June 6th this ride was postponed. The weather forecast for Sunday June 13th calls for sun and 80F - but I'm not holding my breath.
The road to Ape Canyon Trailhead is now open! It's time to ride up at the Mountain! To celebrate we're going to do an out and back ride on the Smith Creek Trail. We don't know what conditions await us since this will be the first ride of the season up there.
We'll combine some work and play on this ride. I'll be bringing some loppers, brush saws and a few other tools on this trip. If you have loppers or brush saw bring them too!
We meet at the Powell Blvd Park and Ride - on the Max Green Line located on 3618 Southeast 92nd Avenue (at the stop light turn east!). This Park and Ride provides a slightly easier on/off the freeway than the Gateway Park and Ride). Be at the Park and Ride so we can LEAVE by 08:00. Those wanting to meet at the Ape Canyon trailhead should be there by 10A. Parking permits are required at Ape Canyon and Lava Canyon parking lots; those can be obtained in Cougar at the Lone Fir Resort. Please advise if interested in attending!
