 The most eerie, surreal, majestic rides I’ve ever done. Must ride if you’re in the area. Ride beautiful singletrack through the forest of Ape Canyon with viewpoints of Mt. St. Helens and then BAM! You’re on the moon! Trees snapped like matchsticks, but beautiful wildflowers line parts of the trail. Epic is an appropriate word.
