Starting on Thursday, September 26, 2019, due to blowdown removal, many of the central trails on Mt. Tzouhalem will be closed for safety reasons. The area of closure is to prevent riders/hikers from ending up in work zones. Heavy equipment use and active falling will be taking place for approximately 2 weeks. During this time, there will be no access to the closure area.

This route gets as much of Double D as possible during the blowdown harvesting. You will enter Double D in the middle section and get about 1/2 of the total trail.

Is the lower section re-opened after maintenance. My friend told me that on Saturday he rode the whole trail top to bottom.

Rode the Pearl yesterday. A nice easy roller, but don't come into it too fast with wet tires. I left some fun slide marks on the fresh wood but didn't fall off.
