This ain't your Gramma's Sunday roll! The Cascade Cream Puff was established in 1995 to introduce mountain bike enthusiasts to some of the most pristine (and toughest) singletrack wilderness trail systems in the Pacific Northwest on the Willamette Middle Fork Ranger District, in the National Forest. The race originally featured a different course each year, highlighting what is now known as the "Alpine Trail System", extending from the rural center of Westfir-Oakridge.

      2 trees down on the downhill. One comes up real quick on a fast section of the trail. Had to grab a hand full of brakes to not hit it. Trail is riding great other than the 2 trees
      Lower Alpine Trail

      Rode it on SAturday. Top part has major puddles (6 inches deep) but still rideable if you don't mind that stuff. Very slushy and wet but the bottom half or so dried out decently. Still Epic, but have to grab a fair amount of brake.

      Rode it over Labor Day weekend. Soft, loamy dirt. Primo.
