I've got to say I'm really glad I found this trail area on trailforks. In spite of the complaints about horse poop, I decided to give this easily accessed little network just down the road from Tiger Mountain a go. A fun NW XC/trail ride spot is what it is. Plenty of good , not too technical, grunts to climb and fun, buffed, mellow, downhill rewards await. Scenic typical NW forest trails with roots and rocks and a few bridges and stream crossings. If you're hoping to fire up the adrenal glands with drops and jumps and fast downhill, head to Tiger - you won't find those features here. With all that said, here's the bad news: you won't see many other MTB'ers here. Why? Well, horse poop. Quite a lot of it. And with the poop comes the horses and with the horses, the riders. Even though I befriended Andrea, a warm and helpful horseback rider, I got a strong sense from others that bikes are unwanted here. I even heard one in a group of riders say "what?! A bicycle is out here?!" In fact, I saw only one other biker back at the parking lot and he had the same experience. It appears that neither Evergreen or any other bike advocates do any work here and the trails are mainly maintained (aka fertilized) by a horseback riders assoc. and it shows. The horses take their toll on the trail, especially when wet and muddy. So, if you are looking for a beautiful NW ride with hoof-broken trails, road apples, and a healthy dose of disdain, have at it. But my advice is to leave this place to the horses and their riders and head elsewhere and hopefully they'll return the favor.
