Rode all of Noble Knob going north on June 21st, 2018. Because of the Norse Peak fire in the late summer of 2017 there is extensive damage to the forests and trails in this area. Although the southern portion is rideable as noted in another report the trail surface has sustained significant damage. Because of the complete destruction of plant growth in some sections, erosion is going to be a big issue for at least a couple years. That said the southern portion is still very beautiful and a gem of the northwest. The northern portion after the Dalles Ridge trail intersection is in good condition initially but again affected by the fire farther north. Dozens of trees are down but ground surface is in better condition. Unfortunately I think the north end is far less frequently travelled so likely won't get much work done soon. If someone sees that it's cleared please let me know!
Pour one out for one of the best descents in Washington, it's pretty much destroyed. Thousands of trees, looks like the St Helens blast zone in the upper section. Trail bench is also gone in most places and the dirt is moon dust. "Trail" difficult to find and non-existent in places. Likely a full trail rebuild if at all and I imagine it would have to wait for some vegetation to grow back and stabilize the soil a bit. The last mile or so of the trail to the White River intersection is actually rideable with just some of the trail bench starting to collapse from the side.
