Last report was the 5100 (easier ALT Route) is open, but not the main WABDR route.

Tree still down on road?

I was able to slide my F8GS under by myself with a little work. I dropped down to Eagle Creek Road from there and then back home to the WetSide. Other than the snowbank north a Chumstick and a couple small drifts, the route was dry.





Six of us are hoping to ride south to north next week. Wondering if the tree down is still blocking the road as we have a couple of bigger bikes coming along.

That's only an hour hand saw job on each side of the log. Ha ha. I'm probably headed up that way Sunday. If I make it I'll update. Bring a folding handsaw anyways. Should be part of any ADV riders kit. Enjoy

Anyone ridden that Devils Backbone trail? It looks intense...
On your 450? Better get that fork fixed. It's super rough with some tight-ass switchbacks. The trail won't be maintained this early. Last year I spent hours cutting my way to only go a little ways. Trail crew does an awesome job when they get to it. Call Scott down at the entiat dist and see I he knows the trail crew schedule.

Pretty sure section 1 is still snowed in. Even FS-25 is closed due to snow.

Nice! I'm headed to Hood River on Friday. Did you take FR23 too? I heard it's still snowed in at Baby Shoe Pass? Thanks for the update.

i was up to 6000+ in the Loup Loup area this last weekend. Snow is disappearing fast. Dust is the word in the lower elevations. I haven't checked the Chelan/Methow Sawtooth divide yet. Maybe next weekend.
Gettin' close...
