    Trail Condions

    It seems that there ought to be a central location to find out about local trail conditions or perhaps there is and I am just unaware of it. I just attempted the Lower Big Quilcene trail on the Olympic Peninsula and there must have been a tree across the trail about every 100 feet. I gave up after a mile or so of ride-dismount-ride-dismount . . .

    The night before the ride I googled the trail to see if there was any info on it, but nothing came up. I suppose I should have known of course, with the weather we have had out here, but an editable trail page (like a wikipedia) that keeps the last three references to a trail would be perfect so anyone who attempts a ride can bring back the latest info. So here is the latest on Lower Big Q--bring your chainsaw, it's begging for a work party.

    that would be awesome. if you search hard you can find some bike club sites with trail conditions pages. though many of them haven't been updated in over a year, some haven't been updated since 2001. if im going to a close by trail i just go and hope its ok. if i'm going farther away what i do is go to a local shop and buy something (spare tube, trail mix bar) and passively ask what the trails are like. one of lbs's in portland has a bulletin board of a few "featured trails" with descriptions and conditions.

    The bulletin board is a good idea--could be part of an LBS website.
