PNW mountain biking

I'm moving away from the PNW soon, and want to get one more MTB ride done on my list. I haven't yet done:

Sureyor's Ridge
Devil's Gluch, WA
Timberline to Town

Can anyone help me narrow down my choice??

I haven't ridden those other trails, but thoroughly enjoyed Surveyor's Ridge.

I haven't done any of those trails. But I can tell you that if you're attracted to Devil's Gulch because of the views of craggy and snowcapped mountains in the background, almost all of the snow has melted from that area, they'll be craggy but bare.

There are some fantastic rides a bit further, in the Methow Valley.

Devils Gulch is a great ride if you want to make the drive. More information here:

I recommend climbing up the trail and not the road. If you want a full day, climb up the Devils Gulch trail and continue up the road to the Upper Mission trail and then descend the Mission trail back to your car.
