    Hi Paul, enjoyable report on doing an out and back on Miller. I’ve pondered this too, as I agree with your assessment of the south side. We rode the loop going clockwise in late May two years back and we hiked in a lot of snow at the top, though 90% was ridable. In the end, it was the drop down Iron from the peak that is the good part, so why not just go up and back that way. Thanks for testing it. And yes, there is better on offer after the snow melts, but anything in the high Teanaway is a pleasure in early June, I’d say.

    Thanks Cary, one of my favorite WA rides is west fork Teanaway, although I do it from the Salmon le Sac side in a monster epic with no out and back. Haven’t been up there in recent years, it was getting quite hammered last time I rode it, but it’s on the list this season. Hope to see you out on the trails…you leading any of your GO BIG ones this year?

    Hi Paul,
    I just rode the West Fork Teanaway last July with a small BBTC (er…EMBA) group, starting from the Salmon la Sac side. Usually I ride up the FS road too, but we had multiple cars and I was outvoted, so we shuttled to the top. First time I’ve ever shuttled – honest. Still a demanding ride. I hadn’t been there in about 8 years. It was in good shape, considering it’s a bit primitive to start with. Motorcycling Rangers had just cleared the trail, so it was free and clear.

    I haven’t ridden as much this year. Lots of change lately that has affected my schedule. But I’m starting to ramp it up since the weather warmed. If I’m fit enough I’ll post some rides in August or September. Not sure about my usual 3-day September weekend yet.

    I’m enjoying your posts very much. Keep it up!

    Cary
