We did a pre ride yesterday and providing we don’t get an offer we can’t refuse we can do the Reiter Foothills ride on 8/4. Will ride to a waterfall lunch destination. Ride length 7-8 miles. 10:30 ride out time.Bring a Snack and chair to share back at trailhead with history of project. Go to 429th Ave SE Gold Bar WA off May Creek Road. Continue to the end of the road. The trailhead is small so park accordingly. Bring loppers or pruners so we can continue to improve the trails.

The only response(s) I received was either I can’t go, but would like to or silence… So, If you were planning to go, you should still do so and camp at either Teanaway campground or Indian Camp. There is a work party at the Teanaway campground that you could join. I know a couple people attending. I might too at this point.
Find details for the work party at the following link:

From East Wenatchee on Hwy 28 west of Quincy near mile post 25 (just past the rest area) go south (right turn) on White Trail Road (also known as Rd U NW.) go about 5 miles to the entrance to the Quincy Lakes area on the right. Rd U NW turns into Rd 5 NW. Look for the entrance on your right to the Quincy Lakes area.
From Vantage on I-90 take Hwy 281 (about halfway between Quincy And George) turn west on White Trail Road (also known as Road 5) at Colockum Ridge Golf Course to the entrance to the Quincy Lakes area on the left side of the road. When entering the Quincy Lakes area, it is about 2 miles to the end of Burke Lake.
Look for the TD signs for our camping area.
We will either be located:
A) directly across from Burke Lake. As you are driving south past Quincy Lake on your left, continue until you see another lake on your left (Burke Lake) and a concrete outhouse on your right, there is camping near the outhouse.
B) Continue driving past Burke Lake, look for a road to the left, just before the reservoir. There is a larger area to camp.
Our first choice is location B, next to the Evergreen Reservoir. Second choice is location A, at Burke Lake.
Discover Pass required!
Our New Year’s day ride was postponed due to the Equine virus scare. We rescheduled it to this coming weekend. By the time I contacted the Pilchuck Treefarm, they had already scheduled another group to use the lunch stop on Saturday
Sooooo……our New Year’s day ride will be this coming Sunday, 2/4. Both gates will be unlocked by 9am so you can enter from whichever side is most convenient. Please close the gate after you enter. There will be no designated ride leader. If you don’t know your way around, please ask any of our members if you can tag along with their group.
There will be a potluck starting at 1 pm.
We are going to postpone the New Year’s Day Ride. If you haven’t heard, there is an Equine Herpes outbreak going on currently. This is a highly contagious disease and frequently deadly and is easily transmitted by humans and equine.
For safety sake it is best we not meet with our equine partners until later. We will send a message out later about the new date.
Look on the bright side, we all get to sleep in New Year’s day.
Christmas party is December 15, Trails End Tap House & Restaurant in Snohomish – 6:00 cocktail hour – dinner at 7:00
We are amazed to say that out Christmas Party is completely full. We apologize to those who we are not able to accommodate.
Our past history showed that we haven’t exceeded over 38 guest for the last several years.
With that info I was worried about meeting a minimum requirement of 50 people.
You folks amazingly filled that requirement immediately. But, unfortunately we still have folks wanting to attend. The facilities has can not accommodate any additional guests. We are maxed. With that said, I have a few folks on a waiting list, should you not be able to attend, please let me know asap, so I may give your seats to folks on the waiting list. I know they would greatly appreciate it.
We are already searching for a larger facility for next year.
Tis the season of giving.

The ride schedule says we are going to ride at the top of Stevens pass this weekend. According to the weather forecast it is suppose to rain and/or snow on Saturday at Stevens pass. That doesn’t sound like a good plan. I am relocating the ride to the Teanaway. There is only a slight chance of rain in that forecast. We will camp at the Teanaway campground. This is across the street from the fire station. The campground and surrounding areas are outside of the fire restricted area. The fall colors should be beautiful. You will need your Discover Pass. 11am ride out Saturday morning. Potluck dinner Saturday night.
Please RSVP to Beth Ferris ASAP.
