That's the best time to ride it. That way you can ignore all the rocks and just go. =]

Yep; leaves + rocks = good time!  Just wondering if there are any trees down that would make it extra fun.  Looks like I might be going there next Friday.

A bunch of us are headed up Thursday for a "Fall Color Tour". You're welcome to join us, or come Friday and see if we did an adequate job sweeping the trail  :ride:

We just rode Evarts for the first time last weekend and we loved it. Great mix of terrain.

Some short sections of bad whoops but overall - Great!!!! Can't wait to go back.

That's what I wanted to hear...  Sometimes the whoops leading either way from the trail head can suck...  I ended up going to White Cloud due to time constraints...  Surprisingly the trail was in good condition...

Evart is a beautiful trail.  I rode it for the first time this year and I'm glad I waited until I had a few years of expereince before trying it.

 

I like that most of it is under a nice canopy, however the areas where it's been clear cut show what happens to nice trails after the loggers get to it.  I plan on putting on my trail list for at least 3 times next year.

I've wondered what is most people's preference for riding Evart, clockwise or counter-clockwise?  I've only ridden it clockwise and thought it was pretty good that way.  There is a pretty big whoop section at the beginning if you start at the parking lot and go counter-clockwise. I hate starting a trail with a bunch of whoops, I'd rather just save them until the end and roll them after I'm tired out.  I always feel like I've accomplished something when I finish that trail.  Even let out some big "wooo hooo's" after getting bounced around making it up to the top of those steep, rocky, root laden hills there!
