Mt. Adams Country Bike Tour – June 29, 2019

The southern slopes of Mt. Adams in June are a bicyclist’s paradise with good roads, exceptional weather, cool temps, easy to challenging rides and unequaled vistas against the glorious snow clad backdrop of magnificent Mt Adams. The Mt. Adams Country Bicycle Tour is the perfect way to enjoy and explore this spectacular sun-drenched area and awesome views with your fellow riders in the fresh mountain air.

The Annual Mt. Adams Country Bike Tour (MACBT) just gets better every year. You can choose from the 11.5 mile Family Fun Ride (Trout Lake Valley), the 51 Mile Loop through Trout Lake, BZ Corner, Glenwood, and back, the 54 Mile Forest Loop (up and down the flanks of Mt Adams) and the combined 105 Mile Infinity Ride (51 + 54 mile loops). Each well-marked ride takes you on quiet country roads through some of the most beautiful countryside around

The rides are fully safety-supported with sag wagons, emergency teams, radio coverage, snacks/rest stops, optional box lunch and post-ride meals. And we’ve lowered the price on the Family Fun Ride so more families can afford to participate, and added more options for meals and T-shirts.

Trout Lake PCT Hospitality

Trout Lake continues to provide warm hospitality to chilled and tired Pacific Crest Trail hikers – see the blog from The Ravens family that hiked through late this summer and received some extra special help. Read the The Ravens Family blog

“We have passed through many small towns on our hike and we are always so impressed with the generosity and kindness the residents of the towns have towards the dirty hikers that pass though. Trout Lake is one of those towns….

Family Handbook for Trout Lake Emergencies Available

FAMILY HANDBOOK FOR TROUT LAKE VALLEY EMERGENCIES:  TLCC has set out to develop a family handbook specific to hazards in the Trout Lake Valley.  We would appreciate input from the community.  We would also appreciate your photos or graphics that might improve the look of the handbook.  Please direct comments, suggestions, photos or graphics to trwebster_pe@embarqmail.com.   Please comment by June 15, 2018.

Click to review DRAFT v.1.6.6 of the Family Handbook for Trout Lake Valley Emergencies.  Be patient in downloading this pdf as it is fairly large.  This version is for computers and tablets.  See below for cell phone version.

Cell Phone Version (PDF).  This version fits the small screens by narrowing the PDF page.  We know that process makes the formatting a little strange, but it’s all there except that FireWise appendix is nearly useless.  We will fix these flaws in the final version.
