Trail Reports

  • Peter Parker October 15, 2018 at 3:49 pmRode this on Saturday morning. Trail was in perfect conditions from Edison up to TT intersection. Even had some frost on the track in the trees. Great fall time riding.
  • Ryan Pedersen May 7, 2018 at 8:59 pmDeadfall 100% cleared and just a couple snow patches left that are easily rideable on any size MTB tire
  • Natalie Herse May 2, 2018 at 9:20 pmI rode the entire trail from Edison to Kiwa on the fatbike today. 95% rideable with mostly hero dirt although still several patches of rideable crusty snow. The only section unrideable is the switchbacks in the woods after the summit. I tried to venture in there but lost the trail in 2-3' of snow. So instead I just backtracked and rode/(un!)controlled slid down the dirt road to bypass the switchbacks - about 200 yards. There are three trees down (2 are chainsaw size) at mile 4.7, 5.2 and 5.3. Fatbikers and adventurers go get it - all others may want to wait another week or two to let it all melt out.
  • Ryan Pedersen January 20, 2018 at 5:44 pmThere's a few challenging climbs even on a fat bike but the majority is very rideable. I recommend bypassing the switchbacks before the big lookout by taking the fire road near the opening. The snow is pretty darn deep in this section but it's sort of rideable in the descending direction. Still that big cluster of trees but there's a decent ride around.
  • Ryan Pedersen November 1, 2017 at 8:43 pmCleared the single this afternoon only the cluster remains now
  • Ryan Pedersen October 31, 2017 at 9:39 pmJeez...I meant 9incher ;)
  • Ryan Pedersen October 31, 2017 at 9:37 pmCleared 8 trees. Probably would have been 7 but got some help from Reed and Chip pushing off a real dense 9fter. A cluster of trees remains about a mile from Edison snopark that I didn't mess with (largest was around 10-12in). Shortly after that another 10in spanning the trail. Overall riding great now.
 

Trail Description

Dinah Moe Humm was created to connect the Wanoga trails (from the Kiwa and Tyler’s junction) with the Edison Lava Trail and beyond. Kent Howes was a key designer and builder on this trail and worked to get this trail designated as an Oregon Scenic Trail soon after completion. The trail is more of a XC trail compared to some of the other Wanoga trails, and has one decent climb/decent along the way with some great views of Bachelor and a bench at the summit.

This trail is maintained by Central Oregon Trail Alliance.

    Cleared 8 trees. Probably would have been 7 but got some help from Reed and Chip pushing off a real dense 9fter.

      Cleared the single this afternoon only the cluster remains now

    Perfect tacky dirt, no snow. One 8″ tree down about 3 miles up from Edison snopark just before you climb the butte to the bench.

  7. Mark DeJohn says:

    It’s clear of trees all the way through to from Edison to Kiwa. Sawed the last of the downed trees out yesterday. Go get some.

  8. Natalie Herse says:

    Out and back from Edison Snopark. My Garmin says I was able to ride/hike a bike 3 miles before turning back due to snow (at elevation 5100′). Since I’m masochistic and curious, I walked an additional 1/4 mile in hopes the snow would ease (nope). Great tread to start with intermittent and increasing snow patches starting around mile 1. Counted 7 trees down (including one that fell lengthwise) starting at mile 0.7 thru mile 2.4-ish. Worth the adventure for sure if anything to enjoy the big trees, beat the heat in town and if any of you fabulous tree-cutter-downers want to get a head start on things, here’s some info ;)

    1. Joe Myers says:

      Cleared those trees today. Thanks for reporting!

  9. Patrecia Hedges says:

    Same tree still down. Otherwise good!

  10. Joel Blatt says:

    As Ryan stated 10 days ago, there is still one significant (requiring chainsaw) fallen tree – it is located about 1 mile up from Sno-Edison past the intersection where many snowmobile trails intersect. Otherwise, entire trail is riding well.

  11. Ryan Pedersen says:

    Riding great. 1 tree down ~.5 miles from Edison Butte Sno Park

  12. Natalie Herse says:

    Perfect tread. No snow or mud.

  13. Kahai Wodehouse says:

    Dusty but still good!

  14. Joel Blatt says:

    Thank you – no deadfall – riding well.

  15. Joe Myers says:

    Kent was out yesterday cutting deadfall and says that there are 6-8tough cuts left on the North side of bull butte on the decent. Other than that riding well.

    1. Kent Howes says:

      on Sunday Morning 6/12, combined efforts with Jade, Rick and Johnny to cut out the last of the trees on the north side descent of Bowl Butte. It should be good to go.

  16. Jay Marsh says:

    From Kiwa, only a few trees down and overhanging until you reach Rd830 (pretty nice), but after that completely blocked by blow down.

  17. CJ Myrick says:

    Anyone with recent eyes on DMH with latest conditions? TIA

    1. Joe Myers says:

      Al send me a message and said there are “tons of trees down” as of today.

      1. CJ Myrick says:

        Well that stinks. Hmm… changing route plans then. Thanks!
