Trail Reports

  • Patrecia Hedges November 4, 2016 at 8:27 amNo mud or snow. One tree down near Swede shelter. A little rutted from runoff, but ridable.
  • Billy Geschwill October 23, 2016 at 4:36 pmA few small patches of snow, but overall in perfect condition.
  • Dustin Balderach July 29, 2016 at 4:57 pmGood stuff. a little dry.
  • Natalie Herse June 12, 2016 at 7:20 pmIt's perfect. Thank you trail fairies!
  • Jay Marsh June 9, 2016 at 11:15 pmWow, rode SST on the 8th and there was a ton of blowdown. All I could think of is how much work the volunteers have to do to clear a trail. Can't believe it's cleared in a day! You guys rock. Thanks for your dedication to the trails!!!!!
  • Joe Myers June 9, 2016 at 5:25 pmClear as of today. Thanks for all the guides at Cog for getting this open.
  • Mike Prochaska June 6, 2016 at 2:02 pmYup, same deadfall status as of 6/5, tho some stretches have been cleared (thanks!). Went out and did the 8.2mi Swede Ridge Loop with fam and returned to car from Swede Shelter via SST w/ 7yo daughter, and we had fun with the adventure. Although, dad carried both bikes over/around all the deadfall.
 

Trail Description

The S.S.T. trail runs from Swede Shelter over to The Swampy Loop and is a less frequently used route than Swede Ridge. Where the Ridge could be considered fast and flowy, S.S.T. is more of a technical grind. The reward for riding it the dense old growth — and some nice technical challenges along the way.

Before heading out, please take a minute to look at the Rules of the Trail.

    “Rode” SST from Swede to Swampy today. Lost count of how many trees are down and blocking the trail. Would guess there must be 40+. The last mile was nice – Thank You!

  7. Joe Myers says:

    Cleared about 1.25 miles in from swampy on SST today with Erika. Still lots of blowdown and don’t advise traveling on SST.

  8. Joel Blatt says:

    Don’t know S.S.T. acronym, but do know to avoid this trail; it is currently definition of “deadfall.”
