Trail is riding well right now and there are no reports of mud, deadfall, or snow.

Eastside is a fun, forested singletrack and the backbone of the Shafer Butter trail network. Beloved by hikers and bikers alike, Eastside offers abundant shade, a few small features for bikers (optional log rides and small jumps), and occasional encounters with wildlife, including black bears. The worst thing about Eastside is that once you reach the bottom, grinning from ear to ear, you realize you’ve got to climb out one way or another. Unless, that is, you’re lucky enough to be shuttling, in which case the fun continues on Sweet Connie.
