Welcome to the Meany Lodge Bike Trip Page
Riding on FR 54
The Meany lodge bike trip weekend will be held inconjunction with the hiking weekend on July
2013. What better way to come and see the lodge then by Mountain bike.
We will again meet at the lodge with our cars, guests can arrive on Friday night will have some time to do
some riding around the trails nearby. Saturday morning around 9am we will again ride down to the John Wayne
trail and along Lake Keechelus to the tunnel, those who wish to can ride through and down the other side
several more miles for some spectacular sights before turning around and riding back to the lodge in the
afternoon. We will again have an outdoor fire and BBQ, refreshments and activities. You may even be able
to schedule a massage for that evening. Sunday is open to more riding or an early start back to the city,
we will plan to close the lodge up around noon but feel free to stay and ride the trails.
The main ride will be on compact gravel roads all the way, fat tire mountain bikes and cross bikes
are very suitable for this ride as are trailers for kids. There are also trails near the lodge
where suspension bikes could be useful and advanced skills required, lots of terrain for all skill
levels. The ride to the tunnel is about 8 miles each way, the tunnel is 2.3 miles long so bright
bike lights and warm jackets are required for those that wish to go through and back. Riding
further down the other side will take more time, though it is very similar terrain there is lot
more to see, a few historic trestles and many more vistas on the west side.
