These trails aren't just for winter sports. I've made it here during the summer to take my mountain bike for a ride. I parked at the Sno-Park Parking lot where one would go during the winter months. Here you have a couple of dirt roads to choose from for off-road options. I decided to do some climbing and went for NFD Rd 64--to get to this road from the parking lot, ride your bike further up the valley a few hundred yards (their's a trail), and then take right. This road is fairly nice. There are lots of rock on it, but no potholes. It is a fairly uphill jaunt from the get-go. As I was approaching the top of the valley, I eyed a side road. The sign on it said (6400 500), so I don't know which is the name of the road, but I decided to take it, because it looked tiny and way less traveled (in fact it was closed to motorized vehicles). Nice. Yeah, this trail ended up being the high-point of the day. It wasn't single track, but it was close. I must admit I had the willies when I saw a half-eaten deer leg within the first minute of climbing (the rest of the ride I kept thinking of the cougar, bear, or zombie which was eyeing me from the bushes as I rode by). I love to climb. I love burning my quads like Hades. It felt good to be riding. Unfortunately, this side road only lasted a little bit before I made it up to the top of the ridge/mountain. Here this trail ties back up with one of the major dirt roads again. There are some decent views here. I then took the little road downhill. Man, I'm must be a total old fogie, because wow---I think I rode the breaks the entire way down! The road was steep, and I hit some high speeds within seconds. There were also rocks to watch out for as well. In other words, I rode it like an old person (which I am I suppose). But it was fun. It's the kind of fun, where you just have to yell with abandon (I think I did a few times--with a smile). These trails are definitely good for snow activities, and I'd say they are decent for bike riding. I don't know if I'd come here to do some straight-up hiking though. I'd save the Cascades for that. NOTE: Be careful on this road in the winter. This is the infamous scene of where my truck and my crew rolled down a mountain just over a year ago!

This is the Real Deal. There is no restaurant experience like this elsewhere. A little difficult to find and with the garden growing right next to the door. The prices were reasonable for being a very nice restaurant. My favorite restaurant that I have ever been to. I like that it feels a little bit secret! I highly recommend to all!
Expensive but very good food and the atmosphere is nice too

Dinner was a wedding gift and it was wonderful. Beautiful place with room for only a few, which makes it all the more intimate. Food was delicious and it was a great experience.
I went to the grand opening on Sept 18th with new owners. The food was awesome, made from scratch, featuring local produce, cheese, coffee, teas, breads, and even the flowers on the tables. Best ribs ever. The desserts were all made by scratch too, (chocolate souffle's, blackberry crisp, creme brule, cheesecake, and homemade ice cream). Loved, loved, loved this place.
Great dinner, will be back for more !!!!!!

Good food, friendly atmosphere in a tiny town. If you're passing through or stopping for a car show, this is a great place to get some lunch and drinks. Pizza and fries are available next door, but can be ordered from the pub.
Ordered a burger and a turkey sandwich. Burger was called in by the waiter and then cooked elsewhere. The sandwich was made in front of us and ready to eat 10 minutes before the burger even showed up. The burger was then delivered in a to-go container. Burger was ok at best.
Listen, I have to commend them for opening up a brewpub in Dayton, but it's not really all that awesome, as far as brewpubs go. Let's talk important things first: Beer. They had six of their own beers on tap, which is OK, but really (IMHO) the bare minimum you should have as a brewpub. The wife and I got a sampler of the six, and nothing wowed us. I thought the Scottish ale was decent, the stout was drinkable but disappointing for the style, and the others were relatively mediocre. Beer-wise, it's a good place to stop if you're stuck in Dayton, but not exactly a beer destination. The food wasn't all that good. The "kitchen" is roughly the size of the kitchen in my first apartment, and apparently the same person pours beer, serves as waitstaff, and puts together meals. I had a reuben, which was passable. The salad it came with was boring. My wife's burger was overcooked and not all that flavorful, and her french onion soup was terrible. And both meals came with Frito's. Price of the food wasn't bad for a lunch out, but it wasn't worth the quality. The service model was odd - there were a few tables, but no dedicated waitstaff. They had a sign up that you should go to the bar for service. Which was fine. But when we got there, we were the second table to sit. As such, the server greeted us at the table and brought stuff to us for the first 30 minutes or so. But when a few more people came in, they stopped, and without warning. It was a little unexpected and off-putting, at least until I figured out what was going on. All in all, it's worth a stop if you're driving through, but don't go out of your way.

The pizza is okay, the service a tad bit luke warm, and the atmosphere sterile and low key.
