Question Good road in Vancouver area for dialing in suspension

Can I get a suggestion for a good road to dial in suspension with low traffic?

I just remembered that the end of Washougal River Rd is good for this. Any others you folks might recommend?

Good call Greg, thanks! Was having a mind blank and haven't done much local riding this summer. Did a couple trips to the Great White North though! I'm not even sure I've done a Carson/Cougar loop this year. Crap, and never made it up to Windy Ridge!

Ok, looking like Wed or Thursday to play and tune.

Great loop with lots of varying conditions. We used to run that loop every Wednesday after work! I miss those days

Edit: You will upset the weather gods if you don't stop in Stevenson for a few beers. Don't forget.

I would strongly suggest a small local loop, with sweepers and off camber rippled, up and down hill. you will need to repeat the same road conditions many times in different air temperatures to do it right. It has got to be convient to your start point. The front end really is affected by air temp. Lake Mathews in Riverside California is perfect. Have fun.

One of my very favorite routes, but it looks like the map's trying to label the start of NF25 as the name for what is NF90, then Curley Creek Road & finally Wind River Highway on the SE portion of your loop. Of course, the white road leading N from the dot is N25. I sure hope it, and NF99 (the Holiest of roads, to me) will be open this summer, so I can try the new FZ07 out on it. Besides, I haven't had the chance to ride it since 2014. Waaaay to long!
