....talk about a needless use of taxpayer money! Seems it would be cheaper to upgrade the vehicles to handle the trail then to hire heavy equiptment every 10 years!

Wow, I can't believe it. Excellent pictures, thank you! The first tough spot is just after the mine right? Before the corner with the bypass? "the rock" is in what I've always called "rocker alley" where I scratched my fender flare on last year's night run.. same place where Robbie had to strap Bobo's open 60 during the prerun, if anyone else remembers that. Then the stump you could either try to go over, or take it wide & hit your diff on a different rock, which appears to be gone now... I can't believe that's the same road.

Very good Grasshopper! The ridge road is the same way! Some familier places I was looking for for a photo were almost unfindable! Remember the broken off camber step? I think I found it on the way back down...not positive. As loose as it is now some heavy rain and snow runoff will wash it out quickly exposing new challenges but it will take a couple of winter/springs.
Soooooo....million dollar question....who's up for the first semi-annual Friday Afterwork Club run? Now rated easy/moderate. :p

I believe it is...not positive. It was closed because folks were "bogging" in the wetland marsh area's right there I found out. Not that many people go all the way to that dead end now so I guess locking the gate worked.
