    Single Track Riding - Mule Style

    On the trails north of McCall, Idaho.

    Shouldn't that mule be wearing a helmet?

    No. It's against the Mule Union rules!

    It's the Pre-1987 Model. Not many people knew or believe there was one and mistakenly give credit to the Big Wheel series as the TW200 predecessor!

    Yup, sure was. We also rode over to Serene Lake. There was a couple dirt bikes ahead of us looking for the Vance Trail 160 to ride up to Hazard, but neither we nor them could see where that trail parted from the Serene Lake trail. We could easily see the Serene Lake trail but not the one to Hazard. I noticed this year Park & Rec's online trail maps indicates the trail up to Hazard is now non-motorized, so this is a change as it was ok for motorcycles in the past.

    I've been tempted to ride the Grassy Lake trail on the TW, but every time we get up there to ride it's on the mules. Saw a video of some dirt bike riders on this trail after the fires went through the area.

    You've seen these and they are beautiful.

    Grassy Lakes


    Serene Lake




    The trail to Serene Lake is a deadend, but we couldn't find the Jct. for the other trails which branch off but are indicated on the sign.


    We've also ridden down to Coffee Cup Lake


    But not down to Frog Lake


    Or this lake which the name escapes me right now (Morgan?). Hopefully those tree's are still down there and didn't burn up in the fire.

    Admiral, don't want to put you on the spot, but this is one person that just has to do a ride in your area. Some truly beautiful country. I see there was a burn around some of those lakes. Looks like a few years back. I know this year you had some big burns, I know it will come back soon. Nature has a way.

    I bet the exhaust odor is different than the TW's. Seriously, thanks for the ride.
    Long live the internal combustion engine!
