    Wildfire smoke cancelled plans to return to these access trails linking up to the Pacific Crest Trail. Returning next weekend with Boarder255 on his WR250 is the new plan hoping for smoke free riding.

    This video begins about where the last one ends. Nice place to rock on. Found this place enduro riding decades ago and then got distracted kayaking the glaciated rockbound lakes there for the next 15 years.

    'tis Saturday, don't we need more videos to watch? Beats mowing the lawn.
    Springtime sure has good riding options at mid-elevations, about 6,000 ft here.

    OK, one more video.
    If this doesn't make one want to go single trackin' on the TW nothin will.
    Several sections were a little rough though.

    Now on that last section I can see some peoples desire for the front disc brake.

    You could fly across the pond and sample a bit of our trails as Purple shall do next year at the Moab gathering of TW fans. With a loaner bike this could be you.
    The video doesn't really capture the sense of steepness and uncertainty of route ahead that a rider gets on his first time following the guide lines painted on the rock. I recall thinking more than once "Certainly we're not going down through there,are we? "
