    I sure couldn't figure out the rock hopping here. Think the gaps between boulders on the steeper sections might gobble up many ATVs & Side-by-sides. Fifteen years ago I would drive this in a Toyota 4x4 pick-up with 31" BFGs. 44" or larger exo-skeletonized Toyotas seem to be the vehicle of choice these days. Trail gets steeper to the left with bushel sized boulders before descending into a snow filled bottomlandScreen Shot 2019-07-21 at 8.25.57 PM.png

    Still lots of softer TW friendly terrain and clear running water. Attachment 195518

    Feeling mortal and a bit lazy I turned around here too after seeing what was around corner. This one was not much worse than last time I rode here...doable but lengthy boulder patch leads to stellar creekside camping.Attachment 195520

    Fred,
    Keep the pics coming. The last one only says: attachment 195520 but, will not come in. I sure like that area. Gonna have to make an effort to get up there and camp some place and do a bit of TW exploring. I'd like to consult you at a later date for a "beginner" so-to-speak" if that's ok. I've done a few zillion miles of Jeep'n and, hard core stuff but, not a lot of bike'n. It sure looks like a ton of fun.

    Excellent! Nice pics thank you for sharing. My stomping grounds.

    One of these days we should attempt to put together a Nor Cal ride in that general area as there is a ton of fantastic trails to explore.

    Fred,
    Not sure what's happening here but, the last couple of posts you've done, included a pic or two but, they are only, 195518 and 195520. I click on them and it only leads me to an: "Invalid Link". I'm obviously signed in and all that so, not sure what's up.

    Sorry, my new phone & I are not playing well together thus photo posting difficulties.

    A few more glimpses of seemingly endless places of natural beauty one can see in a day from the saddle of a TW.

    My camp was tucked away with just a line of trees between van and the rock bound mirror lake. Takes a little negotiating to get in there but this is a good example of why I have the 4x4 van/ Motojack lift/ TW combination...puts me right in heart of some quality terrain seemingly all to myself. Good base camp for riding or just taking a late night stroll under the stars after the fire burns down to glowing coals.
