We were pretty sure we knew were Low Gap was going so we headed south. Followed it all the way back down to 71b. Not wanting to explore that road we turned back and headed west at the next intersection which was CR156 had a slight course correction as we could not tell if the road actually ended or someones yard had just enguled the road. So we turned and found another way around. CR156 ended by the Woolsey Cemetery on 71B. Think I knew were I was I took the lead to show Tim the back way to West Fork. Well after a U turn on 71 back to the Woolsey cemetery we head across the old bridge and then up to West Fork Through the paved curved along the river and north past Tims test plots. Make it back up to Fayetteville and while Magoo heads home I headed to La Hacienda for some grub.
Nice little exploration after work. So I have the first little bit of gravel from West Fork to Drakes creek figured now I just need to get from CR34 to Thompson cut or Crosses on on 16 via gravel or dirt and we will be good for a Saturday Ride ffrom West Fork past Docs to Mossy Creeks. Of course the water will need to go down before I am trying Thompson Cut. If Elvis goes first I'll follow as long as JD is with.
Yup, that was Low Gap (CR100), which is now "paved" for much of that route between CR30 and CR154. Great ride, I am still smiling. The KLR is very experienced on the gravel, but that was my first (and Charlie's right, I am hooked). No pictures (next time, for sure), but here is the gravel part of the route we took.
