Any update on this? That little secret bypass was a favorite connector of mine... We've ridden through there numorous times and out past Rhody Lake towards Scotts Mills or Molalla.
Any chance a single track route could be created to keep that link there? I guess I need to ride up there and check it out...
For what it's worth, a small group of us are going to ride up to Monument Peak this Saturday (1-25-14)... and explore from there. We'll be meeting where the gravel starts near the horse staging area, probably around 10-1030am... I think it's where Gates School Rd and Monument Peak Road meet.
