Thumb Oregon Backroads Discovery Trail

I've started the ride report here:

In the mean time, here's the tracks and a bunch of waypoints.

Watch out though... There's no gas in Union Creek like the map set says. You may need to carry water if you're going to camp, since a lot of the sites we stayed at/saw didn't have water. Some of the roads are now closed indefinately while others temporarily because of fire. I tried to make notes. We didn't make it up to China Creek to see if the road was indeed closed, but there is internet rumor that a motorcycle can still make it through...

A lot of the trail crosses through OHV areas that require stickers. They're $10- don't be a cheapskate, I'm sure the fine hurts. I've also heard that the NFS is cracking down on "non-compliant" vehilces. Make sure you're tagged and you've got the quiet exhaust and turn signals.

7 days wasn't enough time. We found ourselves pressed near the end and would have liked to detour off trial to explore a bit more.
