Thumb Oregon Backroads Discovery Trail

I've started the ride report here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=168431

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.

What is the SMTS? I need to find dirt from the southern end of the OBCD route to reno. Have a link to your library on gpsxchange?

Humunn is helping me out with the OBCD tracks.

Statewide Motorized Trail System see SMTS.info for all lthe history, current tracks are only on GPSX. It was the name before the PC police changed it to BCDT but never did any thing so I only use the name I worked on for 10 years.

Just go to GPSXchange.com and go to "Countdown" under private libraries about half way down then "Statewide Motorized Trail System".

Check Pacific Crest Quest on ADV for that connection. I have Reno to Mexico.
