Fantastic view! I think this could be a really fun event.
Please keep in mind that many of us will be at the Hiawatha Rally the first weekend of June.

I want to go to this but June is already very busy. Maybe a little mid week diversion for some of us.

June is busy

I'm eager to hear when in June this will take place. I've only got one weekend free that month. Hopefully it will fall within my time constraints. I've been interested in riding some of the fire roads in that area for a few years now.

Here's a link to a thread with a track we did a few years ago. Looks similar to jwalters'. Nice gravel up there.

I'd be interested if the timing works out.

Also wanted to mention: please watch out for inattentive drivers on the scenic hiway. The scenery is nice, so they don't watch the road.

Intresting... I drive by your property everyday I go to work.

When you get back in country, pm me and we can discuss routes and ideas. I grew up on the Northshore. Ted
