That depends on you. Not totally steep but quite a bunch of rocks in the trail on the way up. Typical of old mining roads that have suffered 100 years of rain n snow. Nice fun ride, tho. Wouldn't do it w/o knobs. That is true for most old mine roads around here. Always impressive to me is how steep they made these roads that were traveled by wagons powered by mules. Not to mention the switchbacks the wagons negotiated.

I wandered around checking some trails & roads that I had not been on before. Soon I wound myself on a steady uphill climb on a gnarly trail...



Continuing to climb I found some of this. Hmmm...Winter is on it's way...



I finally ended up here. Where am I?...




Since the shadows were getting long I headed home for the day. But there were more sights to see so I returned the next day.

I checked out this trail but it looked pretty ugly being several miles of uphill rock garden so I bailed. I didn't want to work that hard today. Recognize it?



Finding another trail...



This trail was mo betta as it was in the sun & scenic...



Soon I ended up here. More mine tailings. Man, these people really worked their butts off diggin these holes...



Been here ?

Finally, I felt relaxed & headed home. Good therapy. I recommend to anyone!

Do we have a winner yet? I'm guessing somewhere between Stockton and Five Mile Pass. ?

Replacing the burden of carrying fuel with the overwhelming burden of carrying water.




In the end though, just like riding moto.

Nice!

So you replaced the kiddo with 5 gal of H2O.

I figure you need about 1 gal / day on a motorbike. How much per day are you using in the pedal bike? 2x?
