Sounds like a challenge to me

Imo, can be done wo knobbies with careful line picking and if it doesn't rain. Otoh, the bike with the knobbies today took a nap after crossing (almost) a small log

Here are a couple of teasers (from a quality photo hosting site )

It's an abandoned railbed.




At least we think so- don't know about ghost trains




Our first spot proved to be too slick-- but should be a great drop when it's not soft over frozen. And this railbed might be rideable for a while. Passed it a million times, so to Barry for suggesting we try it.

This cracked slimy dirt is really strange... must be a winter phenomenon.

The duck is under a rock shown by the arrow.



You can find a hiking trail here marked by white blazes, and this must have been the gap that Pocahontas' boyfriend found

We spotted Bigfoot at the tag site...


...before my bike took a nap on the way out.

Another pic of the new tag site:


Agreed on the cracked slimy dirt roads, never been on anything like that before.
Thanks KL_ARRR for another great trip out of my comfort zone.

Great clues!



Do you think the pass is open now? Or does it get closed for the winter?

Actually, there was a rumor that a couple of old farts were going to look for a duck today, but the leader of the pack got a "code-in-da-nose". Wonder what the snow pack is like there?
