Abbott Road 3-29-15 -or "Along came 88Toyota"

I recently read CineRiders thread about the infamous Abbott Road and decided to look at the thing myself.

My riding buddy Mike from the local group I ride with -OCDS Riders out of Oregon City- was the perfect partner in crime

Got me a plan...where is my chain saw ?

I had never been up there, just seen various photos of the slip, the slide , the washout, ... the repair done to "get around it" , Applejam rapelling his 990 down !!! , so I decided to see for myself and take said
partner in crime as well as chainsaws as my KLR DOES NOT DO logs
with me on it

The Washout and the fallen tree

Well ........... lo and behold the damn thing is what....40 feet deep !!!

For reference Mike is standing at the top right, there are two deep ruts coming straight down, then one has to sort of hang a left, make it through deep snot-mud and up the other side, a (for me) steep 25 foot climb.

I ride a KLR, remember?

Sigghhh!!!

way around what exactly ?

So this little crossing had a log lying across it , we figured we'll likely
turn back, but - while here - are going to do some wood cutting
This puts the ruts in perspective, red snot everywhere

This ruts lead to said crossing, but are so deep it'd be hard to get back out of them
The crossing is about 20 feet to the right .






Timber !!!

Love me a good tool.....battery powered, nothing flood, or leaks.



GAWD< Mike, that's a lotta smoke !!!

images from the washout itself


This vies is about 40 feet down, the ground is soft , washed out roots everywhere



The problem....running water right out of the washout at the bottom



Pictures never do it justice. Steeper than it looks going up on the other side to
where Abbott road continues

Nice view of what's there or maybe I should say what's not there.

If the KLR crossed that tree there wouldn't be any bark left cause the skid plate would have ripped it all off.
