That's probably my most frequent dirt road ride, it's not that far from my house and very little traffic.


I hope this tagorama keeps going, wait till we get some more out of the way places

It's the old bridge south of Clear creek on the emory river

While you're in the area check out the old railroad tunnels ( you can go through one)

If you cross the river I hope you have the gazeteer, I took many turns exploreing places i had never been

dang. we were up there riding at the same time. I didnt hardly see another soul though...and none of the stupid roads up there had signs any more, just the signposts left. I got so lost....then my chain jumped off so i just fixed it in the middle of the road and decided to head back toward home. cops were out in mass on saturday.

I think i know where the new "secret" RR bridge tag is but im not positive. guess ill have to ride up and check...

Being new to the Chatt area, I will likely have zero tags. But thx for the map, I'll put these on my ride list.

Any of you folks get togther for wknd rides or those fancy ADV dinners I read about on the interweb?
