Chalk Mountain area

Anybody ride the Chalk Mountain (between Stephenville & Glen Rose) area much? I took some sweet dirt roads north of there this week, & some south of there also. I was blown away by how nice the area is. Definatley worth a day trip thru that country.

Yep, it's my backyard. I'm guessing you rode Deep Down Ranch Road.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

51 south to Paluxy turn right on 205, toward Stephenville, then left in 75 yards.

Aye, that's it! I came thru Tolar & took 56 to that route there. Awesome area.

I need to go back & just ride the county roads more in that area.

I'll probably go down it tomorrow to check the depth of the 3 water crossings that should be running well. If I don't float the sidecar all should be great.

Been by that road many times and did not realize there was a great county road there. Cannot wait to check it out.

Here's the other 2 crossings on Deep Down from this morning.





I also went by to check the one on Bakers Crossing and it was lapping the one foot mark and flowing swiftly. Then I ran the one on Coleman Ranch Road and it was right at one foot and then went over to run Bushy crossing.



Not a bad little ride and the roads were great.

I was going to ride this route this weekend. I wonder if it is too flooded to ride.
