I've been there a few times with the Cap'n, Tom and Oldx. I was going to crawl to the end of the log in this picture last time I was there, then aborted mission when I noticed how rotten it was.

Did anyone save a gps track they could share? I wasn't able to make the event, but I'd like to try the route.

That's the one. Would have been a great view out there, but a painful drop if the log broke.

Was that a checkpoint on the route, Mark? Did the course go through the landslide on 18?

Yep, we stopped there.. no checkpoints, we all just followed Marty. The landslides cleaned up, all the gravel roads were like freeways.. not a down tree to be had anywhere...

We basically went backwards on some of the roads we've ridden from here at the house, and some of 17/18. We went to the cool rock look out, but there's something even cooler in the trees behind there.

We ended up right in my backyard, taking the shortcut to split rock from Old Day Creek, proceeded to hit a little Walker single track, then went out the cavanaugh side, over to oso, then back to the park. Yes Marty can single track a 990..

Painting such a creation is against the rules.

Here's one from the great midwest



It must be a variation on the old racing rule "run what you brung". This one is "lift what you got".

Sorry for the hijack. Couldn't resist sharing.

I'm curious about the route. Anyone got a GPX track they'd be willing to share?
