    You head towards Brownlee Reservoir from Cambridge and hang a right on Seid Creek Road. The trailhead is named "Little Pine" in the Benchmark Book.

    Sunday works for me and maybe Jason will make it as well. We could meet at the trailhead at 9:00 or meet in Cambridge at 8:30.

    I'm meeting Chris "IDXR600" at the gas station in Cambridge where you turn to go to Brownlee at 8:30 Sunday morning. Anyone else? The more the merrier.

    This sounds like fun, never ridden up there except on snowmobiles. Look for a white F350 with a Husaberg in the back!

    We rode the Loon Crk / Pinyon Peak loop this weekend counter clockwise from Yankee Fork... for anyone planning this loop in the near future be advised that #172 road from Loon Crk Guard Station up the backside of Pinyon Peak has three or four good rock slides covering the road along with a couple of trees. We managed easy enough with our DRZ's, but I wouldn't advise attempting with anything much larger.

    The road is also still blocked up top by what I refer to as the Pinyon Glacier.

    Absolutely beautiful ride. Though I saw you struggle just a bit in the video, the ride none the less looks so tranquil.

    After you showed the pictures of the wood on top of Lava Mtn, I had to check out Rex's Forest Fire Lookout website. This website lists Lava Mtn having a fire lookout cabin in 1925 and was gone by 1949, hence the boards still there in your photo. (http://www.firelookout.com/id/lavamtn.html)

    Again, great looking ride!

    You let a little thing like that stop you? Never ridden up there. Looks like it could be doable for my wife on her TW200 with a bonus stay in Stanley. I need to keep track of those. :D

    Very cool, thanks! I think I'd seen that site before and then totally forgot about it. I like being able to connect some dots. I updated the report with that bit of information.

    Oh, it didn't stop us :ricky ... to the amusement of the Pinyon Peak LO attendant I'm sure....

    It's a great track.... a bit dirty in that it does have spots of loose rock, so it would depend on her comfort level in changing conditions. There is also a bit of exposure up top.
