    Parked the Raptor at Silverwood dam, then a chilling pavement run around to the east side of the Mojave River.

    Blasted forest service roads over to Deep Creek crossing, jeep trail up to Crab Flats, and on up to Green Valley Lake.

    Apparently I forgot about my camera after lunch. No more pics.
    Ended up on Pilot Rock (2N33) pretty much all the way back down to the truck.

    Looks like a nice ride on a great day ... I did a lot of that same ride a couple months ago on my GSA and made the mistake of posting about it. Would have thought the world was coming to an end because I took my big bike over that run into Devil's Hole.

    Lots of rocks. Sortof a step on the east / trail side. I've seen water levels from ankle to waist deep.
    Road ends on the west side. Used to be 4x4 only, but recently graded.

    Hmm, is that the jeep track that ends at the posts and turns into the single track? If so, that was a great track, I was following a friend who was on his XR650R. Lots of great little hill climbs and descents, some tight corners (some pretty sandy) and lots of bush dodging. The ridge line down into Devil's Hole (coming from the East) was a little sketchy in parts. Going around a big tree stump I had a little front wheel wash out.

    At the bottom of the trail that rock garden to get to the water crossing was a real treat! Did a lot of rock bridge building over a couple of those steps. After Devil's Hole we rode toward Pinnacles and back to Silverwood.

    We did roll into Deep Creek/Dishpan that morning and chose to pass on riding up the rocks. It is pretty at that spot though.
