    If you were all on scooters, it would be a hoot.

    Hi all.
    Looking at Google maps, it looks like I could go from 224, up 4610/Abbott rd, and go all the way to hwy 35. Is that correct?
    Thanks
    Mike

    If you're going on the Ural I'd say unfortunately no. There's a large washout on 4610 with only a sketchy bike width bridge across it, and riding around is tough even on a small bike. It sucks because 4610 is a great way to get to the mountain and make large loops.

    And you're right.
    That's a tiny little bridge.

    I can't tell you the exact mileage but it is a good ride up and back. It takes a couple hours on a fast bike. There is a spot to turn around at the washout.

    Started a ride heading up the Pipeline Road towards Harriet Lake the way to work on the campground or they had the road closed we look for a way around but all we found were dead ends some of which were some really awesome to track I got the Twisted grip pretty hard and it was a lot of fun. After looping back around on the pavement we headed toward Timothy and hit the CDR to Frog Lake from Frog Lake we cut across to Barlow Road and rode into Wamac for lunch. It was after three by this time so we hit Ty Valley for gas took the back roads over to Frend and hooked a left and went up to the lookout. There was a huge storm brewing on top of the mountain and with dark approaching we slapped it home.
