    Hope that all are ok.

    At 5:00 PM or so on Saturday 1/26, after just coming down Maple Springs Road, I was shootin the crap with a couple of guys at the gate when a sheriff SUV pulled up and talked to a guy in a pick-up and then the two of them headed up/into CNF. Less than 5 minutes later a sherrif's car pulls up, stops for a minute and heads up as well.

    Being the curious sort, I waited a few and then headed up to see what was going on. About a mile or so past the endo of the pavement they all stopped and were using flashlights to look down the hill. I stopped, removed my helmet and asked what was going on. In typical cop fashion I got nothing but attitude. I told them that I had just come down a half hour before but they didn't seem interested - at all. I continued up to Four Corners, hung out a few minutes and headed back down toward Maple Springs. They were all gone by the time I came back.

    Nothing else. No helicopters, tow trucks, etc. Kinda odd to say the least.

    What I did learn was that I will never buy a used police cruiser - that guy was thrashing that poor car.

    For sure not us.
    Update- did some research and it looks like these guys might have been trying to ascend the old bus trail that Jungle and Grinch opened back up a few years ago. She's a handful and not an easy task.
    So almost 100% sure its not people from this site cause these guys and gals would never attempt that trail. Except for our devils goats MC and a few others. We aint skeered.

    Sounds like they were just screwing around on undeveloped land next to the 15, if it's between Bosley and Broken Bit. Unless that's where you are talking about, but I don't know about any difficult trails there (I'm open to PMs that contradict that :ear)

    What are the chances that the Maple Springs Gate is open tomorrow? Want to ride the Super Enduro to the KTM Demo then do a rip up to the peak afterwards.

    I’ll be curious to hear how the demo rides go, I couldn’t go to the Murrieta one but a friend went and said he was only able to ride one bike because of how they had the signups organized. Maybe they’ve figured it out since then, I hope.

    Any word on gate status? Are you going to gear up and chance it? If so, maybe I'll join you. Otherwise I will probably ride the GSA and do some additional street riding. In the old days the gate would be closed for sure. Don't know these days.

    Doubtful. Can see the snow all the way to the peak from the house.

    There’s also a bunch of water/slide activity I’ve seen in the area.
