    Trail starts behind this sign...

    There are three mud holes just past the entrance...they look nasty but are hard bottomed and weren't any trouble.

    Follow the trail past the kudzu field...at the intersection with a second trail, take a right.

    Just after that you'll come to a makeshift fire ring / beer can pile...grave marker is to the left, to your right is a mining cave entrance. Another 100 feet or so past both is a mine shaft...be careful, it's not marked. The whole area is also pockmarked with unmarked graves (not sure if it was a pauper's cemetery or one related to the mine).


    If anyone decides to grab the tag, lemme know...if I'm off work I'll tag along (there's another area not far away I found that I'd like to explore).

    I know exactly where that is. I park my van in the spot where the first pic is when I go for bicycle rides in that valley.

    You will notice my bike is wet, along with a water spot on the camera lens. So am I.

    Where was the tag spot near Springville? I tried to narrow it down by looking at various bridges via street view on Google, but couldn't figure it out.

    My first thought for the new tag was the bridge at Dumas Bridge Road. I went there in 2014 on my Xt350,

    [​IMG]

    I rode over that way last year on the R100GS and the road was closed, bridge was out. The road was open up to the bridge, and there was a big berm of dirt blocking both ends off the bridge. I rode over them without to much trouble on the GS and was thinkin' this would be a good place to set the tag after after getting the earlier tag.
    Instead it looks like a local land owner has removed the dirt berms and put up his own gates to block the road.
