    Wow, is Estacada where the mill used to be? Long time ago I believe. Some good Cutthroat fishing back up in there and If I remember some dang good Steelhead back in there. Going back a while.

    Have fun in there. Its beautiful.

    Hey a great run instead of taking the right to Detroit Lake take the detour through the woods up towards Timothy lake then back to town on 35 and out the gorge. I just ran this 2 weeks ago and it was great. Watch for snow though I got stuck in a snow storm.

    ...yea I went up the other side behind Bagby (6310 rd)
    on the gravel road sunday. there was about a mile of icy
    road on top, but great other than that...no dust...hard packed.
    the 45 loop road is in good shape too! :thumb

    Hey Gremlin, were you on a KLR? :huh

    One of the few paved backroads I have not been on yet. I will hit it on the way north, next time I do a trip to Canada.
