It'll take you half a day to fill in that washout with an e-tool.
I can't pack one of these on the bike...

Learn to build a ramp and jump the damn thing! It's only 5-6 feet. Channel Pastrana!

4. Sleeping Bags.
Joe and I got to Rhubarb Pond today. This finishes the entire route that we tried to do over Memorial Day weekend. The gate was closed then on East Inlet Road. We made it today to the very end of the road. We also did a bit of exploring in the area up there. I'll be adding some options to the main GPX file soon. When the gates are open at the top end of the route, there's a lot of good remote riding.
Must mention Notch View Inn and Campground in Colebrook, NH. It's a great place to stay. Motorcycle friendly. Great service. We stayed in the house. The tent and RV sites are great, too.
The latest version of the GPX file (v07.3) has been posted to the FIRST POST of this thread.
The track has been reinstated to Rhubarb Pond at the northern end. It had been abbreviated when gate 353 was closed. The gate is now open.
Added an optional track for a scenic view near the northern end of the route. If riders have time to play around the top end of the state, this is a great detour. This optional track will bring you back to US Route 3 near Pittsburgh, NH via dirt roads. The view is seen in photos above. It's a neat crest of a mountain top. 360 degree views looking into Maine and Canada.
If you cross the dam at Rhubarb pond and continue a little farther. There is a great camping spot. We camped last year starting from North to south. Later, we were told it isn't legal to camp there. I don't know, but there were certainly no signs saying that.
You're right about that. We did go around the pond to that spot. I thought it would be a good camping place. It's about 800' from the Canadian border. I'm sure there is some kind of surveillance around there.
Start a fire and set a timer. I'm curious to see how long it takes the SUVs to show up
Who cuts that grass is what I want to know!
There's a herd of feral goats up there...
Speaking of camping.....Is dispersed camping allowed anywhere along the route? My sons and I are trailering to the southern end on the 20th and hitting the trail on the 21st.
Maybe up in the far northern section. Everything from Littleton down is primarily just small town dirt roads.
I haven't found any information about remote camping up north. There are desolate spots that would make nice camping sites.
There is this for the safer option:
Also, I stayed here last weekend. Very pleased with the accommodation and service. It's near Colebrook, so pretty close to the top end of the route.
And thank you very much for putting this together and keeping it updated.
All they would do is apologize..,
What was the status of the two washouts this time?
As far as I know, still not repaired. I did not get on that part of the route this past weekend. Others have said the road is still out.
