    Riding Wildhorse Ext/ Wildhorse east to west

    Riding Wildhorse Ext/ Wildhorse east to west after a rain is pure flowy mountain biking goodness. That is all.

    Most people never see the WILD horses, but they are out there. I have seen them once only. I'm pretty sure the big one is SPIRIT from the movie What I want to know is has anyone made the climb up out of the wash that runs into wild horse on the west end?

    If its the wash where Big Rock heading north intersects with Wild Horse then yes I've made the climb out of that wash going either way.

    Is this the wash you are talking about?

    Go here: Twisted Sister-Big Rock

    start first video and go to 5:00 min.

    Lew, You have to attack the base of the hill with speed and then down shift once you hit it. If you get enough speed, it seems you just have to grind out two or three pedals. We can do it when we finally meet up for a Hawes ride one of these days.

    Douger is a trans super hero for sure!

    Saw the wild horses over on the Hawes side on a ride just after Christmas. I had just come down the switchbacks on Saddle(?), and at the next "T", instead of heading right (East) to go to Mine trail, I went left (West) to head back towards start. Near the second wash crossing after turning left, there were about 5-6 horses. I only got as close as the trail took me (maybe 75ft), but they just eyed me without running away. Pretty cool sight!

    I've seen the horses walking in the river a few times during the hot months. Last time I saw them there was a what I think was a mare, and a colt..and a few others.

    I wonder if the horses were aware that when they exited the river on the north side they were entering Native American - American Indian Reservation Tribal Land.

    went out and rode WILDhorse this morning with AZORR. We ran into SugarHigh and johan coming off the minetrail, cool dudes I gave the steep climb out of the wash from bigrock trail to WILDhorse a shot and i'm happy to say I now OWN it Don't know what changed, but I rode it clean first try. WILDhorse is so fun from east to west. I'm say'n the 5 mile climb out east is worth it

    Saw the same group of horses in the same spot yesterday. Pretty cool for sure.

    I like to ride bikes fast.
