    Spruce Mountain Trails are Open

    Just a public service announcement. Zero deadfall on the nine miles of Spruce trails.

    Get out there.

    My wife spotted a bear near the top hiking up the short side last weekend. I imagine it is the same one that hangs out on watershed.

    Looks good over there on Spruce Mountain. Here's looking back at ya from Spruce Mountain Road. Rode there on saturday, the 27th. It was a good day until I missed 297. Glad to hear the trail is cleaned up. Maybe I'll hit that next time I come up from the valley.

    Nice. On Saturday I went up and did the Sycamore Rim trail. That was different. I highly recommend FS for it, even though there are a few very smooth sections (there are a few very rocky sections). It was nice and cool up there of course.

    I rode Spruce Mountain for the first time on Saturday the 27th. It was a lot of fun and I'll definitely ride it again. I too missed the 297 but I caught the 299 to 396 and had a great ride even though my route finding skills leave much to be desired.

    Anyone see a smart ass aroound here? Sometimes google and google earth don't have trails. Hell, maps don't even have my home street on them.

    I saw them last weekend when I was riding down 307. Conservation Corp work crew it seemed, I think that's what the trucks said. It definitely wasn't High Gear.

    MTBR has a whole section dedicated to trails and descriptions.

    you guys rocked....In celebration of a clear trail Christi and I did the loop on the tandem

    BTW...if your thinking of doing this loop better get on it! the loop was cleared on Sunday and on Monday there was already one tree down (we moved it off the trail) just to many sick trees up there.

    Cheers

    I like that loop a lot, has a nice back country feel to it, but the rocks do wear ya down. Any water in the falls? Been there 3 times never lucky enough to have water going over the falls. KA Hill is a bit of a grind, does look tough but it just kept going up. I have always rode it in a clockwise loop next time will do it the other way.

    Sweet......nice descent on that loop for sure! Anyone know of any trails by the Wolf Creek area? Every time I ride the dirt bike to Crown King I wonder what "gems of singletrack" might be back there!

    No water in the falls, but the cloud cover was nice. At first I was afraid it would start storming during my ride, but it started dissipating shortly after I started. I did it counter clockwise. I find it interesting how Cosmic Ray calls the tanks "swimming holes". I sure as hell wouldn't go in that stagnant water, ever.
