    Chutes/Buckhorn/Captain Jacks conditions?

    We are going to squeak a quick ride out on Saturday in the Springs and would like to know if Buckhorn/Captains is in decent/good condition or all chewed up from motorcycles?

    Can anyone help with a little info?

    Thanks!

    Buckhorn should be fine, with a few exceptions where it's washed out. There are no motos allowed on Buckhorn and it packs better than CJ's since the grade is less. CJ's will be the loose goodness that it typically is. It's not so much the motos that loosen it up, it's more along the lines that decomposed granite isn't very conducive to packing or clumping. In other words, it becomes very loose after very little use regardless of who's on it. That's one of the things that makes that trail what it is - the challenge of using the high moto-carved banks to carry speed. If you prefer CJ's to be packed, make fresh tracks down it after a rain.

    Oh, I forgot to add, those trails are horrible to ride. Motos destroy them. They add flow and burms and woopty-dos and you know, things that make riding a bike miserable.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.
