    Smile SILVER CREEK to EMPIRE PASS 2/24/2009

    Didnít feel like driving today. I was wondering how far I could get down Silver Creek ? My plan all the way to Dumont and back to Georgetown via Empire Pass one of my favorite loops!

    Looks like fun!

    So how did you get around the ice flow? Detour through the woods? I think I would've wanted crampons.

    Nice report Brian, we did a ride up there, or close one year, and hit a patch of ice just like that. There was a jeep that drove up to it, threw down some kitty litter, and drove right up it!
    I'll see if I can find the pics!
    With this nice weather I, for one, am expecting a lot of snow in March!!!!!!!
    Can't wait to hit those trails this year.

    Thanks for that ride report. Looks like a fun ride. I haven't ridden those trails in over 15 years. Will have to get back there after that iceberg melts this summer.

    Looks like the perfect trail for some Mountain Bike Bobsled Pinball.
