    My thoughts as well.
    Gone are the days we stopped to decide,
    Where we should go,
    We just ride...

    I rode it Thursday. All the creek crossings are running 1 to 2 feet deep, but are 100% rideable with a little luck. Your chamois will be like a wet diaper after the first couple crossings, but you will have an ungodly amount of fun despite this. Trail is uber tacky in between crossings.

    I talked to a guy who did Hewlett's earlier today on the trail. He said the stream crossings were plentiful, but that it was a lot of fun. I've always rode it in July/August when it's super hot/dry, but would like to try it out if my stupid motor vehicle were in better condition.

    It is not a bad ride from town. Just don't ride in the canyon on a weekend. Too much traffic.

    The road in the canyon is too narrow for my taste. I don't think I could do it and enjoy it. But now that I know it's possible I might have to try sometime anyway. What's the recommended route? Straight up 287 to 14 or is there a better way?

    I prefer to ride Overland Trail to 54g (in LaPorte) and take that to 287 to 14. Cuts out some of the highway.
