    CT Segments 22 and 23

    CT Segments 22 and 23 - Spring Creek Pass to Silverton

    Has anyone tried to ride these two segments back-to-back in either direction? Most of the information I'm seeing says there's a lot of hike-a-bike, so I'm wondering how much hiking and how long it would take to ride both.

    Definitely a viable and amazing ride to combine the two, except for the logistics. If someone is running shuttle for you, then by all means, do this ride. It will be a long day and yes, there will be plenty of hike a bike- but definitely worth it. I would prefer 22 first, but the other direction would work.

    Heh - strange timing. We are doing this point-to-point this upcoming weekend.

    I rode Spring Creek -> Cataract Lake a couple years ago. Late start is *not* recommended. We bailed at West Lost Trail Creek due to time.

    This year we're starting earlier.

    There is definitely a goodly bit of hike-a-bike, but it's def worth it. We're figuring on 12 hours of trail time to finish the route.

    Rode this a couple weeks ago with SkaredShtles... Dide segment 22-23 then down West Pole Creek Trail. Long day, 12-1/2 hours for us.

    Feeling Small in Big Places: Jarosa Mesa > Cataract Ridge > West Pole Creek | Dirt and Snow








    EDIT: Yes, lots of hike-a-bike. Lots of time above 12K, which made some things hike-a-bikey that would be pedalable at 9 or 10K.
    The older I get, the faster I was.





    Punch it, Chewie.
