    CDT from Cumbres Pass

    The whole day was spent above 10,000ft, I think we were pushing 12,000ft at the turn around point. I'm still tired...









































    If by chance any of you are planning to do this ride be warned that there is much deadfall down on the lower section of 813. "Detours" are in place that route you up the logging road where you intersect 813 a mile or so before the ridgeline.

    Nice. That last view into the valley made gasping for air worth it. I need to hang out at 11,000' more often.

    Yes!, this is what MTBR is all about. Be it epics rides/pics such as Andy's thread or mediocre every day BS from the Bandoleros. Can't we all get along?

    Sweet pictures, looks like an awesome adventure. Thanks for sharing.

    I looked for that valley all day!

    When you're right, you're right. No doubt that threads like these will spawn some interest. Thus, creating more usage. We are still a community, somewhat, so why not educate the few and feed the masses?

    This trail is common knowledge, as far as fat gut, no one in our group has a fat got.
    I know this area from Tele and Climbing, which is by far more demanding than opening you mouth and letting your stupidity come out...like everyone else has said the info is out there to be had.

    Sigh, you do need the practice.

    You're cynicism/sarcasm-foo is weak. I think you've been spending too much time watching Aaron Peirsol on the moob-tube. Save some for the Gymnasts or least Dara Torres.


    But you can still reel the fish in.
    See the trails, be one with FOO-MTB.

    This trail info didn't come from you and is not a poach.


    And funny you mention trash, Tim actually packed out a water bottle left by some littering fool near the summit.
