    Nice Loop!

    Started at Cedro Lower Lot and proceeded up the dump road through Five Hills to radio toweres. Followed the Super D Course across Brigidy Briggs to service road, and down Powerline/Sweat'n Bullets

    Some photos:

    We had a nice group today!



    Great weather and good company make for some sweet moments



    hard pack trails don't hurt either!



    and an obstacle or two

    what part of five hills do you ride? My parents live up in that area and my wife and I have ridden some of the trails around there - it's a nice area to ride.

    cool pics too, as always!

    not to be confused with 5 Hills Rd. area; 123 is referring to 5 hills of death adjacent to Cedro peak.

    ohh,,you mean 4 hills rd. No, barefly we near the five hills of 'death' on our way up to Cedro Peak.

    There is some good riding in the 4 Hills area though. Follow FH rd to Stagecoach and make a right, follow till it dead ends at the Open Space. Follow the dirt road up for a ways and the jeep tracks start to spur off here and there to your left. Or, climb up from the Route 66 side as far as you can, then bomb back down!

    yeah, after looking at the map, I figured you meant five hills of death. My parents are in the five hills neighborhood and when my wife and I visit, we bring the bikes and ride around in there. Last time, we did Marble shoot or something like that. That was fun, challenging but fun. then did some loops around there. I've been all over the area up there, but that was on the quad. I told my dad next time I ride up there, he can lead me from the house to Cedro... although that might be too much!
