    Where Exactly is "Middle GP" at Post Canyon?

    Can someone explain where Middle GP is at Post?

    Also, is Frankenstein repaired or is it gone?

    Thanks!

    Last time I went by Frankenstien (a week ago) it was still closed. I am betting all the features were wiped out in the ice storm, so if it comes back, it will take a long time.

    Good question on Middle GP. Everything is poorly signed and constantly shifting. Some are named. Some are numbered. Some are named and numbered. Nothing is where it used to be.

    Based on the latest map I have seen (the one prepared by Mayor Babitz), "GP" starts at Riordin Road, accessible from 8-track (turn right instead of heading to the Boot) or from Bad Motor Scooter. At the bottom of that section of GP, you can now take a left on a really nice new trail that ends at the beginning of Spaghetti Factory. Not sure if that new section is part of GP. So, that is the long way of saying I really have no idea. No idea what part is considered "Middle GP," even though I hear that referred to.

    I don't think there really is a "middle GP". GP runs from Bad Motor Scooter to Spaghetti Factory. There is a Junction half way down with a trail that leads to Toilet Bowl / Family Man. On Strava there are I think three sections for GP the one labeled "GP 2013 Full" goes from the end of Bad Motor Scooter to the start of Spaghetti Factory. The one labeled "2013 Lower GP" goes from the Halfway Junction to the Start of Spaghetti Factory and there is one labeled "GP" That goes from the end of Bad Motor Scooter and takes a right at the halfway junction and ends close to where the trail crosses the road on the way to Toilet Bowl. I suppose that little section from the halfway junction to Toilet Bowl might be considered Middle GP?

    ^^^Best guess, yet, and if true, "Middle GP" as described is so short as to barely warrant a name. It's more like a quick connecting spur from the top of Toilet Bowl to the junction of upper and lower GP.

    Sadly, that section is gone, but not forgotten!
