    I'm going to check right now. The road was still closed yesterday afternoon and there was a lot of snow on it last week but I heard today that someone rode lower. I'll be back.

    Just got back and... the road was open when I drove up to 420 and still open when I drove home. I rode lower wasabi and there was one blow down that needs a chain saw and there were about four snow drifts left that should be gone soon. If you do ride it in the very near future be heads up for a small tree right about eye level just before the chute, It almost got me. There is also a new bonus level between where wasabi ends and oldham so you don't have to ride the road. It is pretty fun and has a jump, but won't last if the berms aren't rock armored and the jump is basically a pile of sand. Fun little part and thanks to the guys that put it in this week but it needs some fine tuning if it is going to last.

    too bad I am at work and not out there. need to do some recon on the reserves. think there will be lots of snow and some trees to move. Make sure to get your fire wood permit. Cant ticket you if cutting in a legal cutting area w/ permit.

    Is there anyone planning on riding or shuttling some of these trails (Wasabi, Private Reserve. Brookbank, Pickle, Ginger, etc) Thursday afternoon this week?

    I'll be down this weekend.... and have rides planned in Flagg on Friday and Sedona on Saturday but would be arriving thursday and could be ready to ride by 2:00 or 3:00.

    Ouch! That's the AZ hospitality us out of staters are looking for.

    If I lived closer I would either pull a firewood permit or take my bow saw out there...not telling those on roadtrips to do it themselves.

    not meaning to be harsh, just not going to be clear for another week or so. The goods take time, esp considering we are still underground up here. Patience is a virtue.

    So if you had a big group of people wanting to ride Preserve etc on their big bikes who just happened to be up on Elden for, say, a long weekend... would we be able to do the majority of the clearing on one run? Ride, clear, ride, clear....

    just a guess, but prolly need a chains saw, thus the need for a "firewood permit". generally USFS frowns on civilians in the woods with chain saws.

    not that it couldnt be done.......

    No worries. I didn't take that as harsh. Just stating facts.... and knowledge is what we out-of-towners need. If it's still too muddy, snowy, or if there's too much deadfall to make for a good ride that's what I need to know. Thanks.

    I am interested in the answer to Durtgirl's question though. Would a big group be able to clear the trails in one run. (You Phoenix peeps planning a trip this weekend, Kathleen?)

    No KK, but yes there is a group planing to be at the spot on Epic Rider's map. last I heard pedaling on Sat. Shuttle on Sun. I have not decided if I'll be camping/day tripping. If I'm camping...then I'm pedaling both days.

    Rob - join us! We'll be camping left after the first cattleguard going up Schutlz pass rd. Anyone else is welcome too. Some are heading up Fri - I'll likely be there Saturday morning, staying thru Monday. Sounds like trails are ready for the out-of-town invaders! Temps will be down in the 30s at night so bring your down jacket. Brrrr.

    Sounds like fun. I've got a Triple H thang going on Saturday with Zul but am planning on riding Flagstaff Friday with AndyN and a couple of New Mexicans he's bringing along with him. Is that your group?

    Trying to line up my Thursday afternoon dance card. Was going to do some rock crawling with Enel in Prescott but he's had a family emergency come up so am looking at options.

    I may just take my "Map by Dale" and roam around Mt. Elden when I roll into town until it's dark or I get lost...... but it's always better with someone with local knowledge leading the way.

    Havent been able to get over there, road was closed today for grading, most deadfall up here usually requires a chain saw, with a pretty large blade. If you do go up please do not re-route to get around deadfall, people like to do this instead of taking the time to make proper repairs. For what it is worth, Wasabi is clear. Prob the best bet for the weekend

    I hiked down from the top of the reserves to a little past the lone eagle split and it was snow free with one large dead fall just before the first meadow. The whole trail should be snow free and there seems to be a lot less deadfall this year. There was a crew from sedona riding it today so if you guys are on here chime in.
