    Rode up Mt Elden

    Me and some friends from work road up Mt Elden for the first time. Climbed 2000 ft in seven miles. The ride down made it worth it.

    Nice. That's a killer climb, but always worth it.

    Probably a reverse shuttle, when you ride up and then you get a ride in the truck back down.

    We rode Sunset trail, but some guy with weights in his bike saddlebags passed us on the way up and took the road back down. He said he had to go back to work. What an animal!

    I was up there Sat mid-day, went up Shultz/Climb 3 then down Sunset/Shultz. Ran into some pretty cool guys on my way up who were coming down looking for Shultz and needed some directions. Was that you guys?

    That's just 2000 ft and the road is 7 miles? It feels higher and the road feels shorter...probably me hallucinating because there was no oxygen to breath up there.

    It probably was us (we, for Rockycrysler). There was five in our party. We rode up the look out road, across Sunset Trail and back down Schultz Creek trail. You probably saw us at the top of Schultz Creek trail at the trail head. We were a bit lost.

    Sorry if I sound like I'm new to this forum, but I am.

    Cool, nice talking to you, I was the guy on the black Foes. Glad you had a fun time up there. It's definitely a great place to ride.

    No worries about the forums, it's all good...

    I was the Clydesdale on the 29er. I was a splended day of riding. (Nice bike, Dude)

    Has anyone ridden the 260 / highline trail lately? I rode it about three years ago and want to go again. I hear there are lots of downed trees across the trail. (The trail is in CosRay's book.)

    Clydesdale, LOL, yeah, I think I may fit that description as well!

    I've never done Highline, but would like to one of these days. Haven't really ridden the rim much except for part of the Cabin Loop a couple months back. We're headed to Los Burros over Labor Day so that should be fun.

    Los Burros is my favorite! I was just there Aug 1 and large parts of the trail was closed because of fire. The NFS website has a map http://www.fs.fed.us/r3/asnf/fire/fi...ormation.shtml that shows maps of the fire.
