    ... and if we just ... Iron Mountain

    Wanted to share a video/slideshow of one of our local rides out here in San Diego. Recently we've faced similar trail sanitation with Skeggs but on a much larger scale. 90% of Iron Mountain was sanitized. Once was the most technical trail in SD and now we are only left with bits and pieces of it.

    Enjoy your trails while you still have them. Just saying...

    By the way, where is the most chunkiest ride in all of Norcal?

    PS. All credits to a buddy Gabriel K. who does wonders on video productions.

    I haven't ridden there but the Graeagle/Lakes Basin (North of Downieville) area looks ridiculous.

    Hit up the locals- went last year and if you don't know what you're getting into you can spend a lot of time pushing your bike uphill- but the descent down Mt Elwell is nothing short of amazing. Oh yah, be sure to bring your 6" + travel bike!

    Yeah, could have used more than a hardtail on Mt Elwel.

    I don't know about riding it on a Single Speed. Maybe you can do it.

    I've been to North Star and i plan to hit up Greagle but i don't have any info on Grouse Ridge trail nor am i familiar with it. I did a bit of research and It seems like it might be just for hiking?
