Willow Creek Dual Sport–6/1/2013


Riders – David , John

Loop- 57 miles

David and Karen went camping at the top of a Willow Creek road. I told him him I would come up for a day ride.

We were a couple of weeks earlier than  last years first ride but optimistic because of this seasons low snow fall.

I parked at Cherry Creek and rode the bike to end of Willow Creek where David was camped.

Even the high trail was blocked  so we would have to work on an alternative route.


The trail over to the Dollar Hide Ridge was open and looked to have a couple of fresh cuts and old ruts in the snow banks.  However the Middle Fork trail was not passable and neither was the ridge trail all the way over to the road.

I spun out when trying to pop back on the trail.

We went back to this ATV track , dropped off the ridge and explored some old logging and mining roads.

Saddle on “ The Secret Trail” . It’s getting more beat in.


After I loaded up and left Cherry Creek I had to wait for the sheep to be unloaded. They were almost done and only took another 20 minutes for them to move the trucks.


Just another 100 yards was a wide spot  they could of parked and not blocked the road.
