Riders – Gary , John

Gary answered my call for someone to take me on Lava Mountain.
Parked at the Y Stop .We did the easy loop probably 25 miles of single track. Gary wanted to scout how a camping spot on Burnt Creek survived last year’s fire.

My first ride on Lava Mountain, sweet trail. The spur we took up doesn’t see much traffic, no whoops or ruts.

We only had a 2-3 miles of Lava Mountain left.

We had about a mile of road to connect to Bear Hole. It was almost all dirt , fast and fun.

The first section of of Cross Cut had some recent rain ruts  that  kept grabbing the tires.


The Chute on Cross Cut .  The trial ended a mile or so from here.
