Not the Campaign Trail–Thorn Creek 4/19/2015



Trail Boss – Spode Daddy

Riders – Chad , Bob

Loop ~ 55 miles

Forth ride in a row out of Thorn Creek,  each one a a different variation.
Hadn’t ridden the system in years , probably one of the reasons it has been so fun.

This ride I wanted to ride Peg Leg to Pine Creek then Dry Creek & Picasso to Steam Boat.

Fix’n to drop down the back side of Easter.

I wanted to ride Peg Leg ( fun trail !) then 660 along the ridge to the top of Pine Creek.
Some where we missed a the junction / took a wrong turn.


Me and Bob on Peg Leg.


Followed a trail that was beaten in  but there was a spot that hadn’t been cleared in while.
We had to back track then hook up with the middle of Pine Creek.

Lunch at the Pine Creek * Dry Creek junction.
After lunch I wanted to ride Dry Creek- Picasso down to the Steam Boat area, but the logging had obliterated
the trails , could find lots of remnants but they quickly disappeared.  Probably wasted an hour.

Took the road over to the Steam Boat ATV trail, it had been logged but was still OK for dirt bikes.
At one intersection with a road logs were stacked in front of the trail, but they left a sliver to get our bikes
