    I had fun on that really steep hill we went up last time at RRB. You know the one where you have to turn your wheels toward a big drop off to get around that tree :oops: We've rode over on the PCB side multiple times, not sure how we never saw that part until this past time Lol.

    Oh yeah, we will find some with a little challenge.

    Try the creek ride with the hill climb up the mo rain afterward. It claimed an a-arm and skid plates last time.

    Or for a good challenge try going UP widow maker.

    I have plenty of batteries and memory sticks to film. In fact I bet we can pool 4 or 5 Garmens vib together and have them all synced from multiple angles - be like the matrix movies :D

    I have gone up that once ...


    On a Canned Ham 800 cc ATV



    In February 2006 right after Coal Creek opened that trail segment (really opened for a core drilling rig) .....


    Those ledges were only about 6” tall at that time and all Coal Creek had done was run a dozer down hill once and it was not packed down or stabilized yet. It must have been open less than a week as I laid down first tracks. Did I mention it was wet and muddy? Barely made it up and I was letting the horses eat.

    I’ll pull cable to go up that or go an alternate route to get to the same point now. It won’t hurt my feelings to miss a couple hundred feet of trail. Photos do not capture how ugly that section is (and maybe my mind is stuck on getting a Jeep sized vehicle up that) ....

    I been riding White Rock since the late 70's, trails have deteriorated badly, off road use has really caught on. I keep reminding myself to tread lightly when I can.

    You won’t get up it if it’s the same as it was when we were there.. maaaaybe if you did a lot of winching and didn’t care to tear up some s***. It was just too far gone.
