......Because its still a little early in the season to start doing PCP..........uhh, the Pinecrest Peak Trail up highway 108, that is.
....Well, at least it is a little early to do the upper half of the trail, but the lower half was sweet and provided me with the fix I needed.
I did a little recon ride today to see how much snow was left on the road up to Pinecrest Peak. Since we have been having such a low snow fall year, I wanted to see how things were shaping up in the high country.
I ended up walking through snow about a mile before the Trail of the Gargoyles turn-off on Herring Creek road, decided I didn't feel like hiking 4 more miles through the snow up to the peak, and turned around and hit the lower half of the trail from the fire road turn off near Fiddler's Green.
The trail was a blast as always.
There were a few new trees down, but otherwise the trail was in great condition and snow free. Pretty rare for April.
Sorry, no pics from today's ride.....I forgot to charge the battery of the digi.
Here's a few from a couple days ago on the mysterious "Goat Trail".....at least that is what a buddy of mine likes to call it.
This is an awesome singletrack along a local river. Its not too hard to figure out where its at from the pictures..........if you know the area.
The reservoir is really low for this time of year:
Looking down river, you can see the secret lab where the government is building a device to turn people into a race of super zombies that can be easily controlled!.........Oh wait, they already did that with the television. Maybe its just a hydroelectric plant.......I get confused somtimes:
Although I usually ride my fully rigid 29er 3-speed everywhere and love it, I still think suspension has its place.............for instance, the suspension cable on this bridge allowed me to cross the river in ease and comfort:
If you get lost, go on down to green river:
