Thot I recognized that place — so unique & Oregonesque. I love it. Gotta hit the NUT again this year & introduce Cyn to it. I wonder if the big bridge on D&T is still passable.

I'd heard that there were some difficult to pass places with high potential for unplanned swimming. I'd do some scouting or get good intel before bringing Cyn along.

ALL of these rides were very fun. (y)

I rode over about 20 logs to get here. There is no trail.

PA ~2000. You could only do this with skinny bars.

A couple years ago the caterpillars devastated the canopy and the undergrowth took off. This is on the stage coach road I use to access my mountain bike trails on my property in CT. The forest never totally recovered so I have to cut back the ferns once or twice every year now.

Rhododendron tunnels trails. It'll feel like a jungle when the warm weather settles in.

Don't slip on that one! Yikes
Slightly difference crossing, different year, same creek.

Second picture is the DIY trailside modification to cross it.

I waded across the river a few hundred yards downstream. It was less turbulent, but these two were a bit intimidated by the idea of crossing a chest high creek with a bike over their heads.

No actual jungle in my vicinity as technically I live in a high desert, but the mountain ranges out my backdoor have a cool microclimate that is similar to the Pacific Northwest at least.

The trail I’m standing on in the second picture largely follows the same pitch as the stream; waterfall included. 🤘

I live in an alpine forest, have lived in the PNW rain forest and southwest desert, but have only rode in a jungle once.

Finishing the day at Pinecrest early in the year can be... a bit of a butt clincher.

I am surprised none of those logs have been washed out.

I recently revisited the entrance to the creek in my 2nd-last pic, and you can't go that way any more. Piles of trees/logs brought from upstream.
