      rode 5 miles north of HWY 69 to check this out. The trail is easy enough to follow without navigation as there are a lot of cairns in place. Trail...

      Trail is not well maintained and is grown over in some parts. This trail is obviously not traveled very much.

       Fun challenging trail, not for beginners. Trail is pretty good untill after the green gate, then it has lots of catclaws. I cut back plenty but still needs some more work. Easy to loose the trail due to the cow paths so be aware and look ahead for karens. Stop at the delapated rock cabin then head back. Not worth ridding north of the cabin, it's all dirt road.
