What time are you guys planning on being up there Sunday? I'm thinking of just meeting you up there and cutting it up then. If it's manageable in size and the trail isn't iffy for me hauling it back down, then I'll load it up. Otherwise, I'll just clear it out of the way.

I'm still thinking of making a trip up there this afternoon, so I'll post back tonight if I did or didn't make it out there and the status.

If I don't make it out there, I'll let you know and follow you out there tomorrow morning. If I end up going out tomorrow, I'll PM you my home and cell numbers tonight and then plan to meet up with you as you go by on the highway again like I did last time.

Trail is clear. Someone beat us to it. There's just enough room to squeeze through.

So, where are the 3 "challenges" that Jerry mentioned in comparison to the tree (we turned around at the tree)? That's a fun road! My wife had to spot me across that bolder. Coming back down was kind of scary. It's a weird feeling to be leaning over to the right while traversing a bolder on the left and having the left rear wheel come up in the air. Very "floaty" feeling. I decided to play it save since I'm not experienced in that and backed down over it to keep the wheels on the ground!

Hey, if your group wants to do any snow wheelin', continue on Silver Fork Rd a few more miles until you come to the first right (sign says to Girard Creek). It crosses the river immediately and will dump you out on Silver Fork Road up closer to the top. After about 4 or 5 miles, you will get into the patches of snow. Road is paved for the first couple of miles and then it's a typical easy forest road.

On the way up.


On the way down.


Tire in the air.
