    First avy (with the bypass):
    N 39°30'23.428'' W 105°49'6.049''
    Second avy (just some snow you have to cross, would give a truck some trouble, SxS were crossing it without too much trouble):

    On the topic, what are folks' recommendations for a modest chainsaw? I live in suburbia, so I don't need one every other week, so it'll have to deal well with not being used for 3-6 months at a time. Don't figure I'll ever be cutting anything much over 12".

    I wouldn't get anything smaller than 40cc and 16" bar. You'll end up stuck behind a downed tree bigger than 12" at some point.

    I'm partial to Husqvarna, but Stihl is good too. They're worth the extra money over the cheap brands.

    I'm not going to rely on a battery powered chainsaw to get me off the trail. :tinfoilhat:

    Also, while we're on the subject. If you want something for emergencies to keep in your truck and don't want to deal with a chainsaw, ditch the EAF fiskars axe and get one of these, or a silky big boy.

    https://www.amazon.com/Samurai-Ichi...ocphy=9028876&hvtargid=pla-350428273871&psc=1

    I carry one of these every time I ride the dirtbike, and have cut some surprisingly large trees with them. It takes a little effort, but you can get through most any downed tree you'll come across in this state.

    I love log hopping, but that's certainly not possible on every log I come across.

    And unfortunately, a lot of trail users will choose to go around anyways.

    Witnessed some chainsaw-related full send as a kid, prime example: grew up in Fairbanks, AK, and my dad and I would hunt moose on the upper Chena river. We had a zodiac inflatable with an outboard motor that we used to get up the river. Frequently at the beginning of the summer you’d go up river and find trees down across the river. Sometimes, if they were semi-submerged, my dad would just motor up, give it a quick look, float down a bit, then gun it to jump the log (in a soft-bottom inflatable mind you). If it was above the surface, on more than one occasion he had me run the motor to keep it nosed up against the log, while he stood with one foot on the boat, other foot on the log, and chainsawed through the log. In an inflatable boat. I wonder some times what shit he got up to when I wasn’t around.

    I wouldn't either.
    Much better to use your truck.

    I have both a folding hand-saw as well as a pocket chainsaw that I carry when mountain biking up at higher elevations. I also have these with me in my truck in addition to a Pulaski.

    I use mine almost everyday. Cuts through 12-16” power poles like butter with a carbide chain. Batteries last a long time.
