Also, I think McCrudy has the most capable bike (640 right?) to try Suicide grade, I think he should give it a try and report back.

That's all.
I have a book, written back in the 70s, about the old Mill Creek community and sawmills that existed at the turn of the century.
But no map, except a small hand-drawn-ish map in the book, drawn by the author, from one of the old residents' (likely fading) memory.

The map would be a bonus to my book (autographed by the authors!!)

There were still two building foundations up there, when I was up there last, maybe 8-10 years ago.
I had to walk my mountain bike up that steep-ass deteriorated grade then, but the ride at the top was fairly flat atop that ridge.
It'd be a fun trip, again.
