Yah, that's the trail, mine road or miners road I seem to recall Bill Nichols call it. It looks worse now than it did the last time up a couple years ago.
Serious kudos to you guys for riding up on those big beasts.
I'll be going up it in a month from...hmm...yesterday! I'll be starting early in the AM before the heat becomes a factor.
BTW, "YOINKING" is one of my favorite passtimes
P.S. I see Dozer posted while I was typing so I guess the name of the trail is the "8 mile mine rd from hell, what the fuck were we thinking!"
