We rode Maple Sally yesterday. If you're in the area, it would be a shame to miss it. Pineola Road is nice as well. I don't remember names or numbers off of the top of my head, but there are three roads on the west side of 181. The middle one is gated at the moment. The bottom road is accessed via Simpson Creek. The top road by Gingercake Acres. Old 105 is a nice jaunt as well.
Maple Sally was in nice shape and was even dusty in spots. All of the county (Caldwell County) maintained roads that we were on yesterday had been graded and in places had large amounts of fresh gravel dumped on them. They were mushy.
