Some photos of when the road was washed out........

Howdy All,

These were taken about a year after the last big wash out, a couple of years later it was washed out so bad you couldn't ride the edge as we did here.

I am on the Yellow DRZ, my friend Jack is on the White XT.








After they blocked the south end of the road it didn't take long before the old road bed was almost completely washed away, many trees were fallen on the road way, the muddy bypasses around the big fallen trees were a real mofoer to get around.







Some trees were easier to go under rather then over or around.


The MLH is now pretty much a dirt freeway, there was a time when it was a real ADV ride.

Dave,

Thanks for the history lesson & pictures. Those washout pictures are a lot like the ones I've taken of the Griptwister over on the Olympic Peninsula.

Nice Ride

Right on man!

I just came across this, and really like that ride. Wish there was a bit more dirt though! I am new to the area and found it last summer. I cannot wait to explore the NF way more this summer.

Always wished the Monte Cristo gate sign said 'Motorcycles OK'.
And the old road hooked into the unmapped Galena trail near Index.
That would be cool.
