The yellow X means a closure. For example, the trail closes to motorized vehicles at that point.

There are waypoints for dealers by brand up and down the Great Divide. IF you click on the waypoint properties there will be an address and phone number and sometimes a URL to the store.

Great tracks. Never missed a turn. Spent a day riding the Oregon Trail, which is not part of the CDR. Not hard to figure, though. Can PM me if you want directions.

A really great tour.

No gas in Hachita

Hello all.

I used Cannonshot's tracks with great success on my S-N CDR ride recently.

Of note is there is no gas in Hachita anymore. This requires some careful planning and extra gas if you want to make it to Antelope Wells and back.

Also spots like Fleecer drop and Lava Mountain in MT are not doable S-N for a bike of any size. Going down would be doable but going up these trails S-N I would judge as impossible with anything but the lightest dirt bike.

I had great weather and did not encouter any areas that were impassable when wet but could definitely see that they would be with rain.

Best,
Andy

A big thank you to Cannonshot for posting this ride report and the gpx files. My son and I just did the northern half (down to Steamboat) using his tracks and had a blast. We only had a week to plan the trip and there is no way we could have done it without your help. Thanks!!!

Glad to hear you had a great trip and that the material proved helpful! The intent was to help out the next guy, and so far that has worked well.

Just did the CDR S to N and then back again on the pretty parts. Had to divert at Ovando to Seely on Hwy 200 to Hwy 83 due to bridge / culvert being washed out / repaired on the way up. On the way down, Ovando to Lincoln trail was closed about half way due to fire. Both diversions should be cleared up by now. Thanks to Cannonshot and Big Dog for posting the cords.

You would want a unit that can take 20 tracks. The Garmin 60/76 Cs or Csx work fine and have a nice capability to be powered off the bike using a power cable that has a durable power plug.

The more modern units take up to 200 tracks and will work well (62S, Oregon, Montana).

I use a 60Cs, 62S, and an Oregon 450T.

Take a look over in GPS 101 for a lot of discussions on the topic.

Don't forget that you will want background maps. That is another discussion you can find over there. There are free maps, routable maps, and topographic maps to think about. For my trip I used Garmin Topo and it worked fine.

Have a great riding year Cannonshot. I still have the ADV card you left in my truck last year in Grand Marais. Plan on being there next July. Maybe see you again. If you are headed down TX way, give me a shout, We have space at the Inn...

Thanks! That was a great time in Grand Marais! You put on a nice cookout. The Texas beers and Texas shaped chips really shaped the atmosphere.

I haven't gotten through your report but I was wondering what mapping program that is. Is that part of a Garmin package?
