Any report would be great.

Yeah, we rode up from Erskine/Willow Gulch to Long Canyon to Dry Meadow. Sweet singletrack! Several downed trees on top, but most had bypasses.



The Grinch at a Piutes squid filter!

Then met a couple of guys coming up behind us and learned of a singletrack to the east they led us to. It was sweet until we caught up to the same 2 riders at a big-ass tree across the trail.


2nd downed tree in the background

It took all four of us a bit to help the tree further down the steep hill & unblock the trail. City Nav. shows it as an "unpaved road", but its clearly & delightfully singletrack.

We cleared a few trails (300+ trees) but every wind storm will bring down more trees....carry a saw.
Gates?!? We didn't see no stinkin' gates!

Most all snow is gone, but lotsa downed trees. Yeah after this weekend, a saw would be a good idea. Maybe the 21" Corona pruning saw & scabbard?

We continued down to Piutes Mtn Road and turned west instead of east. We could not find a cabin with a jungle-black Tacoma out front anywhere. A red truck with dirt bikes pulled up & rolled the windows down. The driver looked familiar, but I could not place where. He asked me if the Beta was mine & said he had met me before somewhere & talked about the Beta. But we could not figure out when/where. Weird.

However, he knew where Nate's cabin was AND had just seen the dark Tacoma parked in front! We headed east with a better description, and met Jungle & Burmshot on their bikes just in front of Nates. Burmshot took us up to his cabin for a quick look & a gps track to the front door.

Rode some side trails with Burmshot & Jungle as they headed towards a lookout, and then split up & rode back to k'ville. Forgot to pull the camera out when the 4 of us were together. D'OH!!!



However, I did get this shot of Lake Isabella on the way back to camp.

While we were Piuting, the k'ville clearing filled with So.Cal High-School MtnBike Race crowd and their 12 porto-potties.

Max was guarding camp & Perry returned from his ride.


Catfish ...

Mike Im sure there will more opportunities for the another ride/cerveza/carne asada
You guys plan it just let me know when? We can ride from your cabin or wherever the ride starts
Id say each loco pitch in 7 bucks, we can put a can by the grill / table no one is counting
Maybe Scotty can bring his home made cerveza and Jungleman his monkey from Costa Rica to hand out the plates
notmybikemodelname can bring some of those chicken pies to tie us up for the day.... those where good.
Let me know how many riders will be showing up and I will get the carne/chicken/beans/rice nopalitos/cebollitas grilling!
Besides riding grilling is what I love to do. So round up the boys!
month of June sometime

Riders on the Green Hill 4/13/2013

Yes. there really IS a green hill.....


I made it to camp Friday @ 1600, Catfish got us a great spot under a big oak tree. I unloaded the bike, tied Max and geared up to go for a solo ride up the creek and into the gulch. I thought I might see theGrinch & Catfish coming down the mountain....









it was a nice afternoon for a ride!

I was testing out the new chain guide I just installed.

the native Americans were here.



Spring has sprung on the mountain.

whoops! the bike took a nap.



this reminds me of the day back in December when Jungle led us to the top of the mountain and it got dark before the decent.







Friday night!

Saturday coming up next.....
