Gorges State Park to Bad Creek

Just rode from Gorges State Park down to Bad Creek, if you get the chance to do this ride it is quite exhilarating. Several creek crossings, not for the faint of heart.

I rode through there Sunday morn. Had the place to myself pretty much.
It has gotten kinda grown up in there so its harder to see around the corners.You never know when you might meet a truck or something!

Not to many people know the gate at the GORGES parking lot is open year round. Talked with the rangers who said there is not much traffic. I will go again and explore different roads

Google maps doesn't show any roads connecting the two, could you describe your route for me?!?

Not really a route this time of year,one way in,ride to the gate,turn around and come back out.There is one road off of the main road that goes down to the lake. When the other section of Badcreek is open (hunting season) you can go through and come out on 130 just above White water falls.

Actually we spoke to two Rangers at the Gorges park who told us it was open to bad creek, they we not "pissed off" they were very encouraging and even gave us the contact info for the other rangers if there was any questions. Maybe there is more than one way across.
