Aside from the 1 rocky hill it was a lovely trail. I rode Amy's bike down it just to make sure she would be able to shift and brake for the entire weekend.

Going down 434 is not too bad, going up can be, back during March moto madness i went up and down it several times on my DR650, no problem, 3 weeks later i went up and it was rough, we had allot of rain, seemed as if the rock was sticking up more due to erosion from the rain.
The left hand track going up the rocks has always been the best line, aside from the one rocky spot, the trail is a nice one, i have seen plenty of carnage in that rocky spot, including a KLR hanging off the edge of the right hand rocky side, we managed to get it out, via downhill, it took 4 of us to wrestle the bike downhill, the guy rode the bike the rest of the weekend.

Thanks for sharing Mike!!

I suspected while we were on FS81 that there must be a FS81 and also a trail 81.
Added to the list for the next trip down. Got a few other ADV members kicking around the idea of an early September trip.
I'm pushing for fall when the leaves are peaking. Mid to late October??
