I was there two weeks ago.
Road from 23 to Shores lake is closed due to a bridge out. Campground at shores lake is closed. Only way to get there from pig trail is via White Rock Mountain Rd.

Nope, its open, the park ranger said the waters is turned off.

Thanks for the info on the bridge. We were planning on going to 23 via White Rock and Fang Creek.

Ok. The area by the lake had the road to the campground closed. The sign on the gate read "Closed for the season" or something like that. Plenty of primitive camping spots in the woods above the lake.
I might join u for a day on Saturday if I stop hacking my lungs out and manage to control my leaky nose.

Thinking about it, but I have to work until 5 on Friday. I was thinking about heading straight to Shore Lake, but if the roads are fubar, I'm not sure I want to be searching for a go-around after dark. I might head that way Saturday morning. The most important thing would be hitting Oark for a burger and pie

Maybe I'll meet you there at lunch time. Any idea of when you're wanting to hit Oark?

Shores Lake is pretty easy to find in the dark, slab the whole way, I think Rick managed it once in the dark and he doesn't even own a GPS.

We will probably depart Shores Lake around 9am head to Oark via WhiteRock Mountain where we will stop for a bit to site see. I am guessing 11:30, maybe later, due to a newbie fire road rider.

Just text me your ETA and we can wait at either place.

I have some prep work to do to the new bike and not much time to get it done. I'm going to plan on being at Oark between 11-11:30 on Saturday. I'll just wait for you there.

I'll text you if anything changes and will expect you to do the same from your end if something catastrophic comes up

My wife and I were riding out around there a few weeks ago and after trying to do the right thing and respect the "road closed" signs with no success we decided to at least ride down there and see how closed it was. It appears that the bridge had been done for quite a while, but for some reason they still had it blocked with boulders so no one could use it. We decided to be outlaws and ride our motorcycles across it since I couldn't really see a good reason for it to be closed. We're total rebels though.

I'm not sure about the campground thing though- you'll have to do some digging to figure that one out. It seems like a lot of things close down around here in the winter. I'm not sure if they close down because nobody uses them or if nobody uses them because they are closed down.

Maybe we'll see you guys out on the roads!

We be buggin'

I stopped by Amanda's on the way to say "hello".



On the way to Oark, that is . . .





Newner Loops were out in full force. All the other riders were jealous



Ain't she sexy?





We got to see a herd of elk. Very cool.





Jay's bike got tired



My mission for the night. Mission accomplished



Apparently there was whiskey, too. I never made it that far.



Ricky Bobby showed up sometime during the night.



The sunrise was beautiful.



Breakfast was beef tips and frog legs. No, really.



Again . . . that is one sexy beast



Thanks for the great time, guys!!
