Hogsback isn't that bad, but it is too rough to be easy and not rough enough to be fun.

I live out by Dairyville.

Hahaha, If your in a hurry to get back down the mountain they are "short cuts" , they are spur roads and my intent for exploring them was for the time saving they would be doing me as I always get late starts and try to be home by dinner time so I'm on the "timer" a lot. these spur roads cut out a lot of the zig-zag and do almost a strait shot across many of the S-bends in the main road.

Rode that road 3 times last year and had a blast each time, Bike seems to like it a little better if you ride it a little faster but it's taken a toll on my arms. Fighting some tendenitus now. It's good stuff. Plan to do more exploring in that area this year.

Spur Roads

If your a local, those "spur roads" are a favorite riding area known as "The Bowl" the dirt bike riders go out there and park. there is a "bowl" right where they park. It is at the start of colyear springs road.

And its official. If Redog1 says Hogs Back road is "not that bad." then you better be hard core. because He is! Mr. military pass.

I appreciate the praise or sarcasm whichever that is Hop-Sing but I'm no authority on anything but myself. , amusing though.

It's praise, when I first meet you it only took me about ten miles to see you are not a rookie. you where coming in on 36 from the coast with a friend. Knoobie tires and loaded with camping gear. I had never seen anyone trust Knoobies on the pavement like it before.
Then after riding around Mt Shasta with you and you being bummed because the group missed the Military pass road that we had heard was near impassable. What does Redog1 do, camp out and try again in the morning. So yea the Redog1 can ride.

Nice avatar Hop-Sing, laughing my ass off!

So, anybody up for Cohassat to Red Bluff via the Ponderosa Friday? Thinking of getting out of work early and be up at the Cohassat store around 11:00, weather looks to be upper 70's and I'm tired of reading about everyone else riding and me not.

And what would the Ponderosa be without the Hop-Sing? Drag your butt down and we will avoid the Demon Hogsback and go out through Plum Creek Road. Or if you prefer I'll be your Hogsback Huckelberry.

About how long does it take you to go through?
do you pop out Plum creek and just take the pavement back home or?

P.S. (Hop-Sing) thanks for the freebee invitation to the trials event.

But here's me on Military Pass Road that day.


I hate sand!

A lot of miles for me on that bike with knobbies on it. I know my limits and trust the bike. I was pushing to the edge of the limits with the load I had when you were following me. My buddy Lionsroaar is a much better rider than I am.

Takes me about 6 hours, steady pace with stopping for pics. Can't remember how many miles, it's in one of my RR's on the ride. I think around 140. Ponderosa does hit Plum Creek Rd.

Took a short rude yesterday solo. My route was Hwy 32 to Crown Point rd to Doe Mill rd to Garland/Doe Mill down to Butte Creek then back up to Magalia and Powelton Rd. down the Skyway to Nimshew and then down Centervill rd and back home. A 47 mile round trip.

The ATK is a real runner and I now have figured out I have a lot of bike for the trails. I'm learning to ride differently now I don't have 450#'s to contend with......lol

Lots if great scenery.....

This is somewhere on Doe Mill




These shots are at the Butte Creek bridge





This is on Centerville rd up high after jumping off Nimshew rd. lots of nice wild flowers and a great view of the valley

Glad to hear this is happening. Will it be at the same place as last year. If so, for those of us not riding a trials bike and hiking to view the action at some of the higher locations, will you have oxygen available? Climbing those hills in full riding gear is hard on an old guy!

I happened on the activity by chance last year when I was out for a ride. I only observed the action at a couple of sections. Other than completely destroying any illusions I had about pocessing off-road riding skills it was a very interesting, entertaining, and inspiring event to watch. I hope to make it out again this year.
