Eek Heads up-FYI

Last weekend I rode the section-with several buddies-dropping down off Walker Mtn-going east. This is off US-52 and near I-77, just north of Wytheville and south of Bland, VA.

Apparently the winter's snow and ice was hard on the small pines and they are down on the trail or leaning into the trail. It is passable, but is a challenging section.

Also, Hogback Ridge section-the water holes were full and the surface very slippery-but huge fun!

Big Walker was super narrow and overgrown when I rode it in the summer - glad to hear yall were able to pass it. Hogback was one of my favorites as well.

What size bike were you on? Glad to hear folks are out riding.

I am going to add a bunch of alternative routes to the BRT this spring.

I was riding my WR250R, but others were on WR250Rs, KLX250, XT250, DR350s, DR650s, KLR650, H440, H650, KTM990.

The KTM990 rider went home before riding the east section, but have ridden it too!

Nice - good cross section of bikes. I have seen some riders on 990's that make it look like a 250 2 stroke

Any pictures from the trip?

Apparently I received the files close to two weeks ago, but gmail marked it as spam

So I moved it into the inbox and marked it as extremely important

Can't wait to get up and check these trails out!

One of many mudholes on Hogback Ridge:



And a shot dropping off Walker Mtn:
