RBT trailhead at Highway 285.



RBT - east side of Highway 285 at 1.1 miles.

Further up the trail



Silver Cr Rd at 4 miles.



Marshall Pass Rd at 6 miles.

Rick,

I just put on the chain saw mount on the bike this week, cleaned and fired up the chainsaw and we are ready to start clearing our 100 mile square area that we take care of each year.

Is there much public land around Del Norte? From the road it looks to be a mix of farm land and pasture.

There definite is once you get far enough west. Find Hot Creek, White mountain, and Emperado lake. Bring a lunch. You'll need it.
