Can't vouch for Indian Dick Rd., but FH7 was pretty easy on my fully loaded DL650 running Continental Trail Attacks. Just pay attention to the signage and/or your GPS.

Cool, thanks for the low-down on FH7. Does appear to be a more straight forward route as opposed to I.D. Rd / Co M1 and the tangled mess it becomes. Planned on stopping by the Forest Service office in Covelo for some extra info. Got my maps and that silly GPS thing ready to go. I am looking to get Lost, just not stranded.

Ready for a nice ride and then watching some SCCA racing at Thunderhill.

Hi timmie414, could you tell me where to get Forest Service and/or BLM maps for our area( Humboldt Co. ) I have been using AAA maps for Northern Calif. which arent too bad but I belive FS or BLM would help also. I have GPS but not the smarts to use it. Thanks

I have been piecing together a route using google maps and from the Forest Service maps online:
http://www.fs.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsinternet/!ut/p/c5/04_SB8K8xLLM9MSSzPy8xBz9CP0os3gjAwhwtDDw9_AI8zPwhQ oY6IeDdGCqCPOBqwDLG-AAjgb6fh75uan6BdnZaY6OiooA1tkqlQ!!/dl3/d3/L2dJQSEvUUt3QS9ZQnZ3LzZfMjAwMDAwMDBBODBPSEhWTjJNMD AwMDAwMDA!/?navtype=BROWSEBYSUBJECT&cid=fsbdev3_004476&navid=360000000000000&pnavid=null&ss=110508&position=Feature.Html&ttype=detail&pname=Mendocino%20National%20Forest-%20Maps
The Forest Service map online is very funky so I am hoping to get something better at the field office. I will be sure to let you know what I find out WRC51. My use of GPS is reserved for finding gas stations when desperation sets in and also latitude and longitude coordinates in case of emergency. The rest of the time it is powered down and i run on gut instincts and scribbled down notes. HA. Too many stories of people blindly following their GPS directions into the middle of nowhere.

Really hard to be motivated here at work today when I know there are curves and adventure to be had tomorrow.

Tried to get a l;ittle ride in before the forecasted rain we are are supposed to get. Stopped and picked up a little lunch and headed for my favorite local ride, Bunker Hill. But instead of going straight across it I decided to cut off to the West at the Upper Bear Creek split. I havent been on this road for maybe 25 years and that was in a 4x4, in the rain and dark.

Followed the road down maybe 3-4 miles and stopped at this bridge to have lunch, Iam just amazed at all of the beautiful places I have found in my short time up here. As I said earlier the last time on this road my father in law and I where trying to get out of their ranch which is probably 10 or so miles past here.

After lunch I continued on but only for a few more miles before stopping here. The road that goes to the left is the one that leads to their ranch but I know that you cross and few private ranches and some other property that is owned by large logging companies. Anyway I thought it might be hard to explain what I was doing out there on private property.*EDIT* I did talk to my father in law and he said it probably would have been OK to go in a little farther. Next time

This one picture at a time is a drag. Turned around and headed out the same way, still a beautiful area to ride in.
