Nope, no Roundup, the trail itself will keep the noobs out, the poison oak, will keep everyone else out...

I was wondering which map that is shown on the last page....? I have a Hume Lake OHV map from 2010....It actually does NOT show a trail down verplank...I am not questioning the legality of it, just why it is shown on your map and not the one I have. When I rode the strom down to camp 4, I saw some circus workers...they gave me the map and questioned me riding down to the river...they were pussies by the way as it was not really a big deal.

That is the Hume Lake OHV map dated 2003, map revisions after that don't show 27E03 as motorized. Davis and Crabtree are the only official single track trails in the Hume Lake Ranger district. From what I have seen, 27E03 could be a really fun downhill only ST trail if it was cleared to connect with Davis and Crabtree...it has not been maintained in years which is probably why it was removed from the map. Over the years there have been many bikes stuck on that trail. Like Jimmy said in an earlier post, it's like the Bermuda Triangle of single track.

Verplank update...

Well... We got the bikes out today, started at 0600 finished at 1500.
Verplank is cursed stay away from there, you have been warned.
First it was Chips bike, dead battery, next JPs bike dead battery, then Bens bike, dead battery. It sapped the energy out of all 12 rescue team members. I think the place has an ancient Indian curse or something. Two years ago when I got stranded there my bikes battery died too. Fuck You Fucking Verplank!

Jimmy you are right, but it was the Japanese, not the Germans, that bombed Pearl Harbor...and in the end we did win.

Verplank will need an army to win. and maybe psychic to cleanse the demons.
