I'm guessing by the videos lots of dirt/dust blowing around!!! I'll probably rough it in the SUV with seats down int he back and some padding...LOL

What's an average loop like, will 70 miles for fuel be good to play before being back at the vehicle? Not sure what everyone is bringing I assume by the videos smaller bikes but I better ask with this group you never can tell.

Yes on little bikes. Big dual sporters will have a hard time. Loops are relatively short to get back to fuel. Probably the longest will be about 50 to 60.

If any of you guys like to fish there is trophy trout fishing down in the black canyon, just a short, steep hike away.

This is also a great area for kids, there is a special closed in area just for the kiddos as well as a little track that the youngsters will love.

It is awesome down there, especially if someone pays for the horses to pack the raft down..Gunny Gorge during the hatch is almost like cheating for fishing! Good rapids too!

I didn't know there were Thursday night rides. What time and where do you usually ride from?

Those north slope snow and mud sections make my butt pucker.
