Note: With the hot dry and dusty conditions out there we should be packing fire extinguishers that have been inspected recently, be extra careful and we should contact the 3Rivers Ranger District (738-7700) to make sure that there are no Restrictions on because of high fire danger.
July 28th will be a ride on Owl mtn. again meet at the Orient Tavern at 0800 hrs for breakfast. Keith Fine is planning to be the lead on this ride also.
August 4th will be the Twin Sisters Ride that will not include Mack/King, if there are riders that want to ride Mack/King on this day remember that it has not been sawed out by us but I bet that it has been done by somebody else by now. Riders for the Twin Sisters Ride should be at the Noisy Waters gas and convenience store by 0800 hrs. Should plan for a long day. If there are those that want to peel off onto Mack/King feel free to join us at 0800 we will be parking in the Walpaloosie trailhead unless it is full and if it is we will move up the road a piece and park in the gravel pit like we have done before. THIS RIDE IS CANCELLED, WE WILL DISCUSS AN ALTERNATE DATE AT OUR NEXT MEETING AUGUST 8TH
August 11th will be the South Huckleberry ride, it will have a couple of new roads to ride on and will leave the trailhead at 0800hrs. The parking area is different this year, like always turn off of highway 20 on the road into the Canyon creek campground but don’t go into the campground (like always) the parking area will be just past the campground a short ways on the right I understand that if there isn’t enough parking along the roadside there, the road that turns off to the right at this location will go into a larger parking area.
