Yes, there is at least one... me. I've driven and/or hiked every one of the roads on the east side, driving all the way through to Mineral Creek then one of the following:SAMBA wrote:At the very least, there must be some 4-wheelers in the group who could share some insights on what's out there.
I'm sure it would be fun, but it would depend on your definition of fun. If you enjoy very rough roads, plenty of sharp rocks, steep uphills & downhills, constant cow pies to avoid... well, you get the picture.SAMBA wrote:Would exploring the area be fun, and am I daft to even consider doing so on a mountain bike?
Dafty or drafty... with all the hot air spouted around these parts what else would you expect Randy?rwstorm wrote:Is it just me, or is it getting dafty in here?
Very much the same as the rough parts, the exception being you will encounter MANY cows and even more of their fresh excrement. (Hold your nose at times and don't ride through the pies and you'll survive.)SAMBA wrote:How does the terrain I've biked in the past compare to what I might encounter if I were to follow my fancy (lunacy)?
Yes, plenty of photos taken in the vicinity of the road but... very few and far between of the roads.SAMBA wrote:BTW, would any of the circa 500 photo sets you've posted on HAZ, or any of of the photo sets you posted on ChangePhoenix give me a hint of what I might encounter?
PM sent...SAMBA wrote:Thanks for any additional FEEDBACK you might send my way.
Same here... and I tried with Mac OS-X and Windows 7.SAMBA wrote:no luck with the videos.
I'm looking into it right now...SAMBA wrote:Got any insights?
Sierra Ancha? Aztec Peak area?SAMBA wrote:BTW, do you care to share some of details of your up-coming 3-day camping adventure, or do I just wait for your HAZ posts post-adventure?
the real reason for such an endeavor ;)SAMBA wrote: it could easily and quickly turn into "lick your wounds" recovery session at the Los Hermanos Lounge.
Since you would need to begin where the east-bound passing lane begins on the US 60 by Devil's Canyon you would be riding the opposite direction of the video... so skip to the last half of the video, as you'll need to ride a full 10 miles before reaching the nice smooth part in that video.SAMBA wrote:I did a quick review of both videos, and the "Mineral Creek to Rawhide Canyon 4-wheeling" looks like a "must do" ride to me. Beautiful vistas, spectacular rock formations, bikeable surface! What's not to like.
Just be forewarned... yes, you will encounter some relatively smooth parts similar to the beginning of the other video for the first few miles, but the rest will be just like this video. In other words, the farther you travel the more you will hike-a-bike.SAMBA wrote:What I saw in the few minutes of viewing the "Rawhide Canyon 4-wheeling" video, though, was a seemingly unrelenting stretch of rock riding (hiking?).
The last Flash player update was only about two weeks ago, so the player has only been dying regularly for the last couple days. I hope a new player comes out soon, because I prefer updating the player to rebooting several times a day.chumley wrote:@CannondaleKid
