Man, I wish I could! My sister and her family will be in town and we'll be boating. Just not enough room in the Jeep for everyone. :shaking:

It's a great time to run Fordyce, the water level is below 60cfs (SUPER low!) and will be through Tuesday the 7th. I made a quick run last week -Eagle Lakes through Committee - and the trail was great. The flow was running just over 200 cfs when we went through. The water was about 6" above the bottom of my doors ... glad they were on!

Hope you can get out and have some fun. Maybe next time.

I can't tell you how jealous I am that your backyard is Fordyce Trail.

Rage, no plans just yet. I'll let you know if we put something together. How far are you willing to drive. Check out Niagara Rim Trail off hwy 108 past Strawberry. Nothing hardcore but fun. I think it's three hours from my location.

Friday and Saturday nights are bad for me, but Sunday would be cool for anything. Also if you're going to be up in my neck of the woods I can get you those wheels then!

Still new to everything and havnt personally run a single trail up here so I wouldnt be the guy you'd want to plan anything. Ill still meet you wherever you end up within 100 miles for the wheels tho. Keep me posted if you find a cool trail or get some more ppl together and Ill still be down to tag along.

i like the sound of the trail that i had read about it say its pretty ruff at times and goes up like 4000 ft of elevation could be interesting

Some of us are still thinking about running deer creek. Very close to Barney Riley. Check out the nor-cal meet and greet thread.
