Hiked with Lishkas and Buhls. Decent hike. Pretty falls at the end. Scrambled up a bit further closer to the falls.
Done with Lishkas and Buhls in car. No problem coming back down. Passenger side front mud flap pulled off while backing up during the last 1/4 of the trail trying to make room for vehicles coming up.
Done with Lishkas and Buhls in car. Made it to about 1/3 mile from the end. Went up Mary Murphy Mine road for about 1/4 mile and turned around on a wider part of the road. Started multi-point turn too close to a big rock. Should have gone all the way up to he mine where there’s a wide turn-around area. One obstacle just above last campsite was questionable. Probably could have made it with a good line and spotter. Would have made the rest of the trail w/o any problems. Track was paused from a turn out to Mary Murphy Mill while waiting for Lishka’s and Buhl’s.
Done with Bloods. Relatively long drive on Cedar Mtn Rd to get to Metberry Gulch trail. Go to bottom of Chicken Scratch Hill and turned around due to threatening weather. Bottomed out rear hitch and lost hitch cover on R path around Chicken Scratch Hill. Should’ve just gone straight down the hill. Bottomed out on center axle going up at the top. Should’ve angled a bit so front tires didn’t crest hill at the same time. Scraped bottom center going around Tippy Rock. Needed better tire placement.
Virg, Tyler, AJ, Lindsey, Al, Michelle. Entire hike snow covered. Very comfortable temp. Slow mostly due to Lindsey.
