Meeting up at Sprouts at 94th and Shea at 8am, wheels up at 8:30. Driving past Baja about 8:45.

We're going to try and open up new trail near cattle corral just past Mt. Ord run. Going to take the trail out to Roosevelt lake, and depending on time take Apache trail for a scenic route.

Phil scouted trail and thinks should require little digging at entrance then clear.

Isn't that the road that after it climbs up over some hills it drops off and follows Slate Creek over to 188? If that's it, it was once a good short cut to Roosevelt Lake. My stepdad took it all the time in a 1960 Chevy 1/2 ton 4x2 pulling a fishing boat. I'm sure it's deteriorated over the years. Good luck on the run. Sorry I missed it.

As the only one who got to see the other side of the wash, I can say that it's overgrown, but not impassable. I got some decent pin striping covering the two miles to the creek bed. Only two or three real obstacles between the wash and the creek bed. I definitely want to run it the other way to see what the rest of the trail looks like. The part I saw had some great views!

I came across two hunters who could barely believe that I made it across the wash.

Are the Road Closed signs down on the west side? I think it was even boarded up or a gate was there. FR26 was closed at the west side years ago after a flash flood wiped out one section. We used to go on 26 when I was real young...in our Mazda 4WD MPV.
