I am going to try to clear my morning calander for that Fri. I will know tomarrow. I do not know if dishpan is closed. Holcomb creek is closed. I will do whatever trails you all want. I gave some suggestions above. We have to remember that TTORA and a group from FJ cruisers are all claiming that they will be there. Hence, I would think that the common run trails: GM, BUll, Dish(if Open)and white mountain will get crowded on Sat. If a group of us gets there early on fri we should be able to run all the common trails, including Burnt flat( not many people go there) and Jacoby( considered to easy by many TTORA members) without crowds.
Rattlesnake and HB have alot of options and trails involved. The few times I have run these trails I have not seen too many people. I think KJ Steve was up there a few weeks ago. I wonder if he saw much traffic? Hence, this may be a good area to explore for Sat as it could take the whole day. We could go in one of three ways from BB. I had to go to my trail books to look up info on going in this way. We could do trails from BB to HB and the pontiac Sluice and then hit the trail area for Rattlesnake. It is easy to get off the beaten path there. We could go to Pioneer town for lunch. If you have never been there, it is worth a look. Then come back through Rattlesnake to 247 and take the roads back to BB. These are just thoughts and options. I am familiar with most of the area and would be happy to help with any concerns. I look forward to other peoples input. As far as starting on Cleghorn and taking trails across, I will pass.
Just like disneyland. Trying to decide which ride to do first and how to avoid the crowds.
I dont mind doing the trails on the east side (HB, RC) on saturday, but what about friday? I want to try to do GM sometime. Maybe friday we could do GM, intro to JB, then ? Or Dishpan? Where is the gatekeeper for JB, east or west side? If this is representative of worst case, I'd like to take a look at it. What about NotAMog and SteveB?
So, if were doing the east side trails on saturday, which way are heading up there on friday?
Can someone verify if dishpan is open? I'd like to consider it.
Where is white mountain, and how is it?
