OK! It's that time of the year where I make my annual pilgrimage to The Hells Canyon gathering.  Last year I did this ride up with one individual which was a last minute impromptu.


I am inviditng folks to ride calong with me this year to a GREAT family oriented gathering, where numerous Day rides will take place and gregarious fire-side bantering will be ensue during the evenings.  

Here's the link, if your wondering:

I will ride mostly dirt all the way around along some beautiful ridgelines.  My pace will not be that of a race but a decent clip,  Ewood rode with me last year and knows it's a great ride.  This year because it's a bit drier and warmer I'll be doing a stopover at " The Monastery of St Gertrude" out of Cottonwood and the Goeckner Viewpoint (time permiting).  Camping at Waha Lake.

I would also like to drop down to the Historic Kirkwood Ranch in Hells Canyon (this is a 5 mile atv trail in, again time permiting).  Return trip will be via FS 39, Hess road and up the Kleinschmidt.

Again, your more than welcome to peel off earlier if you desire because I know some can't manage the time, but!  I don't do this much and will assure you it's a very beautiful experience.


There may be a section that would be considered level 3, but overall a level 1-2 well probably 2.
