    Stonyford Area

    Some of the roads in the Stonyford area have developed character in the recent rains. Here is a private road that I grew up on. I always look forward to the creek crossing. Not currently passable.

    Should be interesting spring riding in Mendocino National Forest.

    Paul,
    I have spent many a day cruising the trails at Stonyford, staging at Nail Track and Davis Flats. I haven't been up there for a while. It looks like things have changed a bit with all this rain. That road really washed out.

    I went up this afternoon to check things out in person. There was a handful of riders on a Thursday. The paved road into Davis Flats is in a bit of jeopardy. There are distinct drops of 1-2 feet that span the distance of a car and trailor! I don't think the trails will suffer too much but I am sure going to take it easy on the access roads and OHV corridors!

    I was very glad my buddy forwarded those pix of the washout. It is very deceptive on the approach.

    "not passable"? How about "totally gone".

    All better now!


    Nothing a few rocks and some gravel can't cure!

    Remember to stay off the private roads!
