Mosquito Ridge The Hard Way

We wanted to ride from Wentworth Springs Road (near Uncle Tom's, right where the good stuff starts) to Mosquito Ridge Road utilizing as much dirt as possible. We dropped off Wentworth Springs Road to the north towards the Rubicon River on The Ellicott Trail (designated motorcycle trail)...apparently had not been ridden much.


A little more speed next time. Trail looks good.


This one was easy.


The log was bigger than it looks.


We figured the trail was fun, we'd give it a try.


Had to muscle it. It would have been tough to reverse this.


Made it.


Great trail.

Eleven Pines Road (in the distance) near the Rubicon river.

We jumped on Eleven Pines for 5-6 miles and then got back onto dirt (13N10).



Random.


Got REALLY fun. Sticky mud and snow.


Stayed interesting

Got lost, came out on FS#26...took that towards French Meadows Reserrvoir. Road is clear all the way to French Meadows.


Heading towards French Meadows. In route to Mosquito Ridge.
