    Default O'Brien Creek Road question

    Does anyone know the grade of the dirt road descending into the O'Brien Creek area? I'm finishing up my writeup on this location and I thought the information would be useful for some folks.

    Thanks!

    Its dang steep. I would guess the top 200' at 15% and the last 100-150' at 25%. I was looking for a picture and ran across this... Pretty neat. Check out the dude hanging on the crane/pole, dangling over the side...

    I think the standard height per "deck" on a trestle is 16' So the top of the grade is about 65-70+' above the creek.
