I wanted to post a short report about our ride on the Pinochle trail. Water_Gremilin and I rode it this past Saturday and got an early start. We were at the trailhead by about 9 am and riding by 9:20. Trail was in pretty good shape and even the hill wasn't bad.
A little bit of mud here and there, mostly by the lake and some rocky sections of trail farther in. We rode about 28 miles in and the day just kept getting better and better. We saw about 20 caribou with some good bulls spotted, a few moose, a grizz and some sheep way off in the distance.
The ride out was quicker than going in and we didn't spot nearly as much game. Rode up the steep hill and made it to within 20-30 feet of the top when we hit a pretty deep rut that stopped us in our tracks. A little careful manuvering and up the hill we went. Got back to the truck around 6pm and were back on the road by 6:30. This is by far one of the most beautiful rides i've ever been on and i'm looking forward to riding there again real soon. Forgot my camera so I don't have any pics.
