    Yes, we've seen Caribou back there and on our trip in May the guy coming out behind us said he saw a herd cross the trail after we passed.

    All clear. We went up there two weeks ago (May 22) and there was only a little bit of snow left in the shady spots and a bit in the river valley but all easily negotiated. We rode all the way to the East Boulder Creek valley split and somewhat up the valley. The swamp just before the river is in pretty good shape. The first swamp you encounter from the parking lot was the most challenging part of the trail. Once we got across that, it was cake.

    I did the Pinochle to Eureka run this winter, and usually do part of it every summer. I have never had enough time to go all the way though.

    Pinochle to Puritan is really interesting. I still think pinochle to eureka is a more feasible venture. How I'd love to ride that route. Ride light, buncha gas, beer for the evenings, great camp fires, a technical and challenging trail. Oh man...... I like that idea.

    I've been really far back in pinochle but the eureka connection still eludes me. I've been close, oh so close, still day trips with riding back to the pinochle trailhead at night doesn't provide enough time.

    The history of the area, the game, the challenge, the gold, the scenery, all gets me going. Pinochle is my favorite trail by far, and I'd love to ride into the head waters of the lil nel up monument to the lodge from Pinochle. That is my epic adventure in the making.

    I have done this in the past on snow machine - see archives for thread. I would imagine it could be pretty exciting in the summer on a 4-wheeler or similar!!!! It took all day and several hours into the night.

    its impossible, this has been asked many many times, its a bad rock waterfall and narrow canyon. I have hiked it also and its def not atv'able and im all about making connections. try belanger pass to caribou creek to horsepasture pass, all i can say is bring lots of fuel and plan on 4 days.
