wakin -- 039 can be accessed via the dirt road that leads up to Holman Flat. The trailhead is about a mile up the road. I'm going to be riding this today. We'll be in the main parking lot at tibble fork resevoir at 4:00pm. Come join us for a first hand tour. My riding buddy knows the area very well.

Shucks!!! I tried to make it, but got shut down in traffic on I-15 then my bike fell off of the trailer when I came screeching to a stop. All I could do was smile though after I saw the bike was ok. :thumbsup: I've been in good spirits lately. :awww: :devil:

The chase creek trailhead may be a good spot. Let me know.


Eric,

Could we meet at Chrevron on Hwy 6 or the turnoff to Diamond Fork From Hwy 6? Otherwise give directions to the trailhead.

wakin --
I rode trail 039 yesterday. Here's how to find the trailhead. From tibblefork ride straight up the dirt road towards mineral basin. I'd guess about 2 miles in, there is a campground on the left side with a restroom. This is the first campground with a restroom. Directly adjacent on the right side of the road is the trailhead. It's not marked and doesn't look like much of a trail. It's pretty steep and is at a sharp angle to the road. Go up here. There are two offshoots on the trail about a mile in. Neither one goes anywhere, so if you reach a deadend, turn around, go back, and look for the turnoff.

You're gonna want to know about this trail before riding it. After the first mile or so it gets steeper and steeper, full of baseball, softball, and basketball size rocks. Just when you think your through the rocks, you reach a bonefide rock garden. Big stuff! Then you just keep going up and up and up. Mondo technical trail. Lots of fun for the adrenaline junkie :thumbsup:. Once on top, you get into some well-behaved singletrack. Definately worth the effort.

Have fun. Let me know when you're going to try this. I'd be happy to go with and point out the trailhead.

Just noticed you had a YZ cam in your WR. How do you like it? How much of your low end did it kill?

Thanks!!!!

I would prefer that this thread stays on topic, so send me a pm. :thumbsup:

David- are you for sure going? I hope you can make it.

Eric- Thanks for actually going!!! It looks like everyone bailed on the morning portion of the ride. Would you guys just like to meet at the gas station? That would be the one closest to the canyon, eh? What time? Thanks for going guys!! :devil:

Chris -

Eric- Thanks for actually going!!!


My bike's not just a shiney trophy for oogling... I like to actually ride it :thumbsup:.

I can be at the Chevron off Hwy 6 at 12:00 noon. Remember this is not the Chevron going up to Hobble Creek. Get off on the Spanish fork Hwy 6 exit. The very first Chevron (no sure what side of the road) stop at. See ya tomorrow.

Isn't there a chevron right off of 15, then another near the mouth of the canyon?

:devil: I'm kinda starting to wonder about some of these guys. :awww: :lol:

BTW the ride this morning was a blast! I took a header off the trail and down the mountain a little ways, but that didn't stop me from having fun.

A little ways? Wes said the bike did 2 endovers & you were 20' below it :thumbsup:

Too bad we were horsing Corrie's bike back on the trail, I would have liked to have seen it.

Sorry about scaring you this morning Chris. After 5 miles on dirt road you probably thought that was all we were riding. It was a fun, somewhat sweaty ride!

Hey Eric- slight change in plans!! Another rider is going to meet me in the morning, so we'll go back to our other idea and I'll meet you by the sign/billboard up at the top of the paved road at 12:30. :thumbsup:
