Hatfield McCoy Apr. 15-16

Just wanted to see how those who were going down to HFM faired on the trails?

I rode Friday at Gilbert and Saturday at Logan and logged around 150 miles total. Both rides were great, and I took some great video and pictures too. Here is a quick breakdown of the highlights:

Rockhouse: Completed all the B/R trails.. 94/95/96. Didn't think that they were that bad. However, Black 91 is the real deal IMO. I have some great video of my XX and my buddy's LTZ going up the super rocky hill on 91. The 700 dominated. Found some playgrounds too with some decent hillclimbs. Also, out of six trips, finally saw my first ranger down there. They stopped our group and asked for our permits. haha.

Bearwallow: After it rained all night and throughout the day, the trails were wet, muddy, and rocky. Fun. I actually enjoyed this trailhead better than Gilbert. I think it's more challenging. We hit three black trails in a row.. 91, 69, and 94. 94 was closed but we did it anyways. We saw why 94 was closed at the top, so we went back using a single track trail and that was a blast.. very technical and narrow. Also, we went down B/R trail 88 and 59.. 59 is the big cliff, and honestly, I was nervous going down it. Worked out nice though.

All in all, a great time and no breakdowns. 700xx ftw! Super impressed with it.

I was at rockhouse(gilbert) saturday the 16th with mikey(trx700xxx). It was really wet but most of us had raingear and was able to stay dry. we had some older guys with us and they wanted to avoid the harder trails while it was so wet. but we had a decent ride anyway. I live close to the trails so it wasnt too bad

We went to Pinnacle Creek on thursday and i went up trail 94. It was very rocky and steep but the xx went up with ease. Then my dad went up on his sportsman 850 and I'm surprised he even tryed it because it is quite intimidating from the bottom. Trail 14 is a very fast trail that I went 5th gear WOT and probaby the most fun I have ever had on the xx. I probably went back and forth 3 times just because of the rush I got. Then friday we went back to the rockhouse and got perfect weather. Trail 93 was very steep in the beggining but once up top the view is amazing. Then we went to a spot east of trail 24 where there is a sweet hillclimb and horseshoe climb. Saturday I met up with quadmonkey700xx and road a bit but it rained so a couple of us went back early. The only damage to the xx occured when my dad backed into me in the gas station and broke my front bumper. Can't wait for next year!!
