One of the smoother sections.

I really need a helmet mount for the GoPro.

What section were you on, Tim? I used to go up there and ride sections 1, 2, and 3 when I pretended I was a mountain biker. There are some nasty climbs, downhills, and switchbacks up there. I actually kind of miss it.....but not much.

I think it is Pinhoti 1. Here is the route...

Not really sure if it was the Bear Creek Trail or Pinhoti, or a combination of the two but it was the section from mile 32 to 36. The beginning from Barnes Creek is flat and gorgeous. The last 1.5 miles was rooted and rocky with some hike-a-bike. I can only do so much on a bike without suspension.

Here is the actual ride...

The area is rugged and tough but I try to stop often and just look around, remind myself what a gorgeous area this is right near home.

Beautiful pictures and video, TimH. Keep posting. The stops look like my kind of oddball remote places for long summer rides. I have taken my road bike down too many obscure gravel roads, and this is giving me ideas.

Ha ha, me too. The more out of the way, the better.

Here is part of the gravel experience including the climb up Mill Creek Rd.

I can't figure out why Youtube sometimes switches to low resolution but the vid is 1080p.
