near the former upper Childs crossing (both are now closed).

coming up Pine Mountain, looking North-West-ish:

crossing over to the other side of the mountain...

looking back more South-ish:

some rocky and steep climbs, along with the narrow shelf road and tight brush give the trail it's "moderate" rating.

then once you get to the top, there's a long BUMPY ride back down to Dugas road (and it would be insanely muddy if there had been any recent rain). the scenery and fun climb up made it worth it once for certain, but i also think once was enough for me! ;)

 

big thanks to @SonoranWanderer and @CAVU2 for pre-running and organizing this run!

Looks like a fun day!! Wish I would have been able to make it.  Would have much rather done this trip that sat at work all day dealing with sick people!
