Erosion can really change a trail, and this trail had really changed since we saw it last. Small ledges became big ones and obstacles appeared where it used to be just a bumpy trail. We were expecting the only interesting thing to be at the end when we viewed the crash site but we were wrong. This trail was a lot of fun.
We did Park Creek first and then headed up to the crash site. We did a little bit of the Dead-End Hill just to get to the big view but we didn't go any farther up the hill. It was nice to get out of the trees for a bit so we hung out and enjoyed the scenery for a little while before turning around and heading back down.
This trail was a bit busy and we would see other vehicles and ATVs along the way. The weather was perfect, though, and no one minded waiting.
There is a new obstacle with a difficult route down the right side and a very difficult route along the left side. We all went along the right side on the way up.
At the ledge we were surprised to find it much more challenging than before. Everyone had a good time testing their vehicles there.
When we got to the crash site hiking trail we parked out of the way as well as we could. A truck was there at the back of the parking area and we found the owners on their way back from the hike. They said they weren't in a hurry so we went do to the hike.
With all of the snow we had everything was so green. It was hard not to fall on the way down to the engine and when we got down there we found a field full of flowers. What a nice surprise! We stayed down there for a bit to enjoy the scenery.
The hike back up was strenuous and slippery. But we all made it back to the parking area. The truck got around us and we followed not long after. We would end up behind them on the way down but it was interesting to watch how different things were in the obstacles with such big trucks.
We had a good time on the way down. Gary tried a different line through the fun obstacle and he was successful. No one had any issues.
When we got back to the trailhead we worked our way to Bunce School Road. We finished that by heading out to the school itself. It was the perfect day.
