Today: changed the gear box oil and cleaned/oiled air filter.

Yesterday: conquered trail 6-the first time I’ve ever ridden it. No crashes or drops. Made it up all the technical climbs and down the descents. Swam in the beautiful creek at the half way point. We even found someone’s CRF250 down there stashed by a tree. It beat me mentally and physically to point of exhaustion and spent a lot of time sitting on my ass trying to make it through. We also did trail 5 and 2 making for a 50 mile loop.

Love and enjoy the new to me YZ250. Kick ass bike.

You can take the trail at devils thumb down the trail of switchbacks (towards last chance) for some added fun, too (or is that the one you took to go swimming?)

I saw that trail and it looked like an interesting addition. How is it going down?

I swam at the bridge on the southern tip of trail 6. Next time I ride it, I'll leave earlier, bring more water, and have a picnic at the water hole.

Good times!

I love the trail (you can go up the opposite side of the ravine once you get to the bridge at the bottom, and it's much the same: steep with many many switchbacks).
Here's my vid going up to devils thumb from a couple years ago (just made it public though)

Sold the KTM... Met a guy in Monterey, loaded it in his truck, he went to Tahoe.

He emailed me that it started first kick. Life is good.

Thanks! That part of the trail is really a blast. It's a bit technical and real purdy. I believe i've also heard it called "31 flavors" (for the 31 switchbacks?)

I highly suggest foresthill, you should get yourself there.
I've only done the trails on the eastern side of the road (starting from china wall), and I think i've only ridden Fhill twice.

Here's another of my Fhill vid's: the first part of trail 6 the first time I rode it 2015 (this is CCW, which is the only way i've ridden it)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2no0SE9APGI

I need a trip back there soon. Anyone want to go? Let's go!

(I should probably explain that I don't usually ride as non-stop aggressively as I did in that last video I shared. That ride ended up starting about 2 hours later than what I was expecting, so by the time the ride finally started, I didn't want to slow down or stop for anything. I knew these guys wouldn't mind. )

You were hustling! So fast! Impressive! I do not have the endurance to hold that speed longer than 3-5 minutes.

Anyone taken the western states trail from trail 6 at devil's thumb as far as you can go? I believe the multi use portion goes out quite a ways. I've been out to last chance and further where you're on dirt roads, but we were held back by snow. I think it at some point it goes back to singletrack and gets pretty rocky with some nice views, from some pics I've seen anyway. Not sure if the signs clue you in when the multi use goes back to foot traffic only.
