Henry Coe State Park April 13, 2014

Another Spring 2014 Coe group ride…

We began by climbing the Jim Donnelly Trail. The formerly banked Canary Turn is now flat:



I think those guys building the Soquel Demo Flow Trail stole it for their project.



What It Was Like Out There™


At the top of Jim Donnelly Trail (& Steer Ridge Road).



15 minutes later and the sun was out. Dew on Fiddlenecks was the only remaining evidence of the overcast and mist:







Chris and Tom cresting the steep pitch on Steer Ridge Road   :



Paul & Chris had camped the night before and Chris couldn't sleep but she still managed to finish the ride!



At the top, we turned on to Serpentine Trail:

Wagon Road:





Our stop at Kelly Lake included filling in a little wash-out:





Kelly Cabin Canyon Trail was a lot of fun:





Map meeting at Cross Canyon Trail & Willow Ridge Road:



We decided on White Tank/Rose Dam » Pacheco Camp » Pacheco Falls.



Here's Tom finishing Rose Dam:



I was pretty happy with the results of Wednesday's brushing of the trail.
