I guess that is true, TCD. I'm not sure it's been advertised anywhere that 5 Ponds is all that easy to negotiate, but perhaps someone not in the know would just look at a Nat Geo map and decide to...

I understand what you are saying, but I don't agree. There simply is no way for lesser used trails with lots of beaver activity to be maintained that well. If these trails were as well traveled as...

There are people who live in the area and update the trail conditions on facebook if you know where to look. It's not hard to find or figure out.

The problem is the expectation of always meeting one's goals. Does one always summit Everest if one tries? In this day and age of instant gratification, we expect everything to be easy and...

As you know, I do enjoy a nice, relaxing smoke of crack.

But alas, I haven't been to CRF in ages.

As long as you didn't have any marijuana or meth, you'd probably get a warning. I was actually serious about that in my other post (they'd probably ticket you for crack/cocaine as well, but...

It's not much of a trip, more a short day paddle.

You can't really start at Big Moose Lake because you pass through some private waters. I don't believe you can actually navigate the river...

Rode? :cool:

I wouldn't say education does NOTHING. Without it, it would probably be significantly worse as it does work on some. Then there are those who don't notice it and break the rules out...

I spoke to a ranger a few weeks ago with some questions, and I won't say who he was, but I mentioned something about not wanting to get a ticket for illegal camping and he said,

"Well, we don't...

I don't know the answer to your question, but perhaps it has something to do with the NPT which runs along the east side of Long Lake. That section would receive a fair bit of use due to that, but I...

This is always my tell-tale sign if I'm going to the right spot. If I don't feel spider webs someone beat me there and I'd best change my plans.

I notice this wherever I go.

Regardless of that, even if you pass someone in a dashed passing zone and were to hit the car you are passing or the oncoming vehicle, it would be your fault. One must pass with caution and...

AHahahaha. Based on the forum rage here, I'd hate to see the road rage.

Don't let those bikes run you off the road! Flex your muscle because you have a 2 ton vehicle :clap:

But you feel compelled to break the law by passing unsafely when a bicycle is in the lane, or part of the lane?

Uh yeah, and I believe it because I don't trust drivers like YOU! But it's not the law. I don't choose to take the lane myself, but like I said, try your luck the next time you drive out of control...

That is my personal opinion. I don't take lanes while riding because I don't trust motorists.

Despite what the law is, that's just my opinion. I've also almost been hit being far, far on the...

I would come from the west. If reports say it's bad, it's probably bad.

I believe the road is called Mill Creek Rd beyond the parking area, and it is certainly driveable, and in quite good condition. As to the legality, I would certainly check with the Forest ranger for...
