5-Mile Pass Trip Report, Nov 7-8

What a fantastic weekend to get out! The weather forecast throughout the week was up and down, but it turned out great in the end. For a weekend in November, we couldn't have asked for any better. This was a relatively short trip heading out Saturday morning and returning Sunday evening, but we still managed to have a great time. Uncle Dan brought his mountain bike and rode a few trails, one of which is a race course loop for mountain bikes. The boys and I went on a couple of great trail rides as well. Most of the trails are a mix of rocks, dry silt and some hardpack. There are many trails in the Five Mile Pass Recreation Area with spurs that lead in every direction so picking one trail and sticking to it can be difficult, but it's hard to get lost and easy to find some great stuff to ride. We found a couple of really great trails for the skill level we needed and there are also many more difficult climbing trails. The boys also loved riding near camp and even got into riding some pretty impressive wheelies! I did some riding near camp as well, made a stupid mistake and got thrown off the bike..still feeling that one! We also had fun with RC trucks, paper rockets, and a potato cannon. The nights were cold, so the furnace was nice and the days warmed up to near 60. Here are a few pictures from the trip!

  1. Dude, I was there watching them jump! The trails were awesome, you're right, you can't get lost out there even though there are so many trails. It's probably because it's suck an open area. I am glad I went to camp with you guys, it was fun!
