Rat Trap Pass

Who's done this ? Looking at a map I see lots of Dirt roads between Hwy 20 and Barlow Pass.

  '16 ZX-14R SE (Harambike), '08 ZX-10R (The Son of a Bitch), 03 R6 (...), and the HAWG TY.
Rat Trap is washed out near the summit. You cannot get through in a truck, but a well-ridden bike might make it over the small strip of road left.

I wouldn't try, though. The exposure is short but significant.

My wife and I made it through the washout approaching from the north, easy-peasy. From the south it would be more effort, still doable, just don't fall over crossing the big log at the end.

We hit it from the South today on an XR650R and a new Africa Twin CRF1000. The washout was not bad on my XR, but the AT weighs over 500lbs.! My buddy Doug is on the short side and asked if I wanted to try and ride the AT through it. I was amazed at how easy it was, it has a relatively low seat and good tires. It got high centered on the big tree, but we just pushed until the rear tire got tree and over it went. Wish I got a pic while it was stuck, but here are a couple.

Can somebody post a map showing where this is, my google skills are failing me today. Just did the mountain loop for the first time a couple weeks ago and this one sounds like a must do.

For me I'm not sure. I have a blueberry farm and get pretty busy this time of year. Might not get away for another 5-6 weeks.

Are these all marked with a sign ? Google Earth doesn't show them all marked.
