Impressive instrument for an impressive ride Jerry.

Having said that....

You have to make it all the way to Windy Ridge (before anyone else) for you to claim it as your mountain.

Well, it may not be Your Mountain.... Yet.

But at least 25 is your road. Hell, we'll even throw in that mile marker in the picture by your bike.

Hoping the mini heat-wave we have this weekend will open things up a little.

Quoth the Bucket: "Never More"... Hello Imgur

I've posted this info before on the old forum, and seeing as how the information is often requested, I thought I'd move it over here. My main reason for doing so is to address some of the most common concerns of street riders, and in particular, those with smaller fuel tanks. A few notes to help folks understand the info.


There is fuel available in Cougar(A), Carson(C), Trout Lake(F), Randle(E), and the Eagle Cliff Store(B). Fuel at Eagle cliff is typically upwards of $5.50 (Ethanol Free Premium only), so be advised that it can be quite a bit more expensive as compared to the perimeter fuel stations above.

The Roads:

The roads mapped are the most common routes that we take to many of the destinations in the Gifford-Pinchot area, or when traveling through it. I don't imply that these are the only roads out in this vicinity, but these are the predominately paved 2 lane roads in the area. Other paved roads eventually turn to single lanes with pull outs, or turn entirely to gravel. Some of the roads that are mapped (FS-90/23) do have gravel sections on them, but they are relatively short. Along with the gravel sections, some of the roads have seen better days. There have already been plenty of posts concerning the condition of the pavement on FS-25 and FS-99, but be advised that FS-90/23 has some real sketchy pavement in spots also. In particular is a series of deep hidden dips that have been known to take down bikes moving at speed. It is for these reasons that when traveling on FS-25 or FS-90/23 between Eagle Cliff and Trout Lake, a certain level of caution should be exercised until you are at the least familiar with the road and where the most dangerous road conditions are.

A - B = FS-90

B - E = FS-25

d - D = FS-99

B - F = FS-90/FS-23

B - C = FS-90/Curley Creek Rd./Wind River Rd
