    March 8th I am going to Windrock to ride Walden's Ridge. I have been to Windrock several times, but never done this trail. If you haven't heard of this either Google it. This trail looks pretty intense and is not for the faint of heart. I created an event for it on Facebook. Link below.

    Walden’s Ridge is my favorite trail at windrock. Only trail I’ve done there that we never ran into any other rigs the entire trail.

    I'm hoping to do it when we go in February. Seen videos and it looks like one of those terrible ideas you should do.

    Bucket list item. Seriously hoping me and Chris do it next month. Had no idea @obullfish done it! I’m shocked, and now excited that someone else in our group may be on board with me and @Chris_Keziah.

    Here I am coming down the big ledge unassisted with help from a good spotter. 9FAC1259-DA75-455C-A7BB-5371D02A637A.jpeg 54F20BA4-9E90-461E-8F2A-FCA47822EAC4.jpeg BD94884B-1707-4EEC-AACA-65F391A9F065.jpeg

    I was told if you stay at Half Moon camp ground there is a back way in that will have you there in 7 minutes.

    I'd like to but don't know if I have the right rig. I'd be up for walking and watching for a first-time though.

    I have been told it can be done with 35's and lockers. You are welcome to walk it and watch. Should I count you in?

    33's and open rear at the moment so I wouldn't think of trying it but once I'm locked and finish the sliders I want to check it out.

    Can be done with 35’s and lockers for sure. The worst part of the trail for 35’s and under is the first couple hundred feet. Right at the start of the trail there are a bunch of fin rocks sticking up that are rutted out so you need to keep smaller tires up on the rocks. The way the rocks are spaced makes staying on top of the rocks is very hard. Keep in mind there are very steep drop offs on either side of this trail and it literally is on top of the ridge. Very few places to get around another rig on the trails and someone with you needs to have a chainsaw due to possibly trees down on the trail that doesn’t get much traffic. Anyone taking their rig needs to be confident in their abilities and have a dependable capable rig due to what it would take to get a broken rig out of there.

    We’re going to be there that weekend. You guys know that SRRS #1 is there 3/8-3/9 right? Plan on the area being packed.
