Woodlot Take Two

Fall is upon us. The riding is cooler, and the trails are damper. So why not use people power to go up for a change!?

Terry came over about 10a and we loaded up and headed out to The Woodlot out in Maple Ridge.

This is the second time we've been out there now. The last time was two years ago. Terry, Pasko & I ventured out one evening. We had no real good idea where we were going, and it got dark on us. As such that Woodlot experience wasn't as fun as we'd hoped.

This time was better. We got there before noon, and had a clearer sense as to where we were headed.

Using the map we had from last time, and paying closer attention, we managed to find our way to the trail choosing wheel. Since we had no idea about any of the trails anyway, we used it. We were directed to ride "Cabin Trail" to "Snakes & Ladders".

We met a couple of other guys at the entrance to "Cabin Trail" and they suggested we hike half way back up to hit "Tsuga" before finishing off with "Snakes". We took their advice, and the hole experience was much better than last time!

Another nice view

We will visit The Woodlot again. Maybe even again this year!?

Terry is giving the thumbs up on riding here again
