Trail Ride from Cleary May 26th

#1 Post by john » Fri May 04, 2007 7:07 pm

Anyone up for a ride down the Mail Trail ?

I was thinking about starting at Cleary Summit and heading down the Old Mail Trail towards Eagle Summit.

That sounds like fun, but that weekend is the big mudbog ride down in delta. Not sure if anyone knows about it or not. Scott down at Polaris Junction sorta is the ring leader for that.


04 Switchback 600
05 Trail RMK
03 ProX 600

90% of all Arctic Cats are still out on the mountains/trails today.

The other 10% actaully made it back home!

Interesting info on the Frontier Days in Delta, but it didn't say anything about Mud Bog races. Are the races a different event ?

I don't know. I couldn't find anything about mud bog races in it either. That is the link that came up when I searched for mud bog races in Delta.

As far as I know we'll be up for a ride out the Circle Trail on the 26th. Going to drive the Denali Highway this weekend.

Great, I'd like to meet at 9:30 and hit the trail by 10:00 AM.

Enjoy the drive, should be getting pretty nice about now.

Just got word from Maclaren. The Denali Highway is closed, washouts around mile 82. Guess we'll do something else this weekend, maybe Chena Hot Springs.

the event sponcered (sp) by Scott at Polaris Junction is a trail ride thru the back country.
30- 40 miles. the trail is a mix of gravel , mud bogs, climbing huge flat boulders, crossing streams
while it;s a lot a fun ,,,,,,the trail is not marked,, 2 years ago the ride started at 10am and people trickeled in
untill midnight and scott and helpers waited untill then to go look for people,,,
some were headed the wrong way along the Alaska hiway some ran outta gas ,
I was not impressed ......
but then I do this for a living and have greater expectations than most.

Yup, John M, Jim, Chuck, Don and I went. We rode to Sorrels Creek, about 50 miles RT a nice run with lots of dust. We tried to go past Sorrels Creek, farther up the valley but it started to rain and we ran into a couple creeks that were a bit tough to cross for a one day excursion so we headed back.

Photo's posted in the album.

Where were you :D
