    March 26-29, 5 of us headed up to Gilbert, WV for a weekend of great riding on the Rockhouse Trail. That Gyrene, Myself, Gator, Frank D, and Hap G stayed in the Twin Hollow Campground and Cabins. It was absolutely a fun ride with all that went and can't wait until the next one. The weather turned out colder as we go closer to the weekend. The Thursday and Friday was the best, but several of them headed over to Bearwallow Trail early Saturday morning in the 16 degree cold and had a blast on that trail. I elected to stay back and ride into Gilbert and do some hob-knobing with folks at past Lodging and got some numbers for some future lodging. That Gyrene was a great "Gil Favor" leading us around all the blue and green trails on the Rockhouse, which is quite a large trail if you have ever ridden it before. Thanks to Gyrene for his leadership skills. It wasn't a technical ride, like a lot like to see, but it sure was a great ride enjoying the scenery as we could see inbetween the trees at the real high altitude trails with the breath-taking views down the mountain sides...MD

    Looks like it doubled up on the photos. I'm not sure why, but maybe an Admin can remove the doubled ones. Thx...MD

    Thanks for removing the extra photos...MD

    It's been several years since I rode Rockhouse, might be fun to get back there at some point when funds allow. Thanks for sharing MD, can't think of a better group of guys that the ones you had on that trip!

    Any ride is a good ride, Mike! It doesn't have to be technical, scenic rides are just as much fun

    Thanks for posting up those great pics, My 660. I always like seeing the beautiful countryside you'll ride back east. Were those ole hard rock mine pits? Enjoyed and looked like it would have been a blast and a little chilly, lol.......

    Bluesman, as you know, the Rockhouse offers a lot for the one trail system. I actually hate they did away with Trail 93, for it was the one trail where the group could always split for a brief time and meet back up at the 5 points for those that enjoyed the more challenging ride. BUT, the Ranger told me they had one to many medical fly-outs from the inexperienced riders trying to ride it.

    The Rockhouse and Bearwallow night be a good area for a RR group ride for those close enough to get there. Lots of lodging, food, and other needs available. Always thinking...MD

    BTW, I will try to get Hap G to join RR and post some of the Drone Videos he makes on the rides. He has that drone flying down pat. He uses the VIMEO program, will they post here on RR OK...MD

    Mike I just saw this?
    IDK... what I was doing or where?
    Great pics. I had a great time riding on some new trails, chewing the fat with old & new friends and seeing some new sights along the way.
