Bikepacking with BOB Trailers

It’s called BOB’in For Weenies because this is a fairly tame route, perfect for first time backcountry off-road bicyclists. You don't even need a BOB trailer to do this ride. You can use racks and bags or even carry a backpack if you want — it's all good. It’s only one night out, distance is relatively short (day 1 = 11 miles; day 2 = 10 miles) and grades are generally mellow.

Mountain bike touring is the most fun I’ve personally ever had on a bicycle, and this place is my favorite

 

Weekend Schedule

Saturday: 9/9/17

Meet in the parking lot of Manley's Tavern in Crescent Lake Junction at 10:30 am.

Drive to the west end of Crescent Lake to park and load up the trailers. 

Ride up dirt road NF-6010 six miles to Summit Lake (elev. 5560’).

Get on singletrack @ Summit Lake, ride five miles to East Windy Lake (elev. 6230’).

Camp on a point at East Windy Lake ... a serene, picturesque place near the foot of Cowhorn Mtn.

It’s beautiful here. This is a fun area to explore or just hang out and relax.

Build a fire, (if conditions permit) make dinner, enjoy the ambiance of this near-wilderness setting. Embrace feeling truly alive.

 

Sunday: 9/10/17

Sleep in, hike to one of the other two Windy Lakes (close by) or just do whatever you feel like.

Pack the bikes up and ride more singletrack—Sunday’s ride will be 90% singletrack and mostly downhill.

Ride southeast past Suzanne Lake (go for a refreshing swim here!), five miles to Oldenberg Lake (elev. 5550).

Turn north at Oldenberg Lake and continue 4.7 miles to the vehicle you left at Crescent Lake (still @ elev. 4920’).

Consume post-event beer & chips, talk about how awesome the adventure was, then drive home.
