          Good ride. I don't remember the elevation but my gut says 'too early'.

          Say hi to Ethyl for me.

                I heard there was a massive slide on the 3100 rd, I take you were able to get through - where about is the slide .

                any idea on the status of the Yanks Peak route, I'm hoping to go through later next week.

                      At the advice of locals I avoided the Yanks Peak route (still possible snow) and took the 3100 rd . I had some challange getting through the deactivation ditch at km 21 but made it. I hope to try Yanks Peak before the end of this season.

                        Got within about 8-10 km of the top this last week. Had to turn around as my riding parter hit his engine case pretty bad and it started to weep oil. This was at the 4700 ft elevation. Can you believe he made it that far....on a Vstrom 1000. I was on my klr 650 and scouted ahead and found the next big hill probably would have shut down the 1000 for sure so we headed back down. The deactivation ditch looks easily passible now on anything considered dual sport.

                          Went over the Yanks peak yesterday, there is one slide at about 7 km on the barkerville side it was a little challenging as it was still fairly muddy. Other than that it was a pretty easy ride.
                          If you were to come from the Likely side you will have to come up either the hampton trail or little snow shoe trail. The snowshoe is the tougher of the routes I would say, it has a water ditch running down the middle of the road for about 300 meters in one spot and its filled with fairly big rock to navigate while the hampton just has rock all the way up...but not that bad.
                          Very nice ride awesome views.
