Bill Moore Lake Caution

Between the Parking spot above Empire and the Mine, the road is 3/4 washed out. The bad area is fenced off. The road is passable if you stay to the uphill side.

Re: Bill Moore Lake Caution

Thanks for the heads-up!

Is it wide enough for a full size truck?

Re: Bill Moore Lake Caution

Not sure. I suspect it will be one of those comfort zone things.

We were scratching our head trying to figure out how it could be repaired as it's quite deep.

Just downloaded a bunch of stuff from the camera. Here's a pic of the area.

WOW!

Looks like it will not be passable soon: http://www.frontrange4x4.com/forums/...Lake-9-15-2013

That thread showed up the evening after I posted here.

Re: Bill Moore Lake Caution

Little dirty and I ran this trail all the way to the lake on 9/21. The pictures of the trail where the wash out is make it look real bad but it is completely passable.

The sketchy part is standing on the edge of the wash out looking into the abiss and wondering if the ground you are standing on is safe.

We did have the privilege of seeing a massive bull moose on the far side of the lake just hanging out.

Re: Bill Moore Lake Caution

that's what i was wondering too, Matt. i felt nervous about being on the other side of the trail, and being poured on, then having the trail washout even more. wonder if it's changed with the rain from last night?

i ended up running illinois gulch instead. was a good time.
