~How to break in a new member of the SBBCHI~

“Is there an App for that?”

What  is the best way to break in a new member of the SBBCHI? Strap a pair of saw chaps on her and send her up one of the most technical trails on the mountain. Enter – Squaw Creek TR 131 and Shelley Duff – Squaw Butte’s newest member.

The original plan was to clear Poison Creek Trail on Saturday and loop down Squaw Creek or pick up Squaw Creek on Sunday. We rode Poison Creek last year and made it a short distance past the bridge before encountering a massive tangle of blow downs obliterating the trail. We didn’t have the saws or the girl-power to put a dent in that one. I say “girl-power” only because our small group consisted of a woman to man ratio of 2:1.

The Ranger District notified Rob that a trail crew had already cleared Poison Creek.  Change in plans. We would concentrate on Squaw Creek Trail Saturday and check out Poison Creek on Sunday.
