We've been mighty lumberjacking some more clearing out trails. At least we found that someone has cleared a little more behind us! Last weekend was fun.
Some of y'all have been riding here with Kenny back when I was working every other weekend.

We are going to leave off trying to clear some of the snakier trails until the weather is cold again. Some we'll work on that are more out in the open.

Thank you, Bamagirl. It is an rugged area, but easy on the eyes.

PostSubject: Frank's Flume   Fri Sep 18, 2015 6:25 am



We have been riding Skinner Mountain and trails over around Jamestown since 2011. FINALLY found Frank's Flume. Thought we never would and would not have except for meeting a man who knows a lot about the area. Ricky is a great guy. Weird finding this spot because in our minds we know pretty much all there was to know about the mountain. Finding this where we've driven past an entire arm of a cane and a whole nother feature and an important trail intersection a dozen times or more......
It is an other worldly feeling. Had an awesome day's ride with old friends who just moved to the area and made three new friends in one day! He also showed us another loop we had never quite connected. Found out Buck and Jody had already scooped us on one of them. :-)

That's pretty and cool. The diverse geo features of the plateau have always fascinated me and I love riding there. Never been to Skinner Mtn. but looks like I need to give it a visit.

We'll try to give a holler on here and for those we have phone numbers for.. we'll call ya before the next ride. Prolly gonna be not this weekend but next. I'm still trying to put together a trail guide. Some of the features I just can't remember well enough to write about it without re-riding the trails. Selective memory loss? :-) Maybe. Very Happy I agree with you. That's what fascinates me. It is absolutely wild! I felt like I was in the twilight zone finding that after many years of hunting. What threw me off was I had read a caption on a photo that said it was at the base of Skinner Mtn. It is NOT at the base of Skinner Mountain! Not at all.

I know what ya mean. We looked for 3 or 4 years in Pickett for one of the cave/overhangs that I had been to many years ago but couldn't find it. Shouldn't have been hard to find because a trail runs right across the top of it, right?.....wrong. Finally ran across it last year. There was thick vegetation on both sides of the trail and we had driven over top of it several times while searching.

I know exactly where you're talking about.  We missed it too!   Finally Shannon & Ronnie showed us how to get to it.   Anyway it is hard enough, but worth it when you do finally locate something.   The fellow we met who took us has never been to Xanadu Cave or falls in all his years of riding so there are some things we have found that he will want to see.  I am wanting a couple days of riding and a day of hiking.   Finally found out from an acquaintance how to reach the big falls on the East Fork River. Can't take the RZR there. You have to bushwhack to it from the road.   But now on that one thing we may do is ride up there in the RZR and pull off and lock it up and hike down.   It is one of those waterfalls that runs even when the river dries up!  East Fork Obey Falls

That waterfall is known as Beezelbub's Bathtub in the TCS. I had one of the wildest kayak rides ever from Hanging Limb TN to the Wilder Bridge about 20 years ago. One buddy nearly drowned in a strainer and another busted his boat up.

Kayakers always have a name for every feature on a river. Glad you survived it. Hoping to get there this coming weekend. Won't hold my breath,but will see what shakes out.
