Cleghorn Ridge (2N47)

November 18th 2018

Description

The plan is to do Cleghorn in the morning then 2N17X in the afternoon.

Any member or guest is welcome, you can bypass everything at Cleghorn and you can bypass 2N17X 

2N17X is more advanced, you can call it a day and go home from Cleghorn or follow me to 2N17X. There is a staging area at 2N17X where we could park and ride with others or you can bypass 2N17X on Pilot Rock Truck Trail and continue to wheel.  

Plenty of options for all skill levels

Cleghorn is an easy trail and a difficult trail that keeps crossing with pretty good views of what is ahead.  Most of the obstacles are steep climbs. There are usually bypasses for the rough stuff.   2N17X has some steep and rocky ascents and descents.  There is about 3.5 miles of pavement between the two trails.
 

We should be at the trail head by 0800.
