This is a currently approx mile long single track loop I've been working on since last fall not far from home (Invariant helped quite a bit on a couple burn ins) Unfortunately camera cut off last quarter mile.

I want to add another 2-3 miles so it will be the length of a proper harescramble. I have some stretches to connect to it that i've been bushwacking on foot. It's funny, you walk someting and think it will be easy to ride through and It's a whole other story. So many face slappers.

The rain keeps coming and making everything overgrown and slick so it's not that clean of a run and I hit a few logs and things I could normally see.

But in early fall it should be perfect.

That looks great Rob. Can't wait to try it. Maybe I'll bring my chainsaw and we'll speed some sections up ;)

Hey I can't deny it lacks flow, surgical chainsaw strikes though so as to keep it's nature hidden from the ATV crowd ;)

I'm all up for meetup close to home in the fall! and no need for a chainsaw Eric, you ride the dualsport equivalent of a D9 Caterpillar!

There are guys out here in Idaho that have racks built on the forks of there ktm 350s, with a chainsaw mounted on it. Maybe that's your answer Rob. :) :)

Yeah I've seen some of those on thumpertalk and they would be perfect, just got a 56v cordless chainsaw and it's crazy what it goes through (seems to do anything a 35cc saw would do and goes for a good couple hours)

Very heavy in a backpack though, so a front mount would be ideal.
