In about 10 miles (this will be at the very top of the Loup Loup pass) turn LEFT from #20 towards the Loup Loup Ski Bowl. Then turn RIGHT in about 1,000 feet to the North Summit Sno-Park (AKA: North Summit Horse Campground). Ride out at 10:00 a.m. for an approximately 2.5 hour ride. Hamburger lunch will be about 1:00 p.m. and Non-riders always welcome!! Bring your own chairs, drink, and a pot luck dish to share (hamburgers are provided by the chapter). We'll be exploring a bit and trying out some of the new trails near the campground. The time for lunch is flexible and we allow time for people to care for their horses after the ride. Please contact Jan or Bill with questions.

Drive is 1 hour 20 minutes each way. Bring lunch (and rain gear for the west side weather just in case). We'll ride out to the horse/boat camp and be gone all day.

(Tue) Oct 8  Cutthroat Lake/Pass Ride. Contact: (TBD). This trail is an easy ride with a gentle slope and nice surface. The lake is surrounded by rocky cliffs. The trail gradually climbs through a thin forest, past some huge lichen-covered granite boulders. A few small ups and downs and the lake (finally) comes into view, surrounded by rocky cliffs. UPDATE! The ride may continue past the lake to Cutthroat Pass; bring lunch. If you prefer to return to your rig after arriving at the lake (without going to the pass), be sure you have someone who will ride back with you. LOCATION: Drive west on Highway 20 from Winthrop, and just a few miles before you reach Washington Pass there is a side road on the right that is clearly marked “Cutthroat Lake Trailhead”. That road goes about a mile and ends in a small parking lot (with a pit toilet).

Turn towards the river on Dripping Springs Road and follow road to the left to Dept. of Wildlife parking area. Ride out at 10:00. Ride is very flat, and approximately 5 miles round trip.
