Hackett Canyon with my local club
« on: November 13, 2016, 08:28:04 PM »

I know this wasn't a NorCal run but I thought you might like to see this 10 minute video. If you're ever over here in Dayton you should run this technical trail. We all received some scrapes but had plenty of fun doing it.

That first part of the video kinda reminded me of Thompson Hill on the Dusy/Ershim trail. Semi-steep with lots and lots of loose medium/large size boulders mixed in with that darn soft Sierra dirt. Hard to get traction when the rocks keep sliding under the tires and going all over the place and going up hill all the while!!   :cheers2:

I've only come down Thompson Hill but could imagine how tough it is going up. Nothing looks steep in my videos. I definitely believe a little momentum goes a long way on the loose stuff, kind'a like snow driving.
