Goldstream River – Ground hog Basin

Date of Ride Report: August 28, 2016

Ride Report Details: Having ridden the French Creek area earlier this season we wanted to try the Goldstream (Groundhog Basin)ride. The old mini-slide has been removed allowing easier to all especially the side by sides and the trail is in surprisingly good shape but as with a lot of our trails is growing in. An overcast day with the threat of rain but just a drizzle at one point. The road down to the old bulldozer and sluice box is pretty good, a little washed out in spots but passable and one detour around a large tree that someone will eventually cut away. This is still an intermediate to expert trail in my opinion, it is steep and very rocky. The scenery even on this overcast day is as usual, worth the drive.
