Shoe creek when its warm.

Want to get a big ride together when it's a little warmer and sunny. Around end of April or early may that way everybody has time to plan it. Would like to have a good size group and people that have been there to lead because last time nobody ha been there and we had no clue where to go. As it get closer we can set the date and time and where to meet

Camping is great and I may have my ride trail ready by then,(mainly waiting for new tires) If so I can go and will help navigate as I've been several times.

Me and some friends are talking about heading that way around the end of April anyway, it would be sweet if it was the same time cause there is 6 of us to add to the group gathered here.

Here's a great map. Shoe Creek and Big Levels can be done in the same day. They are close together.

from what we went on, with no experience from a guide I guess you could say, it was pretty sweet. In stock on 31s and didn't really have any trouble. Just avoided it mainly. You'd be plenty fine. It's more stocker friendly from what everyone says.
