John Muir Trail

Hooked up with a buddy i met on my last visit to Colorado down in the Kettle Moraine State Forest trail called John Muir. Named after the pioneer of a lot of public access trails in the state and also founder of the Sierra Club. These are full on mountain bike trails with several different difficulty and length options. There is also a connector trail to the Emma Carlin trails which are the next step up. Steep, and fun! They had some of the 10 mile loop closed due to a lot of rain in the area the last couple of days, so we did what we could twice, maybe about 14 or 15 miles. Halfway through our second loop, down came the rain. It was a fricken blast! Riding out the last few miles of the trail in downpoor that you could hardly see through, wish i had a camera on me, but oh well.
