hmm im a bit confused here 7-up is off of 103,,cbrown is off of branch 03.

there was some concern p patch was going to be logged but they didnt end up touching any of the trail. as far as i know there hasnt been any recent logging on that side of the hill that has affected trails…

Looking at this map:
http://www.sunshine-coast-trails.com/roberts-creek-east-map.html

we rode 102 -[HTML_REMOVED] 103 and down 7up ( lots of potential in there…) at Br03 we went right - down the road towards Roberts Creek FSR. If I recall correctly the south ( downslope) of Br03 has been logged. We looked for Charlie Brown which should have gone in before Br03 intersects with the RCFSR. We did recognize the exit of red baron with the huck onto the road.

We couldn't find it… Its been awhile. We wanted to ride something different then 103 which would have been wet.

Charlie Brown has been reworked this past fall.

What's the potential with 7up?

Why slag free swag?:rolleyes:

I'm planning on heading over Sunday but concerned there may be trail work going on prior to the race? Anyone know?

No official trail day planned. Trail fairies have been out this week, and will be out next week as well.

We'll have to get you out with the giggler guy when we have more time for drinking afterwards!

Found Charlie Brown, totally brain farted last time. Nice work on it! Red Baron is sure taking a beating, nice where it drains better though.

Trails sure were wet. Lots of people riding there this weekend.

The logging is getting out of control on the coast. We rode the marathon xc course over the weekend and, while some of the goods remain untouched, I am blown away by the amount of logging there has been since I last rode the Rat Race five years ago. I understand, gotta keep Relic [HTML_REMOVED] friends employed, but those are some of the nicest trails on the planet.

i totally agree. the sad thing is for the most part the logging isn't even being done by local companies..

Me and some friends are looking to explore the trails on the Sunshine Coat this coming weekend. Hoping to stuff a vehicle and maybe do odd man out shuttles. We ride Cypress a lot and are looking for a bit of variety. Not entirely interested in massive gaps and stuff but fast flowy with reasonable jumps or any kind of tech-gnar would be welcome. No qualms about buying a trail map but am hoping to follow a few locals if anyone is in the area.

Bringing the big bikes so not so interested in pedaling. Any recommendations as to where to start?

What is the newest map book available for the SSC?

I have a bunch of them but am not sure if I have the latest version.
