Moose River Ramble

Andrew and I started a fat bike ride in McKeever. We went East to the trail down to Remsen Falls. We used a hidden canoe and paddle to ferry our boats over to the lean to. After replacing the canoe we waded across. The trail West down the South Branch was not rideable. We pushed over and under trees, turned North at the confluence, and pushed over and under more trees. Then a stick forced my derailleur into my spokes. 10 mins, and I had a working single speed. Around Nelson Lake, and over the RR Bridge. When we hit rt 28, Andrew went for the truck, my one gear was slow. Salsa bikes suck to get parts for, new bike in future.

Your Wild Remsen Falls to Nelson Lake Bike Ride

You might want to repeat your 2006 ride. The (west from Remsen Falls) Scenic Trail was cleared in 2015.

Nice! I am glad I skipped going west from the lean to to Nelson Lake on my trip late last fall. I was worried about downed trees and rough trail.

That trip blog inspired me to buy my fat bike, and now an ECR with gen hub. The mechanic at Mountain Man had recently done the trail between Nick's Lake and Remsen Falls. He said it was all blow down, not much ridable. Keep making little circles

A number of years ago I lost a tire pump on that trail from carrying over all that blow down.
When we got to the L2 a camper warned of the nasty conditions if we continued the loop to Nelson lake. We opted to carry our bikes over head and cross the river which made for a long ride back to OF. Sounds like conditions haven't improved much in 10yrs.
