PERMANENT ROUTE CHANGE: SECTION 7
Due to recent mining activity in Section 7, a change was required bypassing Fuller Road just West of Tinnemaha Campground.
The revised track continues North on Tinemaha Road (past the campground) to a sharp left turn onto Birch Creek Road (graded dirt). Make sure you Ride Respectfully as there are several homes along this section for about ¼ mile.
The route continues North then West on Birch Creek road until the pitch steepens and turns to faint two track (and becomes Forest Service 33E302) with embedded large rocks, however traction is plentiful and the steepest sections are short.
The route crosses McMurry Meadows Road, a wide graded dirt road from the original CABDR-South GPS tracks. McMurry Meadows Road can be followed and ends at Glacier Lodge Road where a right turn takes you to Big Pine and Fuel.
For more fun, instead of turning right on McMurry meadows road, continue straight on Forest Service Road 33E306, and follow the GPS on two-track that climbs in elevation for some great views and ultimately a creek crossing (you are now on Forest road 10S102) before dropping down onto Glacier Lodge Road and Big Pine to your right.
This permanent change in reflected in the current GPX file, so make sure to download the file prior to your trip at https://ridebdr.com/gps-tracks/
