I've heard it's harder than Hollister. (Hollister will likely be NorCals Feb destination)

The one trip I had planned to cow mountain was canceled due to rain. The park closes during inclement weather to prevent damage and also because I think it gets slippery and dangerous.

I've also heard the trails are extremely brushy. I'm willing to check it out though.

I didn't hear about Paul. Was this on the way home?

Johnny almost ran into me yesterday. Nothig like hitting a huge drift that brings you almost to a complete stop and looking into the rearview to see another H1 sliding towards you. :o

I've never been on the trail but Eric Hemminger and some other NorCal Hummer Group members did a run there last year. Eric lives in Santa Rosa. I bet he's a good one to ask since it's his back yard.

Pipe up there big fella...

The NCHG trip scheduled there last year was the one I was refering to that was canceled. Not sure if it was ever rescheduled. Eric may have been there another time though.

Cow Mountain is OK. There are alot of brushy trails. Cool little rock garden for playing. I have never explored to much. Would be fun to scout. Lets Go!!
