Ride up to Bell Camp was challenging but awesome. Huge mistaking going down to Reeher's Camp. Too steep, not enough energy. Great trail overall. 20.3mi — 4h 20m

As much as I wanted it to not be, to my disappointment Gales Creek trail still has yet a ton of fallen trees. Better option would be Browns Loop.
