If you are going to be there on the 5th then it will be easier to be shown the proper alternatives by the lease members. Members have access to a trail on the other side of the bridge. Non-members, legally, should only use the two steep paths straight to the creek at the end of the parking lot. Tough-going whatever way you use. :(

Before I was a lease member the first season I had to haul my dredge down and back up that goat path many times. Piece by piece. It would work ya good. By the end of the season I was doing it like it was nothing.

Made me appreciate the lease very much. Opened up a lot more ground too.

First season as a lease member I hauled my dredge with a baja minibike and trailer. Last season I upgraded to a bigger dredge and a Chinese ATV.

Some of my friends/fellow lease members are using bigfoot style wagons pulled by hand to haul there dredges.
Where there is a will there is a way.
