Site 20 - Little Beaver Creek

After leaving Placerville, the plan was to take Grimes Pass Rd to Summit Pass and Black Warrior over to HWY-21. But, It’s still too early in the season and we were thwarted by a fast, cold, stream crossing. Even if we’d braved the crossing (which the Cuprum Hermit did on his mighty 990) we never would have gotten past the snow – measured in feet, on NF-351 between Black Warrior and the highway.

So we opted to take the dirt highway from Placerville to Idaho City and slab 20 miles north to Little Beaver Creek Road. Making the right, we rode down to the Forest Service’s rental cabin and got our photos. From there it was all dirt (sort of) to Site 03 - Banner Mine.

 Had to bust through a couple of drifts with the help of Kapt Slow but we sacrifice for the photo.

 Rode up to Beaver Creek Cabin w/ Cliff Sussey 6/17/2022. I was on my R1200GS. We took 21 all the way up to The 362 Turnoff. Pavement (although rough in spots) all the way, and just gravel for the last 1/2 mile. Easy peasey. I did leave my key on at this checkpoint while getting the picture and ran my battery down. Fortunately a gentleman was willing to help jump start me, so we were soon back it it.

 Little Beaver Creek Cabin.  Been past this place I don't know how many times and never knew it was there.  I guess that's the point of this Challenge.

Living up to its name the culvert at the cabin was jammed with willow limbs causing a pond and dam powered waterfall.
