I have stopped here several times over the yesrs. It’s always cool to stop and see the old headstones.

The challenge sites around Silver City were not too bad. Make sure you take the second road to get to the top of War Eagle, the first one is a really rough shortcut. Time Ahrens and I thought we could come back on Reynolds Creek road, not knowing that the upper portion is closed because it passes through private land. We wound up making our way down a really rough rutted and rocky road (5) but were fortunate to run into a skilled dirt biker in a RZR who helped us get through the last big hurdle.

The ride up to this point was pretty easy, but it is very pretty up there.

The ride up here is pretty much the same as Miners Cabin. The stretch from the main road going to Silver City up here is a fairly steep incline, but doable on a larger bike. You might not want to take a larger bike up to War Eagle, however.

The Cemetery Tour continues…
The road was in great shape after a night of rain.
So interesting these English folks were buried hear in the 1800’s in such difficult terrain. Tough folks back in those days searching for their dream.

Stop 8 on our overnighter out in the Owyhees. Road getting to cemetery was wet from prior night’s rain storm. Quite a few water bars, but easy riding. Lots of people from England seem to be buried in many of the cemeteries in Silver City

It just amazes me that people live here in the late 1800”s. These were some tough people. We are all softies compared to our ancestors that lived before us

On the way up to the cabin and War Eagle Peak, almost missed it. Had there not been hikers coming out of the cemetery we’d have driven right by. Lots of snow still melting so there are many muddy area on this road. Nothing too greasy just enough to make you pay attention.

The owners of Count’s Cabin (Site 22) said Fairview used to be a town of about 1,500 people during the mining boom. I didn’t see anything but the cemetery.
This was very easy to get to. I’d rate it about a 2.2 if I could, but I’m rating it a 3 because it isn’t a wide flat graded gravel road like the other level 2’s I’ve ridden.
