That first creek crossing is treacherous.

With the Boone Bridge bike lane opening, I'm going to have to come out and learn some of these routes. Might make for some nice long after-work rides in the summer. There isn't a lot of gravel near my house.

Since I hit CF from Hwy D, that crossing is actually the last one on my route. But I would def agree, it is usually treacherous. I've wiped out there a few times. But strangely, that one was bone dry on my ride - it was the next crossing up that was inundated. I think the flooding changed the creek a little. I hadn't been on CF since the flooding and the County has obviously worked on the road - new gravel, grading, etc. It's shocking how much road gravel is in the woods - as far as 50' off the road in some spots!

Eric - CF road is only 5 mi. long and not terribly hilly but so cool in how isolated it is. No cell service even. It is easily accessed from Defiance back roads/hwy F. You can also access it from hwy D but I refuse to ride on the hwy so use the right-of-way which is kind of odd but no property owners have said anything to me about it (yet). Slow but a great workout.

It's a really pretty road, too.
