Are we talking about the same greenhorn here? Clean? how did you miss the 2 dozen burn't cars, piles of shell casings and beer cans?Is it an OHV area? Is there a club that takes care of it? It looked really clean, almost like it was maintained....I was very impressed.
To be perfectly honest greenhorn is turning into a shithole since it has grown in popularity over the last 10 years. It used to be just a few local boys with pickups... the problems were the same, burnt cars, shell casings and cans... just on a much smaller scale.
But I digress.... A couple things on greenhorn if anyone cares:
- If you take a left at the YouBet bridge, you are heading into the Hansons Brothers gravel pit. It is private property and you arent supposed to be there. Hansons owns the majority of the creek bed from Rollins lake to Red Dog road. It used to be no big deal until a small kid on a motorcycle turned a corner and got smoked by a gravel truck. Now they are pretty anal about people being down there.
- Most everything on the YouBet side of the creek is on private property. This includes the eliminator, the crevis (sluice), and the majority of the other cool stuff down there. It has never been a problem in the past wheelin this area, but as of two weeks ago, looks like that whole hillside is for sale. I smell some big changes coming...
- I THINK (couldnt find a BLM map) that much of the creekbed from RedDog to Buckeye is a mix between BLM and private the whole way... But unless your on a bike or a quad, its just not that much fun...
- There are lots of caves if you can find them... many of them go nowhere while others can be followed all the way through... They are very cool - dont wreck them and dont leave your shit (beer cans) in there.
Greenhorn is still cool... but it sure might not be around for much longer.
