drive to penny and bend, old rd along railway towns from 1900's
« on: September 07, 2018, 05:34:11 AM »
going to go for a drive past willow river to check out the towns of penny and bend along the railway from the 1900's been reading some books on the old trappers and settlers out that way when the railway was coming in, tones of old biuldings still up, looks super cool, there are some fsr lookouts out that way, I know one is closed to vehicals but not much info on the second one, thinking last weekend in sept if anyone wants to come along.

rd to penny is a old fsr, don't think its to bad, people still live in penny, but it is apparently not maintained anymore. I was wanting to try to get to the next town and last on this side of the rail trestle at the end of the rd called bend, no one lives there apparently anymore and it says no rd acess but the map book shows a trail. The jeeple went to penny last year erik and you know they don't scratch there precious jeeps
