I made a couple of video's during my trip to BBRSP.  They are both about an hour long.
Basicly I slapped the gopro to the front of my FJ cruiser and filmed the trails we went on.
The reason I did it this was is to A) relive the trail when I get nostalgic and B) provide other 4 wheelers an idea of what the trail can be like if they want to take the trail.
The first is Paseo al Solitario going from the south end heading north.  I LOVED this trail !  It's a bit tricky in places but for the most part isn't difficult.  The views are incredible in places.
I was leading on this trail and took a left into a washed out creek bed when I should have turned right and found the trail about 20 yards away.  I turned on the camera about 1/4 of the way into the trail after turning around in the creek bed.
The second is Javelin Trail between Javelin Pens and the Oso Loop.  This is a pretty easy trail overall. A few steep hills is the worse I remember of it.  Great countryside and views from this trail also.

Hope y'all enjoy them.

Wow, the Paseo al Solitario is not for the faint of heart.  The sections at 8:00 and 37:00 had me puckering.  Looks like fun!

Not to bad. Looks like fun. Nothing better than some pinstripes.

Yes, the area at the 37 minute mark was for me the most stressful. In the end it turned out to be easy once I got a better perspective on the line to take from my buddy that guided me through.

There was a ton of pinstripes on that trail.  And yes, it was lots of fun.  :)
