    Evans Notch / 113 Road Conditions

    Anyone been on 113 between the height of land and route 2? I know it is paved fairly recently downhill in the southerly direction, and from route 2 to Wild River Road. I am contemplating riding through there...

    Thanks,

    I've been up there a few times in the past few weeks and it is indeed mostly repaved and in excellent shape. You don't start getting to "old" pavement until well South and out of the Notch. You'll have no problems riding from Rte 2 to Wild River Rd.

    Wild River Road to the height of land is what concerns me most, or, more specifically, height of land to Wild River Road.

    I was there a few weeks ago. It had new pavement for most if not all of the stretch between the East Royce trail head parking and the Hating Campground. I will be back over there today between RT 2 and Hastings and can see if they paved closer to RT2

    I was just there last week and its all nice new fresh asphalt. Not sure they've painted the lines yet.
    Peakbagger, I would stay away from the Hating Campground. I hear those people are mean.

    I broke a wheel earlier this year. Luckily I kept it upright. 50 MPH downhills should be enjoyed on good pavement

    Fair enough, I make quiet now.
