ONE OF THE MOST treacherous log roll overs on Galbraith Mt. is the next to the last one on Dan's Trail, sometimes called the Bad Boy. It takes some people by surprise because it comes after the dramatic catwalk and old growth log crossing on Dan's, and they think the worst is over. Guess again.
Made of slimy, barkless cedar logs, the Bad Boy is high and steep, so steep in fact that you can't see the back side until you get to the top. This is worrisome since there is almost always a hole somewhere on the backside. The trouble is, you don't know exactly where because it moves around as wear alters the trail. Here, as you see, the hole turned out to be just right of the center.
The other trouble is that you can't hesitate on the Bad Boy; you've got to commit and plan to be quick coming down the far side. If you stall, you're going to endo for sure and you may even get bonus points for hitting the next log roll over about a dozen feet ahead.
