So I took my girlfriend out riding yesterday with the goal to make it from table mesa road through tip top and up to Horse theif lake. The trail branches out past tip top as there are multiple ways up there. Passing windy saddle tank(google maps) we took the road to the west up the mountain. Had we taken the trail northeast down the canyon I feel we may have made it. As we got closer to the top I could see the fire tower and other areas that assured me we were within 2 miles as the crow flies. The problem came that any trails between here and there were to rutted or over grown. I didnt want to risk anything since we were solo. Sooo, has anyone been able to make that particular trip? I know there are multiple trails to choose from so id be interested to see what worked for you.
Anywho, here are some pics.
This cabin was about as far as we made it
Surprised this glass was still holding up.
Only a few flowers on this trip
and just to see how the pano comes out
