After leaving Chaing Mai in the morning on XR250 from Tom and Joes hire shop we rode through Samong to Wat Chan stopping for gas Huaimana. The gravel road is well kept and graded to Wat Chan. We again stopped for gas it took aprox 4 hrs stopping for photos and drinks. At Wot Chan turn left and then travel 1km before taking road to the right. Travel a further 9km on well graded gravel road and take the right fork again at a Huai tong. from here you cannot get lost and it is a further 71km of serious offroad trail suitable for offroad bikes and tyres.

We traveled the road at the start of October 2010 and the road was all heavy packed clay with little aggregate cover, At the time there was no standing water but the clay was still moist from the wet season and offered good traction, I did note that the clay was very glazed in the wheel tracks and if it had of rained it would have been like riding on ice. We didnt find anywhere for fuel or food and drink on the way but we didnt really go out of way to look in the small villages.

We mucked around took photos, had drinks and stopped to help a local clear the track of trees he had just cut down. and it took about 3 hrs from Wat Cahn to MHS
