Still need to “ramp” one side...we were 2 2x6 short. I recommended using stone as the base layer or at least some pressure treated but was overruled with the proverbial “it will be fine!”

No trial run with the ATV but those cedar pines are beasts.

One pine looks 6 feet shorter than the other. Was there a 16 oz malt beverage in hand when “it’ll be fine@ was uttered!??

That reminds me of the ditch that runs near the back of our place.  It usually runs about 2 ft deep, during deer season, and about 8 ft wide.  I have a productive stand about 20 yards from it, and have killed severel deer (and one fall hen turkey) that were on the other side when shot.
All but one of the deer dropped dead across the water.  Getting them over to my side often involved at least one wet foot.  I dont want to build a bridge across it, because that invites tresspassers.  The year after my last soaker, on a freezing cold day in 2017, I propped up a 16" wide, 12' long, white oak plank against a tree near the stand. 
Now, I can just lay that plank across the dich, and walk high and dry over to the "kill", no matter how high the water is in the ditch.  I have not tried it yet on a deer however.   
I didn't need it on the turkey either.  She flew up into a tree on my side, after taking my load of #5's.  A couple pellets must have caught her lungs, because she soon splashed down near shore on my side where I finished her with a point-blank head shot.

I hit a dead end at that ditch that time i turkey hunted at your place lol, there was no getting across even remotely dry

There is quite a few big old dying ash trees leaning towards it in the woods that will make marginal bridges when they fall over the next few years.  The town does a good job of keeping that ditch clear though, so they will not last long.

I have crossed it on downed trees a few times over the years.  It is always little  tricky, balancing on the curved logs, especially when there is snow and ice on them.  The flat plank ought to work a lot better.

Entry to the woods across the creek

We also prepped a logging trail to the back of the property that allows us to avoid crossing any fields. Could be a game changer for morning hunts.

crappyice- does the creek flood at that location? If so, it might be good to cable it down

My buddy’s convinced “it will be fine!”
I am both dreading and prepare to reveal in the “told you so” moment.

Looks like an old snowmobile trial bridge.
I have a similar one on my lease.......we may bring her back to life this summer.
