reporter Upper Hitman is free of snow after about the top 500m. There are about a hundred trees down and will need some chainsaw love.

 I rode this trail last year (2011) in July, there was still snow at the top so it was very hard to find the trail. In my opinion its not worth the effort it takes getting to it. The trails is obviously not ridden much, there were many trees down across the trail and almost all the wood features were broken.

 Just rode this trail on September 25th 2014. The "ATV' track to the top is driveable. We shuttled in a larger F250 quad cab long box truck which was tight going but anything 4x4 that is smaller should be ok. The trail is clear top to bottom and well worth the effort to get there!
