BBB: Bobcat Brew Boundary

Ranger > Bobcat > R3 > S&L > Strange Brew > Boundary

To maximize the fun on Bobcat, get out early. R3 has new boardwalk and climbing options to make things a little easier on the up, and then the big finish on Brew and Boundary. Can't get much better!

If you do this loop the other way round, you'll still want to climb Ranger Summit and descend Strange Brew, as Brew is a fairly unpleasant climb unless you love humping up roots.

Rode this Feb 11. Surprisingly supportive ruts in the turns. Very fun. Studs weren't necessary but likely will be in coming days.

A light covering of snow over the typical hardpack snow base. Many sections of snow-over-dirt. Good traction for the majority of the climb with only a few sections being made easier with studs. Overall, great shape considering the recent freeze/thaw cycles.

Ice from bottom to top. A few sections were too slick and steep to maintain traction. Studded tires are strongly recommended.
Boundary Ridge

The chinook turned the snow into slush, glare ice and glazed hardpack. There were some ruts/puddles forming, which will be really interesting when it freezes up. Studded tires would be a really good idea.

Great Shape. A few wet spots. Logging road crossings are a mix of snow & mud. Watch for fallen trees!
