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.
