Popular loop from Station Flats parking lot to access Snakes and Ladders. Bobcat is a very reasonable climb but watch for people descending.

Snakes & Ladders

December 16- Upper 3/4 of Snakes is summer dry. Approaching the bottom- a few short icy bits. Removed 3 small blowdowns. One 20 cm tree still blocks the trail, at about 2/3 thirds of the way down. Rode back up Snakes, so did not check out the Ladders climb to Ridgeback.
Ranger Summit

December 16- A guess would be about 70/30 dry dirt / icy, with a bit of hardpacked snow remaining. Great for all tire widths. Studs advisable, despite the exposed rocks.
