 Great route! Started on the north side and left at the south side. Went up to Alice's overlook before descending to u-line.

 Ack, I hated this route! Not saying you won't love it but for me it was a lot of gratuitous climbing on boring trails to finally get to the goods at the very end. I had hoped for more fun on the way. Oh well, now I know.

      I wish I saw that report from 3 days ago. It didn’t even look like a trail so being new to the mountain, we missed it and went down 2020 (unintended). So much mud. Just pushed bike up.
