High Point

Drop a shuttle car at Mutual Dell parking lot, and drive up to Timpooneke parking lot. Most of the climb is on dirt road, as the single track is brutal steep. The DH is Advanced/Expert. Steep and loose with some ridiculously tight technical switchbacks here and there.

Needs to be groomed again, and packed down a bit. It's still too loose for steady uphill climbing on fat bikes. It's ok going downhill though (barely)

The first mile of the trail is extremely loose right now, I would guess hike a bike on the way up. Did not ride the rest

Excellent and tacky. Tiny spot of snow at the top near GWT, which is easily walked.
