Head off from the Red Gate or Jade and Juniper Parking Lots and make your way down the Switchbacks and over to kiosk. Once there you need to find 3 rings and head up the classic stone Free. Take a left along the HRT and get in an easy gear to climb Rotten Cabin. From their you can take Fraidy Cat, 36DD, the pond and No Boats back to the kiosk. You then have to either climb up the Swtichbacks and along Wild Earp back to the Red Gate or take Gingerly and Comin' Round the Mountain. Fraidy Cat and 36DD are definitely double black trails, please ride within your limits.

      Mix of dirt, snow and icy bits. Studded tires highly recommended. Rode it yesterday and walked it today to clear some blowdown with the chainsaw.
