      Fun Run down the lower 6 miles of Bedford. Mobbed up some fire road and single track. It was super over grown and was hard to see where I was...

      Rocky descent with a fair number of fist sized round and square edged rocks in places. If accessing from Main Divide (top) the trail marker says Silverado, NOT Motorway.
