      Studs help but, they aren’t a must. Snowpacked with just a few patches of ice. Very rideable.

      3 large trees down. First is right at the bottom. Second is about half way up the 2nd switchback. 3rd is about 1/2 way up the trail just after the gully where the old trail used to go straight up the hill.
