 Parcours intermédiaire. Commencer par la montée prairie view, assez difficile par endroits, où vous croiserez de nombreux randonneurs. Essentiellement caillouteux.
Une fois arrivés au premier point de vue, l’accès au second se fera en poussant/portant par moments.
Au sommet, très belle vue. Descente Prairie View avec de nombreuses marches et racines, puis très beaux singles en passant par Jewell Pass. Compter 1h30 pour la boucle de 14km.

One tree down. Icy for the majority of the descent, rode slow without studs. Probably a lot of fun with studs.
