 some fun down hill sections, although once you get to the top and start descending, there is more ups then its up. it kinda seems like you do the up trail. and then turn around and go up and up and all of a sudden your at the bottom

 Upper Prospector is shown backwards on this route. It should go clockwise looking up hill

 Lots of up. Not much down. At least that’s what it feels like.
