First 1/2 of trail is ice/snow covered. Barely rideable on skinny bike. Last 1/2 is dry/tacky. Totally rideable on skinny bike all the way back to parking lot.

Lots and lots of snow. Not rideable on skinny bike. Hiked 4.5km with bikes on our backs. Fat bike definitely better choice. Don’t let the first 100-150m of dry trail fool you!
