This trail is an out and back on Ridge 0157. It is very technically difficult with very steep grades throughout the ride. The 18 miles and 3400 feet of climbing feel much harder than they should! 10% Hike-a-bike if your in strong shape but not willing wreck yourself very time grade hits 20%. The views are gorgeous as you reach 9500 feet. You can see into Heber on the one side and over to Catherine's pass at the final ridge. We stopped on this course before descending to Forest Lake!
