A 30-mile backcounty ride, ridden as a counter-clockwise Lollipop Loop. Essentially one massive climb of both singletrack and fire road, followed an equally long, technical downhill.

Pack plenty of food, and water, clothing, and be sure to have everything you need in case of a mechanical. Route tops out at 8,000 feet with lots of north-facing exposure, so be ready for snow in the shoulder seasons.

      Most of trail on the upper road system was restored to a natural state and is now impassable on a bike. There is no longer a way to connect upper and lower portions now. This trail should be removed from the app.
