High Point

A great "BCXC" type of ride. The climbing trail has plenty of descents,until you get to Tamarac. Then it's a harsh grunt up to a bit of a descent off the end of Tamarac, hooking into Upper Whiskey. Another harsh grunt up Whiskey on the Rocks to the top, and then it's all down to the Railgrade.

Snow at the beginning, but you can pedal the whole thing. There is a large tree down about 1/3 of the way down.

Some snow in the open areas, but 100% pedal-able. The snow was tacky... which is weird.

Not getting ridden much so actually pretty good shape. One tree down just waiting for the trail saw I did have with me today. It is about half a klick below Tamarack if climbing up from Patterson.
