The first 5.5 miles of this trail are outside the Wilderness Boundary, so you're free to ride them! Be sure to stop at the edge of the wilderness though.

This trail features some gnarly rocks, especially in the upper half. If you push through though, you'll be rewarded with some excellent views and a fun decent. The adjacent jeep road is probably easier to climb on a technical level, but it isn't graded nearly as well as the trail.

Buchanan Pass has several sections of very slick ice flows. Difficult to even stand up. Use caution.
