Mostly doubletrack with a short section of singletrack in the middle. Good for winter and spring riding due to arid conditions. Part of a historic gold mining area that still contains many claims.

I love this climb. Clear and dry for nearly all of it. Snow covered at the very top, which was a welcome walk/rest.
