Upper trailhead is a bit tricky to locate - look around the back of the fire lookout halfway up Angora Ridge Rd.

      Good shape and all clear. I rode/walked up. Wouldn't recommend uphill travel unless you're a climbing beast. Would be a fun descent!

      Lots of downed trees forcing some walking, through you'll probably be walking a lot anyways
