      reporter Some icy places. Studs are helpful. Fat tires are a bit of an advantage in open areas.

       We used this as an up track to Chainsaw (also a great climb) then did Buck 50 as a downhill. This looks good either direction but was a fantastic scenic leisurely climb. If you hate climbs this may change your mind. Fun little integrated rock rollers keep it interesting!
