Enter at the end of Mueller’s close to the South Gate at the Highway. Borders the Highway over around and through a few fun switchbacks, down into a Kettle and out a steep climb with a challenging uphill switchback to the Middle Gate Highway entrance and then up an even steeper oxygen and leg burning climb to an intersection with Baker View. The good part is you have a nice level, soft sand surface at the top of Baker View where you can drop off of your bike and simply throw up. Assuming you live… of course. You can also choose to turn left instead of right at a Y intersection in the middle area of Gretchen’s trail and avoid all the lung searing unpleasantness by dropping into the Wendy’s Revenge intersection.
