High alpine ride that ascends to the continental divide before riding along the ridge-line around 13,000ft. Really rough high altitude climb with some of hike-a-bike included and a ripper descent back down to the Herman Gulch trailhead.

This is a popular trail on the weekends with hikers going to that first turn off for the lake so it is better to start early to stay out of their way.
