As far as climbing trails go, they don't get much better. Turns are easy enough to negotiate, with a few spots that flatten out to give your legs a rest. Even a tiny downhill in the middle with a couple small drops to keep it interesting.

      Not quite mud, but a little too much on the wet side. Needs a day or two more of clear weather to dry out

       A fun trail that almost makes you forget you're going uphill. Very flowy trail with little down hills sections and obstacles to play on while you climb.
