Don't be fooled by Lion's being a double-track Jeep road- it has its share of tricky moments The climb up from the west-end of Mack Ridge is not technically challenging, but fairly steep. The downhill section back to the frontage section is quite fast, but the double-track leaves plenty of room to fly and seek out jumps or other challenges. The views from the top are also excellent!
