Lots of thick, loose decomposed granite on this section. Climbing is difficult. Plan on plenty of hike-a-bike!!

Hiking this trail today. Absolutely beautiful trail for a hike. Term condition is excellent. Looks like primary use by horses.

 Good stuff, but a very serious HAB, lots of good stuff getting to it, but not worth hiking to loop back to 7 Springs /Sears Kaye

 Can't imagine riding it northbound. Rode south from bronco to ranger station. Tons of hike a bike because of steepness and soupy softness of the trail. Remote and pretty, but a lousy trail that isn't worth the trip
