       One of my favorites as a mid level rider. Complete variety of terrain and doable with a few challenges along the way. Great uphill and downhill work. Some cool cliff scenery at the top.

       So this trail is quite the climb going. Reserve your energy for on the way down. It was an OK trail. I did not get to go down it. Because I went down the Alaska trail

       This trail is a hoot to descend! Some very fast flowy sections, small airs. A couple short uphill grunts too. But do it east to west.

       19 Nov 18. Just crushed it (not really). The uphill was a lot of challenge for me (intermediate?) and particularly for my wife (true beginner)

      But gorgeous and the downhill will rock.

      Came up to backtrack to the “Stomping Grounds” dino tracks off Alaska.
