Ah, Mushroom Head, a Fernie favourite - ride it in either direction for fun. Sit on Pete's bench just below the summit and take in the view. Hooks into Lactic at the top and Phat B / Red Sonja at one end and Dem Bones at the other. There is a surprisingly large jump at the Dem Bones end (totally avoidable) with a sign with an also surprisingly large "fungi erecti" on it.

A bit of mud and a bit of snow but nothing significant. One tree down on the Red Sonia end that a hand saw could take care of.
