       Rode this section west to east today. The trail is very advanced with some sections that are completely unridable for all but the extremely fit and expert riders. There is a way to bypass this section by riding on the road.

       Do NOT Ride this section west to east. Even as an advanced rider the hiking sections were longer than the bike sections. It’s unfortunate because with a about 30 well placed flat rocks this trail would be rideable most of the way summit road marker 4.5 to Holbert.
