Nice old asphalt road with some trickier eroded bits but nothing particularly steep, loose, or difficult.

      Some snow. Erosion was no big deal, casual uphill.

      There has been extreme erosion on this abandoned road. Glad to cross it off my TrailForks list of rides but not enjoyable to go on again.
