This is the 1800's way up towards Guardsman and Wasatch Crest Connector from Solitude. It's very steep and loose in parts, a more difficult climb up than the road, BUT there is 0 traffic. This road brings you up past a bunch of cabins and you'll see a lot of wildlife you miss from the pavement. It's a tough climb, since once you finish this you get to take on Wasatch Crest Connector (another tough climb), and THEN Puke Hill to finish it off.

       Great way to loop Crest-Mill D/Beartrap. I thought the climb was pleasant- it’s a mostly paved/gravel road to access houses, nothing too steep or unridable. Very quiet.

       The end of this is wrong on the map. If you stay on the true Old Stage (by going around a gate), you'll climb more through super pretty terrain and you'll end up just below Puke Hill on the dirt road.
