Good singletrack through the sage. Steep where the trail drops to the bottom of the canyon. The trail then crosses the dry creek bed several times in the canyon before it opens up in the flats and joins BLM121. This trail also makes a fine climb, with just a couple of steep, but rideable grunts.

      reporter God kills a puppy every time you make a rut, please think of the puppies. Trails still very soft with mud and snow patches. Turn back before you...
