Great up and down. Amazing views at top, great connection to the crest. Also provides cool transitions between aspens, alpine meadows and pine trees. The waterbars at the top give you a bunch of little jumps through some tight pine trees, making this top section one of my favorite descents. Very popular climbing trail to get to the Crest from PC, so watch for riders up.

If you like riding dirt sidewalks, this is one of the best anywhere. Pedaling up this can be dangerous, better and safer to take Powerline to Comstock to Crest Conn to Puke Hil

      All dry. Watch it on the downhill. In some corners it's loose, deep, moon dust.Overall it's in really good shape. And no one riding uphill today....

       Fantastic climb to Wasatch Crest. Rides beautifully in either direction. Mostly climbs in stands of aspen trees, then higher up, pines. Nicely shaded and protects from wind. Comes out right at the top of Puke Hill, which is the brief, painful sun exposed fireroad access traditionally used by Wasatch Crest shuttlers riding north from Guardsmans Pass. From town via Armstrongs/ Pinecone ridge is just over 2900ft climb. Felt like less.

       Awesome high elevation climb and descent. One of the best in Northern Utah.
