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

One 30 yard section of deep side hill snow that is pesky and 3-4 mini sections that are easy to walk over.

Only a single last patch of snow after the last switchback. Easily passable. Almost G2G

Several snow banks above the last top switchback. All will be gone or mostly melted in 4 or 5 days. One huge snowbank won't be gone for 7 to 10...

 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.
