A consistent climb to an exposed ridgetop. Trail follows and crosses a creek a number of times. Upper section of the climb involves a handful of hike-a-bike sections, including the final push to the ridgetop (which may be under snow until early July). Most commonly ridden as part of the Pole Canyon to Mikesell loop. Carry bear spray.

      Good shape, some dry loose gravel sections. The Wild Flowers up top are in good shape. Grass is a little tall, watch for others on the way down!
