      reporter I was going to report several trees down, but looks like someone already cleared in previous report. Snow starts around the Severed entrance.

      Any plans to do this trail rideable from Hyannis to forever after area? Would open a new world of possibilities! I’m in to help build something to make this climb good enough to not want to die

      Going up from the west side should be the new Impossible Climb Challenge for Pink Bike.
      Just try to clean it without puking, actually great Type 2 Fun, I highly recommend it

      These comments are no joke. Avoid climbing from Hyannis at all cost.

      Went down this hill and it was not a nice ride. Loose rock and not beautiful or peaceful. Wouldn’t take this path again!
