Awesome climb and ripping fast descent. The better of several ways to climb up to the Steel Hollow trailhead. You'll have a couple short, loose and rocky sections towards the bottom followed by clean dirt the rest of the way up.

      Trail is in great shape right now. If you are riding the loop to steel though, the road is real muddy with running streams. Not gud. Just ride Ricks.

      Great conditions with just a few puddles and muddy spots. Mostly ideal.

      Snow patches randomly. You can make it 3/4 of the way. A week to 10 days it will be perfect.

       I dont know about "awesome climb". Maybe if you're in shape and capable like Nino it's an awesome climb, or on an e-bike. I thought it was excessively difficult. The climb is significantly harder than providence canyon even though they're rated the same. I can clean the providence climb with moderate effort. This thing is just a monster. It's a sick out-and-back though. Just expect to hike it more than you think.

       First third has minimal shade, middle part is rocky, last third is extremely steep. You would have to be in pretty amazing shape to ride the whole way up. Rainy and tacky when we rode, but a fun adventure!
