      Snow on the road to the entrance, with some muddy sections. Should be good after a few more warm days.

       Link in to Baconator. Fun fast course with some pretty decent steeps. Wood features and steeps where probably created by a genuis. well worth the ride.

       That's funny, there is no huge gap between sos/bacon... Not mapped properly. Baconator should be longer in length including everything. If you ride up don't ride the power lines: its terrible,, just take the road the whole way up. Pedal is the new shuttle.

       Map has been corrected. Old entrance/beginning of Baconator is not exactly as mapped but will give you the right idea for early season access.
