You really only ride this trail for one reason: to see how fat and slow you became during the winter, or maybe to grab the KOM/QOM.

One of the first trails to dry out, this is where you come to test your pain threshold and get the legs back in climbing shape. This climb is at the upper limits of what most people would consider climbable, so toss in a few loose rocks and gravel and be happy you made it dab free.

The road continues past where this trail ends. Feel free to keep riding higher.

Access Info

Drive up Sleeping Child Rd to the first obvious pull out once you pass the National Forest boundary
