       I have just moved to town and have ridden Silver Buck counterclockwise twice. The second time was with a buddy coming through town who had just spent 8 days in Moab. His comment was - "why did I bother going to Moab?".

      A G-SPOT climb with this trail and 6 Stiches is a masterful all mountain loop.

      - The trail is marked very well
      - There are green to blue outs for the harder features (also on 6 stiches). You will not suddenly be in trouble. There will be warning.
      - This is a tech riders delight - sharp bedrock ups/downs that will test your climbing limits - if flow and soft pedaling ups are your thing - go elsewhere

      My comments are based on ridding this with a 140/135 travel 29er which seemed perfect on a chubby middle aged platform that regardless of what my wife says can still conjure that good old up power.

      Chapeau to the trail builder!!!
