       A newly built masterpiece. Amazing climb trail. The gradient is super nice and almost feels like riding a flat trail but yet it still takes you to the top!

       Amazing climb. Switchbacks are very well thought out. One of the best climbs I’ve done.

       Amazing clim trail, very well thought out!

      Side note, you can't use this trail in the route planner as it doesn't connect to the bottom of Broadway. Broadway being dowhill only, the ride planner will not link the FSR to the climb trail through the bottom of Broadway. Hope that make sense.

      Cheers!
