      Conditions are great, but there is a big swath of trail just past Sykes bridge and almost to the clearcut where there are lots of toadlets hopping...

       You will not find a better climbing trail than this. Many switchbacks but well designed to be well bermed and wide on the upper side. The trail has been well designed to either flatten or have a slight incline for riders to catch their breath. Finally, the entire trail has had lots of earth put down so the path is quite smooth, no mean feat in the scrub forest that the trail winds through.
