Old logging road access turned into nice wide gravel trail. Some climbs are slightly rocky. Ski trail, no bikes Dec 1st to April 16th.

Disclaimer

Be mindful of others using the trail. Especially close to the trailhead where it is usually crowded. So slow down bro.

      More mud first mile, rest is clear

      Maybe 3-5 wet spots, but avoidable

      Looking pretty good. Minor mud spots you can easily avoid.

      reporter Open to bikes for the season. There's more snow than ice, and more ice than mud. It's good fatbiking conditions before it warms up.

       Strange that this report says it's 1100 ft of climb. I've ridden it a million times and it's more like 650 feet total
