Sweet alternative to Hyperextension. After the climb up Hyper Ventilation, you get a bit of a break before climbing some more, about 1km. After that, it's all downhill fast. Watch out for ditches and water bars across the trail in the meadows.

Access Info

Just before the top of Hyper Ventilation, look for the Southern Comfort sign to the right. The trail merges into the top of South Castle, which will dump you out on Cokato Road.

A bit of snow at the top of the climb and some mud on the fast old road section of the descent but in great shape.
