      reporter Early fatbike season! Leave the skinny tires at home - we've got about 10cm on the trails - hopefully, it will be gone in short order!

       Locals tell me it's normally ridden in a clockwise direction.

       Great trail with a little bit of everything. Dirt is really good right now. Popular trail but not busy at all once you're on it.

       Great trail for intermediate riders. Trail along canyon may bother those afraid of heights but easily overcome as it is a short stretch of breathtaking views.
