One large tree down at the bottom of hill 3/4 of the way up. Great view of the Granby Valley below. Was thinking of going over the top down...

 Tough climb but worth it! There are steep connecting trails at the end if the Thimble trail that arent indicated and will bring you down to Fishermans creek FSR which is another gruelling ride up to the beggining of the Thimble mtn trail which made it seem like it was uphill both ways! There are no trail signs but intermittent cell service. Good, clean trails otherwise and well worth the few hours of riding.
