      Seasonal closure is posted. Nasty freeze thaw, snow and mud once you drop over the east side of the ridge towards Mad Lake. Still in great...

      So for Mt biking.
      Would it make more sense to approach Alder Ridge from the Chikamin creek road or from Maverick saddle?
      Or just ride up from the bottom?

      Lots of paver switchbacks. Lots of whoops. Quite sandy and it would be ideal to catch it with some moisture.
