One of the major end-end trunks of the Mice.
If you are looking to climb from the bottom, you will 99% likely be on this for some stretch of time.

It is a green level climb ... mostly, there are some rock gardens that bump it to a blue but nothing dangerous. There are some nice Mice-esque diversions that take you on on rocks rather than just boring commute pedaling.

Typically, riders would peel off onto Bobcat midway (via most traveled path) but the new reroute has opened up a shortcut climb to save some distance.

      Tree gone; mind the root hole until it can be repacked.
