Start line!

Crossing scree field (trail switchbacks across this field a couple times)

Bottom 1/3 of trail not-so-rocky and more vegetation.
Nov 25, 2017 near North S…, SD
Top 1/3 of trail technically challenging.  This resulted in a lot of hike-a-bike for this mediocre rider on the way up.  But the fun descent was well worth the effort.
Nov 25, 2017 near North S…, SD
Middle 1/3 of trail fun riding with frequent rock/root outcroppings to keep you on your toes.
