Description

Known by locals as Hardcore Trail, this is a strenuous route... If you like to punish yourself and feel your lungs squeeze through your ribs, this is the ride for you. Its a brutal climb over 1,000 gained over a mere 2.5 miles. Youll be worked, especially if youve already pedaled up other rides (like Mountain View Trail) to access it.

If you really wanna punish yourself, consider combining this ride with the Double High Five Y. On the bright side, you are rewarded with spectacular views for most of the ride and the vantage point at the top of the ridge makes you forget the pain. 360 views Mammoth Mountain, The Minarets, Mount Ritter, Mount Banner, San Joaquin River Canyon, June Mountain, White Wing Mountain, Mono Craters, Mono Lake, Glass Mountain Ridge, etc. There used to be a fire lookout up here, and youll know why.
