Description

This descent is pretty rough for a 4x4 road, but extra fun on a mountain bike. Moto traffic can be thick, but it provides an opportunity to show how awesome modern mountain bikes are as you rip down rough terrain.

Near the switchback on FS839 Alpine Tunnel

Hancock Pass can be very windy.  And very cold.  Tomichi Pass can be seen in the background, you'll be climbing up that.

This turn can be easily missed after descending Hancock.  Make sure to make the turn onto Tomichi.
