Description

This sustained climb provides a nice dirt alternative to climbing up Lickskillet Road when trying to get to the top of Sunshine from Lefthand Canyon. A cyclocross bike or hardtail would be ideal given the rocky nature of this trail, but some guts and tough skinny tires will also get the job done in a pinch. Once you've reached the upper gate, either head down the open section of County Road 83 back towards Sunshine Canyon or up and over the Escape Route to Lee Hill and Olde Stage.
