Description

This trail is very similar to Bottom of the Bowl with lots of nicely-planned switchbacks and amazing views. It's a hard climb that will leave you tired, but the trail is flowy enough that you can stay in a climbing rhythm for the most part. There are a couple of short, very technical sections that most people will walk, but it's just a couple minutes of walking total.

Quite a few fallen trees blocking trail but easy to carry the bike over. Fun trail going up with moderate to tough climbs in spots. Nice flora.
