Here is an update from last years ride. Ride is a lot funner on a full suspension bike. Tried it as a loop this year. Right at 10 miles, 6 up and 4 down. Parked at the trail creek trail head around 630am and headed out. Took a little over 2hrs to get back to the truck. First time riding up the old pass road. I did want to quit and head back a number of times. All rideable but really long for me. I was pretty tired by the time I hit the singletrack climb. I did see two different momma moose with babies on the way up. The downhill had a few more rutted out root drops than I remember from last year. I put the bike down twice but nothing major. Still a great ride a little funner if you can shuttle though in my opinion.
Some video showing what the the downhill looks like.
GET OUT AND RIDE IT!
