Fat bikable


Wind blown drifted snow with bare spots. Could ride about 1/2 of the time, had to push and post hole in the snow about 1/2 the time. My buddy's fat bike only helped a little.

6" of snow with a decent packed tread. More snow bikes please come pack this down.

Good to go!

Should be good to go!

Supposedly in good condition but closed by order of the USFS.


Trail condition updated to Poor.

Several mud puddles. Ride through 'em, you'll survive a little dirt.
