Great trail bad luck
the trail was awesome, their were a dozen or so trees down on the way up but while I was riding the forest service cut most of them off the trail and by now probably have all of them off. the creek crossings are very wet and the last 1/2 mile or so up to the pass is covered in snow still and the next 1/2 mile before that the trail is basically a creek from all the snow melt. I blew out my rear tire and sheered the cleet off of my shoe basically right from the top and had to ride down on a mangled tire and only one foot clipped in most of the way down. Will return in a couple of weeks for hopefully better luck.
