Found Love on this Ride
Went up to the summit on this ride with my e-bike buddy and kept up as best I could. The vertical really drained his battery so he needed to turn around at the third viewpoint. I continued on to the summit and came back down. The trail is in great shape and the weather was cool and dry. I was in the mood for exploring, and detoured down the Change Creek trail to the Iron Horse trail. I won't do this again. It is a neat trail but too tech, narrow, and gnarly for the bike. The switchbacks are endless and very tight for about a mile and a half before the Iron Horse. If you still try it, turn on to the Pond Trail or you will have to bushwhack for a mile going around the pond. I found "Adam and Eve" just before the descent near Hall Point. It was a good exploring trek today but stick to the Olallie and the new trails to be put in for Phase Two.
