“This ascent of an old fire road accesses several pitches of moderate to steep glades.

Be considerate to local neighbors when parking.
This route is usually best after at least 12 to 18" of snowfall. Expect to take an hour for the ascent from the car to the upper portion of the ridge. The trail is easy to follow and there are some side tracks that access different portions of the ridge.
Ski or ride down several unique gladed pitches. The upper pitch directly off the ridge ranges from very steep (I measure 40 degree sustained pitch in some areas) to moderate. The upper pitch is by far the best. Continue traveling towards the rocks for steeper pitches.
Lower sections have denser trees and scrub.
