First to Review

Taking the Harding up seems better. It’s a well kept forest road only open to bikes and foot traffic, super exposed though. I tagged Modjeska Peak while I was up there. The rest is a relatively well kept, nice wide single track down. No brush to tear up your shins. There are 2 life saving springs to filter some more water and cool off. Also the upper couple miles is quite a bit more shaded than I would have expected. Most is super exposed on the way down too. I brought 4.5 liters and should have had at least 6 unless you are going to filter on the way down, then 4.5 was great and it was mid day in August when I did it, cause I make poor choices. . The map on the last couple miles of road down from the single track is not accurate.
