12" of snow reported in Alma this weekend. The surrounding trails will be impassible with snow.

Very beautiful and fun trail, nothing intense. Get up nice and high real quick for great views and a cool mine hidden up top. A couple pin stripes on the full size truck but always worth it. Coming down rocky hill was the perfect send off too. Would like to try it in reverse next time so I can climb it instead.

Between 19 and 20 was definitely challenging in a stock 4Runner. We could have used a little more clearance. Some big boulders with paint scrapes. Might be a little washed out from the rainy spring and summer. The old homestead at the end near Alma was interesting to explore but lots of rusty nails and broken debris. Wear sturdy shoes, no sandals. Lots of pretty aspen groves

Absolutely gorgeous trail on a gorgeous day. The right turn at waypoint 3 is currently blocked off. I’m guessing the forest service doesn’t want people going through the water crossing. But just continued straight onto waypoint 8. No harm no foul.
