  1. Several years ago I bike/walked up to where Hwys has their study plot. It had been brushed to that point and was a thick wall of re-gen beyond. A bit treacherous biking down as the carpets of 8-10inch high pungy sticks, left behind by the mower, attempted to redirect my tire and ensure a puncture wound if I crashed!

  2. May 2015 went all the way to the pass. I had tried once before and gave up at the thick wall of re-gen mentioned by Dave. This time just battled on – for a bit it was easier to the sides of the trail. Not much further and the trail became easy to follow again, although this was probably because the brush was still buried under snow. Grand views from the peak of the ridge above the pass.
