This hill truly is Dreaded. Avoid climbing this hill at all costs. I was forced to go up it because one of the trails I was going to go up was closed. This was a stiff hike-a-bike most of the way, but I did ride a few sections. It'd be a real brake burner going back down it!

    *single track and there's no technicalities about it. Just a really painful and embarrassing (people walk past ya and see you all red, gasping, and sweating profusely) way to work on endurance and maybe for a beginner (with a few months' experience) to practice riding uphill on dirt without having to worry about rocks or anything.

    Only reason this is beginner is because it's a single track. I nearly died (ok, dramatic) hiking up that hill and had to stop and catch my breath a few times. However, the scenery is gorgeous all the way up, especially during the bloom season. And the top of the hill just makes you feel like a fucking rockstar. Then you can take it down to Four Corners, etc. Ride as much or as little as you want. But it's a looooong, STEEP hill, so you definitely need to be in good shape for it.

    Intermediate rating for steepness, but it isn't technical at all. Some great views off the road too!
