    • Trail UpdateSurprisingly Doable.-This trail was a nice easy but impressive climb up to the Baldy Ski Lodge. Then from there up to Thunder Mountain (the top of the second ski lift). The second half of the trail is very loose and I got frustrated with spinning wheels in rock and gravel. I don't know how anyone could manage the last steep hill up to the top of Thunder Mountain. A word of caution don't do the "Toiletbowl" trail down on your mountain bike. I surfed through rock and gravel before having the bike shift sideways and doing a handplant into the lovely rocks.
