What more can you say? It is an awesome place.

An area called "Where Eagles Dare" I believe, scared the crap out of me, even with the great traction and I'm not normally afraid of heights! Going down was a real butt puckerer. Several of these off Golden Spike trail.

The infamous Golden Crack. Riding alone it took a bit to work up to crossing this. Could see myself upside down under the bike in the crack. Bottomed on the skid plate when I did finally do it, should have gone faster.

Took a 4 day weekend last weekend. Friday was good, Saturday it rained all morning and I got wet helping on a reroute of the Sovereign single track (what little help I was) so didn't ride Saturday afternoon when the sun finally came back out.
There is something for everybody from jeep roads (easy to very difficult) to singletrack. I only make it there once a year, wish I had more time to spend there.
Late fall and early spring work well due to cheap hotels and very few people with temps usually hitting close to 60 in the day.
