Combined this with Willard peak from the north
Attempted ski descent. Snow was scetchy so we decide better safe than sorry. Goat almost to the saddle though.
Rode my bike all the way to the top. sweet sigle track coming down. nice sunny day. My friend bonked bad and had to crawl the last 100 feet, poor guy.
Big Mountain! Trail isn't very steep no matter what route is taken, but plan on a long day. You'll feel it in the morning! Popular trail, so there's always good stories to swap and people to meet.
Several ascents. Skyline trail and North Fork Park trails are long, but gentle grades make for easy hiking. Willard Basin route is short and sweet if you have a high clearance vehicle. Outstanding views.
