Ascent Trip Report

A steep but fun bike ride up the dirt road. It is a little slippery in spots but would be fine on foot. I saw a coyote up close that seemed very acquainted with people because it got within a few yards of me without any concern. Great views up top but the sublime aspect is taken away by all the radio towers in the vicinity.
