The trail flattens out and the views are great!
|Looking back at the trail|

and enjoying the view before the next incline

|The views were beautiful at the top!||Lindsey wondering "where to next?"|
After 11 miles up and over the ridge
Travis and Lindsey are finally at Marshall Pass
At Marshall Pass, the boys and girls went separate ways.
The girls had a fun 15 miles of downhill on roads
and finished their 26 miles with big smiles.
The boys took the Silver Creek trail for more single track
and an extra 10 miles for a total of 36 miles!
