Upon passing the second gate the road consists of a smooth downhill ride with only two climbs.Once back to Hardscrabble Rd, veer right, and head .6 miles back to the “Y” and then turn right for the last 2.5 miles back to Wolverton Spring.An abundance of wildlife, beautiful views and wildflowers make this loop enjoyable.Aspen groves and lodge pole pine provide plenty of shade either on the path or a short distance from the road.
