This is where I lost control of the ATV. I bailed off in 5th gear and it went into a bunch of trees.

This is where my neighbor, Mike Lane, died five years ago in a tragic Jeep accident. The trail does appear to cross the continental divide, although it narrows significantly, and enters a series of extremely difficult switchbacks. Mike reportedly when down here, but then rolled the Jeep sideways when he tried to climb back up. It's actually not surprising, and the switchbacks are so poorly fashioned that it would be nearly impossible to get up them without getting your jeep sideways to the slope of the hill, at which point it gets very tippy. RIP Mike.
