There are now two south routes.

Both of these routes have a short section (.6) miles of dirt road near Lake Adger.

The dirt road is smooth with no loose gravel. Don’t let this prevent you from riding one of these great routes with many twisty roads, very little traffic and great mountain views.


South 212 is in two parts. This route goes up to the Skyuka overlook.  The route is in two parts.  It also travel up Green River Cove road that has some extreme switchbacks near the top of the road.  There is often a lot of traffic with kyak and raft vehicles on this road.

If you want to avoid this road don’t turn right onto Green River Cove road. Instead continue straight for .7 miles and turn right on Holbert Cove road. You’ll end up at the same place when you get to the top. A track for this detour is included.


South 186 uses Holbert Cove road and does not go up to the Syuka overlook.
