Trail is riding well right now and there are no reports of mud, deadfall, or snow.

Hard Guy is hard. But like your daddy taught you, anything worth doing is hard. When you’re tired of the little loops close to town and you want to get up into the upper foothills, Hard Guy is your ticket. It’s one of the best ways to reach the Ridge Road. Settle in, because Hard Guy is a steady 5 miles and 2,000+ feet of climbing. It’s all smooth, fast singletrack, though, and after every steeper section there’s a nice little plateau that allows you to rest. Popular with bikers, hikers, and super fit runners.
