This route is part of what is considered the "Yankee Hill Network". This route follows two Forest Service Roads, 175.1 and 273.2 to take one back and forth from Central City to St. Mary's Glacier through the heart of the Yankee Hill Network. Trail conditions include Forest Service type roads...
Followed this guide starting in Central City (so backwards from how it's written). Took my ex boyfriend with me, we both needed to get out of the city and away from chaos by introducing nature chaos!
Siouxie did incredibly well! I checked her the next day all around and only have cosmetic damage, but it was well worth pushing both our limits. Ross got out a few times to spot me and did an amazing job, we were both truly impressed with the obstacles we were able to clear! I wish I took more pictures and sadly do not have my new GoPro yet, especially because I doubt I'll be doing anything this difficult again until I do a few of my upgrades which could be next summer or possibly the summer after that. For the time being, I'll be using her for the main purpose of getting to better camping spots, hiking trailheads, and handling snow.
