The listing for this trail is a bit weird. It actually doesn't start until Crystal Creek Drive. The beginning at Ravenswood Drive goes inbetween properties. But we are not here to hear about that portion of the trail. The climb on Sugar Mountain starts of nice and a bit techy and then, janky climbs up babyhead strewn hell. This section of the trail was really tough even on an Ebike. I did not use boost but did use trail a few times. I'm glad I left really early in the morning to ride this trail, by 7:30 am the temp was in the low 20s. By this point I reached Bear Claw and was just exhausted and my helmet was a soggy mess. I'll be redoing this trail when the weather is a bit cooler to ride Triple T. The portions of it I saw it looked like a techy cross-country trail. Will report on it once I ride it.
