Description

If you decide to hike this trail from bottom to top you'll probably be asking yourself "Why?" instead of "Why Not?"... Why Not is a relentless doubletrack ascent with little shelter from the summer sun.

Be on the lookout for service vehicles, as this road is their main artery up and down the mountain.
