Comments: FYI If you park in the Horse Flats campground an Adventure Pass IS NOT VALID. It is valid if you park in the day use area up the road or just outside the entrance gate to the campgrounds.

Comments: This is a great sport route. A bit after the last bolt it felt like class three so putting pro in would help ease the mind but it isn't necessary.
