Friday through Sunday bikepacking trip. Parked near the Gateway restaurant and did the 2900' 11.7 mile climb up to the top of Spruce Knob for the night. Saturday rode 53 miles / 4200' following one of the GRUSK routes, stopped at the Sinks of Gandy and did lots of other exploring, and then camped again on Spruce Knob for favorable temperatures. Sunday took the long way down (29 miles and 1300' elevation).
