Because of a radio repeater, the area just south of Dolly Sods will never be classified as wilderness, but it sure feels like it. This ride traverses out across Flat Rock Plains to the repeater tower and the edge of Roaring Plains. You'll know where the name "roaring" comes from when you see the one-sided spruce trees and hear the ever-constant wind roaring through them. Highlights: One short, steep, loose gravel section; views, wind. Caution: This area is known for violent weather and dense fog.

FS 70 towards to the end of the gate seems to be a nice climb up, after getting on to flat rock plains, it gets tougher getting up to the top (several steep climbs) Once you're on the top, you get a nice view of the area. ON the way back down on the trail, it's all downhill which some downhill frantics will love ride down without stopping until getting to the end of the trail! :-) Good ride, but some sections are of loose gravel that makes the downhill more challenging by controlling the bike down.
