    Got ride up to Handy Springs campground via FR5900. Road is rough, but 4WD is not needed (we took a minivan). Trail along Devil's Backbone has been restored after 2007 fire. Entire trail is well-signed thanks to local ORV club. 1st 8 miles of trail had substantial snow (and this was late June); would recommend waiting until July to try this route. The last 10 mile descent along Pot Peak trail was incredible, spectacular views and single-track - totally worth the hassle of carrying bike over snow fields. Hike-a-bike up switchbacks in rock field (about 2/3 of way through ride) is very tough and requires substantial stamina. Highly recommended ride - not 5 stars due to snow and challenges of getting to top (riding up to Handy Springs would be a tough way to start this ride).

    The uphill climb described in the trail guide has not been maintained since the Pot Peak fire, and the steep climb up the ridgeline is littered with fallen trees and dense scrub. As such it is unrideable, and the forest road is recommended to get to the Pot Peak descent as an alternative.
