Comments: Cloudy forecast never materialized making for a super day up high. Mid week, timing, Toll road closure and route made for a fairly quiet day. If it has rained you'll likely get soaked as Sunset Ridge quite tight in spots but brushing is on the GMC's radar. Lots of open viewing with this loop.
