Usually ridden as part of a loop including nearby Alpine and Tire Mountain trails (various options exist). Some aerobic singletrack and converted double track climbs are followed by some great XC descending, some of which can be quite loose due to shale and unusually poor (for the area) soil. Makes for great fun.

Access Info

Ride Alpine trail until you hit the Tire Mountain junction shortly after Windy Pass, then climb/descend Tire Mtn until their is a well marked junction for the Cloverpatch trail on your left shortly before hitting the 5824 rd (if you hit this, you went slightly too far). Cloverpatch will eventually dump you out on another gravel road after a few miles. If you intend to climb back to Alpine to do the ATCA or Creampuff loop, you then descend down the road to your right until another big road on your left merges with that road. Follow the signs from there to the Cloverpatch-Alpine connector. Ride up the numerous switchbacks until you are on another gravel road. Take a left and climb a bit more. You will end up on the 5828 road and Alpine Trail will be on your left and right. Take the right to descend to your car.
