This loop can be ridden in either direction however; the suggested ride direction is clockwise. From the Alice Creek trailhead parking lot, follow the sign for Alice Creek Trail and begin riding up the creek bottom on an old road bed that is now a two-track. The two-track becomes rougher, steeper, and more of a singletrack as the road climbs up several switchbacks to the CDT section on USFS Trail #440. Once on the USFS Trail #440, head east toward Lewis and Clark Pass.

The USFS Trail #440 traverses along the edge of the cliff face seen on your drive into the parking area then over Red Mountain. Sections of this trail are quite rocky and steep with tight switchbacks. After Red Mountain, the trail moves in and out of timbered sections and alpine meadows with excellent sight lines and epic views.

Once at Lewis and Clark Pass, follow the signs toward Alice Creek trailhead approximately a mile and a half below the junction on USFS 4WD Trail #293.
