Riding Almosta Trail route is physically demanding due to rough, overgrown trail conditions in several segments. It's recommended to ride each of the loops in a counter-clockwise direction. The first loop is Stringfield Trail (#625) and Lost Shoe (#627). The second loop consists of Denny's (#626) and Jim & Gayle's (#1959) trails. Again counter-clockwise is preferred. The last mile of Almosta Trail (#622), as you head back to the trailhead, is very steep and will likely require three hike-a-bikes. Total length of this route is approximately 15.8 miles. Until the trail gets trimmed, any exposed skin is going to get plenty of pokes and scratches It is primarily a horse trail, so don't complain about hoof holes. Please, a bike bell is a good idea to prevent surprising horse riders. Getting hurt in this remote and rough area would be a long and difficult rescue.
