Super fun downhill ride. Mostly a hike-a-bike on the way up though you can ride some sections for sure. Fast flowing single-track with glacial slick rock sections mixed in. Lots of drops throughout with technical features that will challenge most riders. Keep an eye out for secret sections off of the main trail...

Access Info

Drive or pedal out the Dyea road. As soon as the road turns to dirt the trailhead is on the right. Small parking area on the left across from trailhead.
