This single track trail climbs steeply from the Alder Creek Jeep Road to the northwest to the junction with trails 4138 and 221. There is a nice small lake just west of the summit along the trail. Expect to do some hike a bike in the steeper rocky sections going uphill. The views in the area are great.

Access Info

Access via the Alder Creek Jeep Road 341 about 3 miles south of Morgan Creek Summit.

      Trail is dry and clear. No blowdowns. Tied the trail into a ride down past Black Mountain. Great riding!
