Alp D' Huez is a sweet, short singletrack trail that pops off of and connects back to, Sentinel Pine. Most people descend the trail, using it to finish a ride down Sentinel Pine Trail. Alternatively, it can be a way to avoid some of the initial steep and grueling doubletrack of Sentinel PIne as a climb and provides a longer, smoother and flowier climb to the top of the ridge. Not too technical a climb but when done at speed it'll get the lungs going. Check out the Ladyslippers at the upper junction with Sentinel Pine when they are in season.

       This is commonly ridden North to South, for a bit more action, speed, challenge, and (IMO) fun, hit it from the South side and ride downhill.

       Sentinel down to Alp is one of the most enjoyable sections of the park. If you like fast switch, you'll like ALP.
