Alpha Trail is a short and easy trail with one or two nice little technical spots. It is fairly straight between the start and end and is ideal to find your trail wheels.

Access Info

Look for the small Alpha sign about 10 feet high on a tree, just to the left as you turn from West Hill Dam Road onto Pudding Street.
