From the Perimeter Loop, this trail starts with a short but furious uphill section heading west and a fast, short saddle rising into another short climb. A sustained downhill section follows. The singletrack then enters into a longish climb and passes the entrance to the Proving Grounds Advanced Drop at left. Alpha then becomes a series of descents, rises, and switchbacks among many small ridges. The trail eventually crosses a long wooden bridge and passes the Landing Zone before heading back north. The return has an optional jump feature and then a taxing uphill section. Alpha ends with a wooden berm and wooden bridge features and some last downhill fun--ending at the West Lake Trail just east of the Alpha entrance.

Access Info

From Perimeter Trail, west of Stryker Lake, near the intersection with West Lake Trail.

 This trail is awesome! A little bit of everything... downhill, climbs, drops, corkscrews, table top jumps, bridges, etc.and is still being polished! Probably classify as Intermediate this is a bit more difficult than Beginner but a sweet step up from the Basic Training Skills Area.
