    #41379 in Mountain Biking

It’s a 3 mile hike a bike to get to what is the northern end of the southern half of the Alpine trail #7.
If you brought pads, now’s the time to put them on. ???? For the next 1.5 miles you will experience the best technical riding of this epic trail. You can take a right, down the Hall Lake trail and make a loop... but that’s not what this description is for.
From the junction with the Hall Lake trail you will hike your bike for another 1.5 miles, coming to Puddle Lakes. The trail flattens out somewhat and you can ride most of the trail to it’s junction with Trinkus / Bond Lakes. There are some extremely brushy areas along the trail. If you exit by Trinkus / Bond, you will go through some of the worst brush above Trinkus and between the two lakes.

Access Info

From just north of Swan, take the Six Mile Peak road for 3 miles to reach the Six Mile Peak trail. The Alpine trail is 3 miles up the trail.
