Another fun descent on the north side of the stream that kicks out to the Anderson/Ruckman road. There is a very steep ravine section that is almost always filled with scree and leaves at the fastest section. Also, on the weekends, especially on this side of the forest, the Boy Scouts are out with their parents and they don't like mountain bikers so try and stay away if you see any Boy Scouts out. Be careful!

Access Info

The trail start for Alpine Scout is at the fork in the trail to either go right(north) on red trail to the Rockleigh side or left to descend back down the mountain to Anderson Ave.
