There are shorter rides you can do in Kluane National Park such as the Auriol Trail; a 15km loop with an elevation gain of 367m. You can make the Auriol loop longer by dropping bikes and hiking into the alpine at the top of the loop. Park directions are comprehensive as is signage and compared to the Cottonwood the Auriol is a pleasant ramble although one that is heavily frequented by grizzlies. Keep the noise level and alertness high The views into the Ruby Range are astoundingly good bang for the buck and most of the loop is totally rideable. The singletrack descent in particular is of high quality. Best ridden in clockwise direction to avoid steep switchback section.

       I recommend taking the left branch at the intersection as you go up. Mostly because there is section on the right end that is too narrow to pedal and hiking you bike up in this area is a pain. It is possible to go down on it if you keep the pedals level. There‚Äôs also a couple steep features on the right that would be quite a feat to climb.
