A very old trail with many steep ups and downs. Very technical, and the climbs are difficult to clean. There are some nice slabs on the trail. You won’t get your flow here, but it can be rewarding.

      Alt trail is Almost unridable. Hiked up and down it. If you think you will be rewarded with a view at the top of the alt trail....you’re wrong....

      Not much of a trail IMHO. One cool rock outcropping, some unrideable bits, overgrown and not much else. Other much more fun trails in the area.

       Rode this July 2015, very steep climb, spent most of the time walking my bike. No big features just very steep climb on a narrow trail!
