A great fully-featured AM ride, with long, but relatively easy access.

CSHM is an excellent trail accessed off the end of the Alice Lake parking lot and up a short but steep access road.
Entrance is flat and loamy, quickly turning in to a stepped descent of small broken rock and hard(ish) pack. A few upward rock rolls interrupt an otherwise twisty dirt and mildly-rooted singletrack.
You'll encounter a nice fat log ride, with angled 12" skinny exit, a single double-bubble rock roll (hit it from the left of the small willow patch or you'll be forced to turn mid-roll). Another quick jaunt through some rolling and dropping dirt track with one short but very steep bit of woodwork, followed quickly by a short but very rough broken rock drop around a tree. You'll be rewarded with a nice wide downward curve to the right, like a 200' long berm, in to an intersection (stay right for exit to cul-de-sac), which rolls quickly over small optional bridges and gravel to the cul-de-sac on Tantalus Rd.

Intermediate Riders: Very doable for intermediate riders willing to walk the few burly required features, keep your speed or lose your momentum on the roots.

Experienced Riders: Let fly through all but the broken rock drop (huck it with caution, rock wall on the right, air on the left) be wary the double-bubble rock roll if you enter from the right side at speed.

Access Info

Travel to the Northern-most end of the Alice Lake parking lot & campground, ride past the yellow gate, the road takes a hard right, then a left switchback and keep following, sign for CSHM will be on the left - total distance past the gate, about 800m.
