Cat Scratch Fever is a short downhill trail starting from half way up Rick's Roost and ending at the top of Alpine Meadows. At the trail head the original line goes left and rather straight down the fall line where the right was built later and has a bit more to it with lower over all grades and more corners. The bottom 400m was re-worked with machine time donated by Howler Contracting through fire thinning spring of 2019.

It's a great starter trail for people wanting a bit more of a challenge but without going crazy.

For a longer run you can link straight into the expert trail Mandatory Suicide and on into Mel's Dilemma before finishing on Alta Lake Road.

Access Info

Access to the trail head can be reached by either riding up Rick's Roost (located at the top of Alpine Way) or down off the flank trail.
