Technical narrow singletrack, dropping from the Michigan City Road to the Albion Basin Summer Road. Primarily a hiking trail, but infrequently used. This is not climbable on a bike going up, but is a very loose and technical descent going down.

Many bikers descend this from BCC, and then climb up Alta via Catherine's or Supreme, then drop back over to Solitude (Honeycomb) or Brighton (Catherine Pass).

Access Info

Climb Michigan City Road to the top of the steep/loose/babyhead section. Trail starts on the granite creek to your right.

Traditionally Indigenous Territory
