Easier alternative to Lower Rings but not as smooth as the Bear Valley to Lake Alpine Trail. Enter at the top near the stop sign at the intersection of Hwy 207 and Hwy 4. You can also ride it the other way by entering at the bottom at the east end of the Lodgepole campground, but after it dries out, there can be some steep loose sections that will be a "hike-a-bike" to get up. Note: From the bottom of this trail you can connect with The Ring Trail then onto the Power Line Trail and end up on the Granite Slab Trail into Bear Valley Village.

Recently cleared of brush at the top. Still a little loose at the steep section. Needs a re-route there.
