Hiking trail to the alpine. Multiuse so yield to hikers.

Top section is side hilled rough single track with tight hiker corners. Bottom section is faster, rooty, slightly less technical unless wet.

About a dozen trees down across the trail in various spots from trailhead to 3/4 way to summit, will need proper saws.
