This is a short route to the top of the Swan Range and the Alpine Trail. It's a fun one to come down with some of the areas toughest switchbacks at the top of the ridge. Most will use this trail to access Alpine trail and ride a loop down either Strawberry, Hemler or one of the farther trails that meet the Alpine trail.
