Local favorite ride, to connect from Timpanooke or drop out. Trail goes up and down, and is mostly pretty smooth. The drop down to Timpanooke is fast and fun. This trail connected with Ridge 157 and South Fork Little Deer Creek are probably the most biked and liked trails up at the Alpine Loop Summit.

Winter - This trail is excellent in either direction. It rolls enough for some fun downhill both ways. If you spin up the road from Pine Hollow this is a great place to start the real fat bike riding, and you can roll on some great packed singletrack all the way back to the trail head via Pine Hollow.
