    Alpine Valley Resort

If you are looking to challenge your bike handling, this is the trail to do it With jumps, large rock gardens, log step down, berms and the big bridge there is plenty of fun to be had on this trail. For daredevil riders, the largest step-down jump at Alpine Valley crosses this trail and offers the upgrade to a double diamond track they may be looking for (not part of route mapped here). There are nearly as many advanced features packed into this short section as there are throughout the rest of Alpine Valley. So prepare to be tested!

Access Info

The trail starts near the junction between Jack and Skills Mark and can be accessed from either trail, but rides most naturally coming from Skills Mark. It ends all the way down at the AVR service road a short way from the trailhead.

Disclaimer

Most features do not have by-pass options so inexperienced riders should expect to be walking their bikes for most of the trail. The sole exception is the large step-down jump, which is not part of the path mapped here, but does cut across it.
