       This ride is an old hiking trail. It felt like there were more uphills than down.

       It's very possible I left some headphones near the dropoff spot at Kelly's Corner (trekz), just slightly off the road on the righthand side. I think there was maybe a pullout there? There was a definitely a tree. Anyways, if you find them, send me an email if you want to make my day! crgorder@gmail.com Thanks!!

       I agree that it felt like more uphills than down. There are 5 climbs along upper and lower Alpine. None are long but each is long enough to be obvious. Took me 2 hours via shuttle.
