This trail starts at the T-intersection just past the Hotel Alyeska (there's a sign directing bikes). They've worked on a new section of trail and covered it with wood chips ... follow this trail and stay right on the dirt road. After pedaling uphill for a bit, watch for a trail to the right.

There's not an obvious sign, but it's an obvious trail. This connects you to the actual Winner Creek Trail, where you'll hang a left and pedal up a short incline. After that, the trail is fairly level, and there's a long section of planks with steps you'll have to cover. The steps aren't too bad at first, but there are some more difficult parts that may require hike-a-bike.

After the plank section, you'll come to an intersection. Stay left to continue to the hand tram. If you go right on the Upper Winner Creek Trail it becomes much more difficult with large rocks, roots and obstacles! The hand-tram trail is much easier but does have a few rocks. You can turn around at the hand-tram or load your bike up on the racks on the tram and continue across! Continuing across the tram will bring you to the Crow Creek road.

This is a popular trail so be aware of other users and moose!
