Dry, Fallen Trees - This trail is an extreme trail. Once you fork left towards dog lake the trail cuts off and is extremely hard to follow. It isn't rideable in most places. It consists of 3 foot boulders over and over again. We were forced to carry our bikes on our backs. If you are willing to carry your bike up a steep hike for a couple miles then this is well worth it. The views are great and you have a good story to share with your friends. I would recommend heading over the top down to Albion basin as the downhill into Alta is super fun and not too difficult.
