“A short alternative to riding on the paved trail.
— John Humenick
No horses; please don't ride when wet
The alternate trail, marked with black text (ALT) on a white blaze, parallels the main, paved trail. While the main trail is paved, the alt trail is dirt with some singletrack and is a nice alternative to riding on the paved surface. It's perfect for families with kids who want to mountain bike or at least ride off road. The short rise and falls in the trail are enough to make it interesting without it being daunting to new riders.
