Due to the nature of the soil and the ridge-top location, these trails should be avoided after it has recently rained. Trails are closed to biking during snow cover. See paccsa.org/lmwebcam for webcam.
This segment of Alberts connects Loop to Locust Trail. The narrower rocky trail requires more advanced skills. You can then follow a gradual climb out Locust Camp Road to the left or return via the unnamed ski area trail to the right.
