“Singletrack through the alpine/subalpine clime.”
— J. Bella
Northside permits cost $10 per day or seasonal permits are available and can be bought at a kiosk 1/4 mile above the trailhead gate and at some local shops. For more information, visit the Northside website
While ascending Bull of the Woods Mountain, Antoine's is the segment where the high alpine environment is first noticeable. It climbs to a ridge above the Middle Fork Trail/Forest Road 487
trailhead, providing a singletrack route that bypasses a section of the Bull of the Woods Road
for those who wish to stay in the forest.
The descent is awesome; continue straight where Bull of the Woods Road
makes a slight left on the ridge, flow right at the junction with Al's Trail and follow Antoine's through the forest, back across Al's, and around some turns and curves in the rooty forest. Enjoy the flow and ride across the road onto Redi's Run
or drop onto the road for a shorter descent to the lower trails.
