Description

Riding this trail north to south is most popular; however, there are fun descents on both ends of the trail. The north and south trailheads are 30 miles apart on the Seward Highway for shuttling cars.

By mid or late June, the trail is usually overgrown and becomes a little less fun. Downed trees across the trail and numerous shallow water crossings are often present in early or mid June. Trail tread is mostly fast and flowy, but there are plenty of shorter sections of rock and root gardens. Unlike Resurrection Pass, Devil's Pass, or Lost Lake, riding above treeline is limited to a mile or two at the pass. Two lakes at the pass provide an opportunity to cool off and have lunch.

Much more technical than anticipated. Definitely a lot harder than the Crescent Lake trail. Pretty overgrown in a lot of spots. 14mi
