This trail is a hike-a-bike climb for much of the way with an amazing view on the ride down.

Overview

Closed September - March.
An out-and-back ride along the April Bowl Trail with some of the highest viewpoints in the area. Head out on this long singletrack that switchbacks upward before turning into a loose, steep, alpine trail.

You may take the trail towards the top of April Bowl and back down or hike-a-bike the rest of the way up Hatch Peak for an amazing view and steep ride down.

Dogs: Off-leash

Description

This trail begins right at the Summit Lake Recreation Area parking lot at the crest of Hatcher Pass. It features a beautiful climb at a steep grade that passes a lovely turquoise tarn called April Bowl and continues up the ridge to Hatch Peak at an elevation of 4,811 ft above sea level. Doing this trail in the late evening will minimize the foot traffic you have to slow down for as this is a multi-use trail.
