From the large parking area at the summit of Wolf Creek
Pass, pedal through the meadow on an obvious trail and cross a creek on a wooden bridge. Turn left
after crossing the bridge—there's a social trail here that heads right and will lead you off track.
From here, the trail climbs steadily through old-growth forest that's been heavily affected by pine beetles or some other tree-killing vermin—a large percentage of the pines here are gray and dead. There are a few tight, steep switchbacks but almost everything is easily rideable by an intermediate to advanced rider.
Shortly after navigating some switchbacks in a scree field, the trail will contour around to a south aspect and you'll come to a "junction" with Treasure Mountain Trail #565
. "Junction" gets quotes here because there are a USFS sign and a rock cairn, but the trail itself is basically non-existent.
Past this junction, the trail gains the ridge just west of and below Alberta Peak, at the top of Wolf Creek
