A nice section of the CDT that connects Wolf Creek Pass to the summit of the resort and Treasure Mountain Trail #565.

Overview

Typical high-country seasonality applies here: Snow-covered trail is possible as late as the end of July and as early as September.

Description [Suggest Changes]

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 Ski Resort.
