“A service road climb to the top of Rendezvous Ski Lift, followed by a quick ride down.”— John Ives

Electric Mountain Bikes Unknown
The out-and-back starts at the Union Creek Village at the access gate, but you could also start in the Center Village by following the Colorado Trail up to the intersection with the A-Road.
Grind uphill past the Woodward Camp snow hill. Watch for the second fork in the road which will be the R-Road. Each of the two forks has a sign on the righthand option that says something to mountain bikers that those are dead end trails. This is true.
At the second fork, which is only marked by the dead end sign and no reference to R-Road, turn right and start a long climb past the top of the Union Creek Lift. Take your first left and head towards the base of the Sierra and Rendezvous lifts. Stay left as you pass the bottom of the Sierra lift to follow the Rendezvous Lift Access Road for one final grind to the top.
The Elk Alley trail can be entered at multiple points on the return descent if you want to sample some singletrack.
