Trail Overview

This track takes you from the Alpine Divide behind Tal-Wi-Wi up on the mountain behind the town of Alpine. At the end of the trail there are memorials in the form of a flag pole with an American flag flying year around. Other small memorials to friends, veterans and pets can be found scattered in the area. A nice picnic bench has been placed to further enjoy the area. The view of the town of Alpine is fantastic. There are additional overlooks in the area that are worth exploring on foot while there.

Difficulty

Much of the road is passable by most vehicles but parts are very rocky and uneven. The ride can get bumpy. There are a couple of water crossings that are generally just a trickle but can wash out the rode and flow during wet times. Parts of the trail will be rocky with the last 1/2 mile of the trail being the most rockt and uneven with a mild inclinew with four wheel drive near essential.
