Trail Overview

Alexander Mountain, or Forest Service Road 1703, runs between Locke, on the southwest end near Devil's Canyon, to Hurricane Creek Rd, near White Rock on the northeast end. It can be run either direction. This trail offers beautiful scenery with a mix of challenging and easy trail sections. The road at the top of the mountain is easy with very little difficulty, while the most challenging portion of this trail will be the climb/decent between Hurricane Creek and the top of Alexander Mtn, including the creek crossing. There are a few large camping spots on the top of the mountain and some smaller spots near the creek.

Difficulty

The climb from Hurricane Creek to the top of Alexander Mountain is rutted, with loose rocks and off-camber sections. Also, the water crossing at Hurricane Creek can range from 18-24" deep or more depending on the time of year.
