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.

We went down hill, starting from White Rock Mountain West to Bradshaw ln, not sure if we would have made it going up the hill. Definitely some of the more intense stuff for our rigs.

Approaching from the west is definitely more difficult once you cross the creek and start the climb. Lots of SxS out here so the the trail is rutted on the climb. Drop-off on the left side as you head to the top, so some rock stacking for small rock ledges and avoiding ruts may be needed for lower clearance vehicles to avoid hugging the left too much. Really only had 2 tough spots that needed a 2nd try and a new line. Made it in a lifted Crosstrek with 30s and a custom front bumper. Gorgeous out here.
