Driving Directions

Enter the thick forests of the natural park, made up of large alpine and spruce trees, with a completely shaded area to walk on for miles. The trail maintains an even rocky and dirt surface, staying about 2 to 3 feet wide the entire time. After a couple miles, the trail follows along Alder Creek. Along the route, you'll find plenty of primitive camping spots too.

The small trail is shared with plenty of others, including bicyclists, campers, horseback riders, cross-country skiers, and snowshoers.

The trail travels up and down mountains, topping off at the Dome Shaped Mountain at over 8,000 feet, where travelers can enjoy and a 360-degree view of the peaks. There's another elevated view at Eagles Point before the trail begins traveling downhill completely towards the end trailhead at Skalkaho Pass.
