Last Known StatusOpen

This 13 mile route makes its way up Belanger Pass and around the Syncline Mountains to the union of Flume Creek and Alfred Creek.

The trail is moderately challenging but has gradual elevation climbs and eventually goes past the tree line. The terrain mainly consists of hardpack and loose rocks and wide mud puddles and a few deep water crossings.

The trailhead has a paved parking lot, vault toilets, a picnic table and informational kiosk. As of this writing there is no fee to ride.
