Summary:
Good trail. No real elevation gain or loss, but some fun features and nice rolling trail surface. I can see how it could get overgrown, but it isn't that way now. There are occasional roots/rocks, but nothing too crazy that can't be ridden over by an experienced rider. After said feature the trail usually goes back to nice bench-cut in the pines, so you get quite a nice mix and not sustained hammering or anything.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Resurrection Pass.

Summary:
In the late summer of 04 I went to ride this with a buddy & his Girlfriend. We decided to hike it instead, because of the warning on the sign. While I am new to riding, I want to let you know that this Trail is very overgrown depending on the time of year you go (we had to crouch while hiking in several places), not that it should stop you. There is also a great potential to come to a VERY nasty fall if it happens at the Wrong spot (which are everywhere). This would be a VERY technical ride with having to walk several places not to mention getting your bike over fallen trees. I would suggest only competent riders take this on, but be aware as there are many Hikers on the trail and it's narrow, so be careful. We did pass 2 bikers on the hike that day. As far as wild life....It's Alaska, excpet something. Truefully I'd be more worried about falling.

Trail stewards went down this trail in spring of 06 and did some very substantial clearing.

Summary:
Rode this on the evening of 5-11-04, and the trail was in great condition thanks to the wonderful weather we've had recently. Several trees came down over the winter. All but one was cleared, though with the progress being made its probably gone by now. I Walked most of the roots, then rallied the rhythm section to the point in time to catch a blast of sun and sea breeze. What a view! I wish the Turnagain Arm offered more then the occasional bore tide to surf. There are several sections of this trail that offer a quick, somewhat direct route down to the beach, several hundred feet below. Not shear cliff, but very steep slope angles which put the tree tops about head high. While traversing one of these sections I came across a very stout and noble Bald Eagle perched on a treetop, just arms reach off the trail. It took flight just as I came up along side, what a rush! This trail may not be a 5, but what it lacks in riding is made up for by the location and locals. (wildlife)

Recommended Route:
Hope road to the end, take the trailhead.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Johnson, Devils and Resurrection Passes, Cresent and Lost lake. But not until July 1st I guess, giving us all of 3 months. WOW, thanks SRD!!!!!

Summary:
Forest service calls this a moderate to difficult trail. For once they got it right. It can be done folks. Just tons and tons of roots but very much worth the ride. almost died on avalance shoot last year. Went over the handle bars and fell left....there was nothing left but straight down. Went head first for twenty or so feet down slope before devil's club stopped me. Only a three because of the other spectacular rides in the area. Very scenic and beautiful. Walk the hard parts if you're new to this game and make sure you go with someone. BEWARE OF BEARS
