Alpine Trail, Oregon

   
The Alpine Trail is widely know to be a popular Mountain Bike trail.  Hikers should expect to see mountain bikes on their journey.  The trail is open to all users (Hikers, Mountain Bikes, Horses and Motorcycles).  Also this is only the lower part of the Alpine Trail. Says Benjamin

During summer months Alpine trail is ridden by thousands of people on mountain bikes. Says John

There are two trailheads to chose from, one in each end, so if you can get a ride from someone, you can backcountry hike it just one way. This wilderness trail has a total elevation difference of 2,291 feet, and that is about average. At parts of the year this vicinity sees very little rain, so do check for current fire restrictions before you go if you plan to bring a stove or make a camp fire. Keep in mind that this is a long hiking trail, so do pack enough food to last the whole trip. Alpine Trail goes through some very different elevations, so keep in mind that you may need to dress differently at different elevations. Being 10.2 miles long; it's a long great outdoors hiking trail. You should count on this backcountry hike taking about 9 hours, but you never know stuff could go wrong and you could get stuck so be prepared for that.
