Exceptional Single track flow. Well kept, beautiful views and easy access. Small berms on many of the turns make for some fast sections. Easily doable if not preferable on Hardtail but having the full squish was nice on the way back.

Hiked from the start on Alder Creek to Prosser Creek and back, 14.50 mile round-trip. Very beautiful along Alder Creek with lots of water. Crossed Prosser Creek on Hwy 89 because creek is very high. There are quite a few trees down at the start along Alder Creek. You can clamber over or go around.
