Trail from Alpine Visitor Center up rock stairs is very short, but due to high altitude and stair-climbing, is difficult for some. Trail is very crowded depending on crowds at the Visitor Center.

The Alpine Ridge Trail is a short jaunt up from the Alpine Visitor Center. But take your time the elevation will get your attention and bring a jacket, the winds can have a little bite.
