Alum Creek Phase 2 is the next step up on the difficult meter after the Alum Creek Phase 1 Trail. Phase 2 adds many log piles, narrow ladder-bridges and climbs. Like Phase 1, Phase 2 runs next to a portion of the reservoir and offers great scenery.

I would hike the trail backwards so you you can see bikes sooner. This is a bike trail but also good for hiking

Trail was okay. Needs better markers. Not great for hiking, but looked great for mountain biking.

Fun trail to hike. Best way to go is clockwise around trail, bikes go counterclockwise you can see them coming up towards you.

From the pics/map and dozens of times I've been there this looks like its the Alum Creek Phase 2 mountain bike trail. If so: this trail is amazing. COMBO does a great job with upkeep and it's both more smooth and more challenging than phase 1 (slightly less rooty/slightly more challenging obstacles and hills). I think it's actually about 6 miles total. Great place to ride!
