Hancock Lake Trail 1422 Professional Review and Guide
"This trail offers just the right amount of challenge for aggressive, stock SUVs. There are outstanding views on the upper section. Two side trips are recommended: The first is to Hancock Lake, which requires passing through a fairly rocky section. The second is to the Alpine Tunnel over a well-maintained and easy ledge road. This road has signs along the way to explain the history of the area. ATVs can unload at a small parking area near Hancock Townsite. There are several fairly rocky sections but this trail is passable by stock, high-clearance vehicles with low-range gearing. Skid plates are helpful. The drive should not be attempted if snow is on the trail. Alpine Tunnel Road 839 is an easy graded gravel road."
