"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."
