Trail Information


Quite possibly the most diverse set of trails in the Elbe Hills system, Alder Loop has 3 parts: Inner, lower, and upper. If you want to take your girlfriend/boyfriend/spouse/kid out here and let him/her learn how to wheel, put them on Inner Alder, this is a very forgiving trail segment and has something of everything on it. For the hardcore wheeler, the upper area is just off the Mainline Trail "hill-climb" after you come off the climb bear to the left and follow the off-road trail to the right at the fork once inside the trees. There is a nice rutted out off-camber hole with the choice of 4 routes, one can be done by a stock rig, one can be done with lockers, one can be done with a winch, and the best one, well, it can't! Definitely a do not miss trail in Elbe Hills!

Difficulty Accuracy: Spot On

It's been a few years since I've been to Elbe so I wanted to see how the trails were. Ran this one in the listed direction. It's actually longer than the map shows, trail is the whole way from Mainline Extension to the end of Busywild. There are bypasses to the harder obstacles but plenty of stuff to play on if you want! It's also very easy to get lost/sidetracked at the end so just pay attention to the GPS. It's not bad if you do go the wrong way, just have to turn around or head off on one of the side routes to get back to Mainline.
