    Alpine Road (Dirt)

    Does anyone know if Alpine Road dirt is open? I haven't been able to find any information either way...

    Thanks. Looking for a 5k day of climbing starting there and going into Monte Bello.

    For a big climbing day...before going to Montebello...climb up crazy pete's then down the road to rapley ranch, and jump on the bay area ridge trail and take that back to russian ridge. After that, head over to montebello and work some of those trails in. The bay area ridge trail from rapley ranch road to russian ridge is awesome with great views.

    Here is a route from many years back of a 10k route we did, starting at the bottom of Windy Hill.
    10k B.A.R.F. Ride

    Would need some changes, like removing the segment through Los Trancos (not a huge loss of altitude gain). And some improvements could be done, such as doing the trail in Russian Ridge that parallels Skyline instead of riding on Skyline.
