Alpine Trail in CO Tracks?

Now that we finally got the Rainbow trail documented, does any one have Active Log tracks for the Alpine trail east of Ridgeway?

A lame friend of mine had the attached filtered track that was recorded by Lewis & Clark with a sextent. Need Active Log with time stamps.

No I will check them out, sure miss the open riding in the western states, Texas is mostly private land, Have to drive 4.5 hours to Cloudcroft.

Cloudcroft is great, got 12th OA at a nationl there in 79. I have tracks of area if you want them. Rim trail is best.

Join a local Enduro club, they will have a lease to ride on one of the giant ranches with oil wells all over it but a few cows so the owner can still wear boots and hat.

Yeah, already done that, Have joined the local club and they have a great lease on a ranch, All single track NO QUADS
But still miss the wide open areas in the west.
Sold all my big bikes ( 650 and 1150) as I only ride at the ranch or on trips like Colorado this Summer, I have tracks for Cloudcroft so thanks anyway
Take care and stay in touch
Robert

gps tracks

Here is the Tracks for Trail 225 ALPINE TRAIL
it's only 99 switchbacks, felt more like 299, as the heavy Rains from the day before took all of the little dirt there was on the trail away, so it was very rocky, but still very Fun.
Below is just one of the switchbacks,

Cool pics, and thanks for posting the GPS track. We plugged into Google Earth and it looks like a great ride. How "challenging" is it? Did you guys start from the Silver Jack reservoir end? Is there a road from Ridgeway to the reservoir, in other words could we unload the bikes at Silver Jack, or would you get on the bikes out of Ridgeway? Thanks for any info.

MORE Tracks

We Rode 9 miles HWY from Ouray to Ridgeway, Jumpped on dirt roads for 14 miles, took the Nate Creek Trail (7.2 miles) to a ATV trail # 240 (5.2 miles) back on Main Dirt road for 2.1 miles to Trail 225 Trail head. Rode the Alpine trail then back on Dirt Roads for 10 miles, jumped on HWY for 11.9 miles to Lake City for Lunch and Gas, After that we took Engineer Pass back to Ouray .
Total for the day was 124 miles, including a few short side trips on the way back. It was a GREAT LONG Day of riding our small Dual Sports.
The trail is not for the Timid or any big Bikes ( 650's etc, Not that you could not do it but it just wouldn't be as fun as on a small bike.), The Nate Creek Trail has a very Steep climb with very tight Switchbacks and is very narrow, You would not want to screw up there. The Alpine trail is easier but can be very tough in spots, Most of the switchbacks are ride-able but that being said, I would not recommend it for any beginners, or people that have trouble with Heights.
.
attached unfiltered tracks for Ouray to Lakecity via nate Creek Trail & Alpine Trail.
