If the season and conditions are right, you may have an opportunity to observe waterfowl at tiny George’s Lake. This can make for a scenic lunch spot if you’ve taken your lunch along.
This short ride has an option to connect to the scenic Luna Lake Long and Short Loop Trails (# 2 and # 2A) for a longer ride for those who prefer.
Follow the trail marked by blue diamonds and by bicycle symbols and please respect private property. You will need to open and pass through a gate about 2 miles into the route. Please close the gate behind you. You will come to the intersection of FR 275 2.5 miles later, where you will need to choose to return to Alpine or continue on to Luna Lake Loop Trails.
This route is close to the amenities of Alpine, yet quiet and an often welcome escape. There is a campground nearby at Luna Lake. No water is available on this loop.
This loop begins just west of the Alpine Ranger Station on Hwy. 191 and ends to the east at Forest Road (FR) 275. Follow FR 275 to Hwy. 180 and head back west to the Alpine Ranger Station. You may choose to connect to the Luna Lake Loop to make a longer ride from FR 275.
