The Albion Basin Trail is an out-n-back trail that rides along the smooth doubletrack road. This is a very popular trail for families and beginning riders due to the smooth surface, although there is a bit of a climb. Of course you can turn back at any time.
This trail is especially popular in July thanks to the amazing wildflowers and other scenery. If you are riding during the peak wildflower season be sure to watch for the other hikers and bikers in the area who may not be looking for you.
You may also spot wildlife in the area, especially moose and deer. Be sure to give them space and bring a camera with a wide and and telephoto lens.
