Biggie Details

Got out to ride a bit of the Biggie Loop. The section that we rode was Tin Cup Intercept Trail, Tin Cup Pass, Tunnel Lakes Trail, Alpine Tunnel Road. High Alpine riding, so gorgeous up there, also kinda crazy in spots. I’m gonna go over what I remembered, relearned and discovered today!

Tin Cup Intercept Trl. This is the first/grassy/cairns marked section, not sure it would be visible at all at night! Faint tread/backslope, and a few cairns is all.

More of the grassy section of Tin Cup Intercept, looking towards Napoleaon Pass where Biggie riders will traverse from.

Just below Snow Plug, Thru the Notch, begin traverse/Willow section.

Willow sidehill section on TC Intercept. I flagged it pretty good as it is very vague in spots, look for orange flags in the willows. Be careful, its thin.

TC Intercept hits an old double track coming off the top of Tin Cup Pass, turns right and heads down to this gate, easiest go left around high side. Closed to motor vehicles. Pictured in the background is a switchback on Tin Cup Pass, head down pass.

Start of Alpine Tunnel Road, good road built into a cliffside and there are a few rock slides onto the road and a couple washouts, descend with caution, Remember to turn left onto Tomichi Pass at first switchback.

Rock Slide on Alpine Tunnel Road, easily passable, but beware of the drop to your right!!!
