Ester Dome Singletrack

Finally, made it up the hill to the trails. Geoff Orth Joel Buth and crew have done a tremendous job on putting these trails (old map just showing the inner loop) in.

I managed to only do part of the outer loop and and returned via the high side of the inner loop. For this klutz there was plenty of challenge and the ol' heart rate monitor was singing like a chickadee in April. The smoke and haze from the fires near Healy occluded the view of the Alaska Range, but I could tell there are plenty of viewpoints to pause and catch a breath.
