Alpha Trail & Crystal Ridge Mountain Bike Trail System

Location: Franklin, WI 
Driving time: about 20 mins (10.9 miles)

Directions: Google Maps Trailhead for Alpha Trail: 6740 S. 92 St. Located at the toboggan hill in Whitnall Park's Winter Sports Area (northeast of the golf course). If you are driving to the trail, park at the Whitnall Golf Course lot, 6751 S. 92 St, and ride your bike to the trailhead, northeast of the lot.

Comments: The Alpha Trail begins at the Winter Sports Area of Whitnall Park and heads eastward to the Crystal Ridge area of the Root River Parkway. It has 4.7 miles of Easier and 2.7 miles of More Difficult trails. The eastern part of the trail system is part of the Crystal Ridge Ski area. It is located at 7900 W Crystal Ridge Dr, Franklin, WI. One of our members road Crystal Ridge. She writes: "If you just go around the back you should see the trail heading down the slope into the woods. If you are getting there from the Parkway trail head into the Archery area and look for the trail into the woods to the north. That should drop you right around there somewhere depending on which trail you take. [Crystal Ridge] had a decent climb/downhill with some cool single track winding through the woods." (Thanks for the info, Katie!)
