Checked out the new High Ridge Trail and the rerouted Alp D' Huez Trail along with a bunch of off-trail wandering.

The trail is recommended to be ridden downhill (CCW if you do the full loop) so I hiked it uphill, which is what I would recommend for other hikers as this trail gets more use. I feel it's better to see the bikers coming from a distance and thus be out of their way ahead of their arrival. Good thing I did as the trail was BUSY! I encountered too many bikers to count, and almost a dozen more than once due to them riding more than one lap.
The one biker who I met four times who he was riding an e-bike... go figure. In fact the last time we met I said he was doing it the lazy way, which he happily confirmed.
It didn't happen to register with me until after the hike that e-bikes and/or pedal-assist bikes are NOT authorized on any trails in the Hawes Trail System.
(Of course as you can see by the last photo, at the moment there are no metal posts or signs officially designating anything)
I took far too many photos so I only posted those from the High Ridge Trail, not the re-routed Alp D'Huez Trail.
