Yes, it's almost heaven on a bike. Leaving Alma, turn on to Clapboard Canyon Rd, so named by early settlers because when horses and wagons would cross the wooden bridge, the clap, clap sound would echo up and down the Mill Creek Valley. These backroads lead you into the high hills. In the early 20th century, this area was the birthplace of Lewis Walt, who grew up to become a four-star general, serving in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. Then it’s down into Hessdale, a town settle in the 1850s as Bismarck by German immigrant, then changed by the U.S. Post Office to Halifax in 1885, only to be name Hessdale by the famous Atchison, Topeka, & Santa Fe Railroad. This small ghost town was once a major shipping point for cattle to cities to the east. Finish your way along the see-forever crest of Skyline Rd, before descending back down to Alma. Finish the ride by stopping in and snacking at the locally owned Alma Cheese factory for some local flavor and fun. Alma-st Heaven indeed.
