Yes, the Alpine Way parking is fine, as long as you follow the signage. Unless you have a mountain bike, however, it seems the 3.5km stretch of old forest road is less than esthetic. You'll like the new trail, I think, xj6response, that descends from Fault Pass just west of Screaming Cat Lake. It completely avoids the Flank Trail North which is particularly hard on the feet after doing the full circuit. Should be cleared for public use in less than two weeks.
RMOW has really supported our initial presentations of five years ago and stepped up to the plate on hiking/biking trail development in the mountains every year since...glad you are enjoying their development and the hundreds of volunteer days put into building so many of the hiking trails...
Fun is where you make it...
