Alpine singletrack goodness through the Spring Mountains. There are a few somewhat sketchy limestone outcroppings and a few roots to watch out for, otherwise the trail is smooth flowing singletrack. Prefered direction is counter-clockwise from the Lower Bristlecone Trail. You could also skip the fire road and ride out & back just on this trail.

Stay on the alert for hikers as this is a very popular hiking trail as well!
