Warm Springs Ridge Trail can be ridden in either direction and provides outstanding singletrack with amazing views.

From Porcupine Saddle, this trail is a great shuttle ride with long downhills. From Medicine Springs Road, expect long tough climbing. Either way the singletrack is great.

Most of the length of this trail is smooth singletrack - there are some rocky sections along the ridge.

The central portion of the trail frequently has deadfall. Local MTB Clubs try to keep it clear but be ready to stop.

The northern portion of the trail has rubber water bars - while not technically challenging to ride, they take some getting used to at first.
