Description
Consistently steep, Fire Creek Trail is a good downhill and a tough uphill. Up or down, this trail allows loops between Warm Springs Ridge and Warm Springs Creek Trails.

The lower section of trail gives good tight switchback practice (remember; no skidding).

The upper, open sections can have thick vegetation covering obstacles. Stay sharp.
