Description

This upper section of the Spring Creek Trail is all doubletrack and mostly used by ATVs and motos. However, it is a very pretty ride and worth using to connect to other trails if you haven't ridden it.

Start off of Divide Rd. About 50 yards in there is a fork and you should head left. You'll see a sign for the trial about 1/4 miles in. Follow the steep loose doubletrack down until it turns into more fun terrain.

You'll pass the turnoff for the Paradox Trail about half way through. There is more climbing than you would expect. Eventually you'll pass the Dented Door Trail coming in from the south. Another mile or so passed Dented Door takes you to the start of Lower Spring Creek. Here you can continue down the singetrack or hike your bike back up to the canyon rim and ride out to Dave Wood Rd.
