Description

Smith Ravine Trail #297 is nicely shaded as it passes through oak and ponderosa pine forest. The trail rolls up and down as it gradually climbs from an elevation of roughly 6,000 at one end, to nearly 7,000 at the other. About halfway along the route, this trail crosses Smith Ravine Spring. The spring may be flowing during certain times of the year, evidenced by the presence of yellow columbine and other water-loving plants. As the trail ascends into the Bradshaw Mountains, there are occasional views of the Lynx Creek drainage area to the north and east, and Spruce Mountain Lookout to the south. This area is home to coyotes, javelina, skunks, and mountain lions and there may be signs of wildlife along the trail.

From an MTB point of view, this trail is short but has some excellent climbs that will get your heart rate up. This is a great trail to incorporate into a Spruce Mtn (Tr 307) or Homestead Trail (Tr 305) ride.

The upper haft of the climb is harder (steeper, more eroded) than the lower. I was suffering from pulmonary embolism - it kicked my butt. 2.9mi — 0h 57m
