A tough climb or awesome descent. Great to link in as a loop with other trails.

The description below describes that the River Run Trail provides access to the Bald Mountain Trail. Please note that the Bald Mountain Trail is a popular hiking route and that it is only open to uphill bike traffic.

Need to Know

Starting 2018: July - Sept the River Run Trail will be a downhill biking only during lift operation hours. Outside lift operation hours River Run Trail can be hiked or ridden as a climb.

Description

This trail provides access to both the Bald Mountain Trail and Warm Springs Trail allowing for short loops on Bald Mountain. Unlike the rest of the valley, this trail's soil is quite tacky in places.

Starting from Traverse Trail, River Run Trail is a great descent. Tight singletrack winding through the woods is this trail's bread and butter. More traditional singletrack than freeride, this trail lis low on pure feature technicality, but gains its difficulty from the incredibly compact turns and speed impeding small features. These shady "switchberms" (constructed summer of 2017) offer the smoothest and easiest descent to River Run Plaza.

When ridden as a climb, start your ride at Baldy's base area. The trail begins with 15 or so switchbacks through the steep forest just above River Run Lodge. After about 3 miles the singletrack trail connects with the Traverse Trail.
