A zig-zagging descent with sharp corners.

Description

Most of the trails at Moran State Park are closed to mountain bikers during the year except from September 15 to May 15. Trails are multi-use and open to travel in both directions.

The summit of Mt. Constitution is 19 miles away from the ferry landing, so shuttling is the preferred method for biking in the park. A Discover Pass is required for every vehicle that enters the park is equipped with an automated pay station.
This trail is open to mountain bikers from September 15 to May 15 each year.

On a clear day, access this trail by taking the Little Summit Trail from the observation tower to enjoy the views. On a cloudy or rainy day, start at the Cold Springs parking area.

From the road crossing, the trail travels a little over half a mile to the intersection with the North Trail. You'll quickly pass a picnic area followed by a pond. Once at the intersection keep left and the descent begins almost immediately. The Cold Springs Trail mostly consists of sections of straightaway that roll into indistinct sharp corners. This is a good trail to practice your turning skills. There are also small rough or technical portions and much of the trail is narrow or exposed.

Near the bottom you'll see the West Boundary Trail coming in from the right (and it's possible to divert onto the West Boundary Segment). Soon you'll end up at the Cascade Lake parking area.

There are supposed to be two mine shafts just off the trail, but I wasn't able to spot them while riding.
