“A steep and rocky descent that drops from the plateau to travel along the Rio Grande.”
— Georges Mally
The Soda Springs Trail is a challenging, rocky descent and is definitely for advanced riders. The trail opens with a long straightaway before transitioning to tight switchbacks. The trail offers some great views, just make sure to keep at least one eye on the trail. As it closes toward the river, the trail turns north for a casual road-trace pedal around the plateau. The end of the trail travels for a short ways down a wash to reach Old Buckman Road.
