Need to Know

Open Access Days are free, but you have to sign up early to get the access. If you get there early and ride right up to this trail, you should have a clear ride all the way down.

Description

Dripping Springs Trail runs from East Loma Ridge Jeep Trail to Limestone Canyon Road. The trail is a singletrack that is mostly smooth with a few ruts after the start near the East Loma entrance. From there, the trail is primarily smooth the rest of the way, with just a few dips through drainage areas after you drop down into the meadow.

There are hikers on the trail during the Open Access Days, so watch your speed through the blind corners. The trail ends up in a nice meadow with lots of oak trees. It can be ridden in either direction, and East Loma to Limestone is the downhill way. Ride up East Loma from the Augustine Staging Area, then take Dripping Springs down to Limestone, and make a right to the sinks.
