Trail shared by J R

The sustained climb is rewarded by a fun, flowing singletrack back to the car.

E-Bikes Not Allowed

Features -none-

Land is BLM so e-bikes are not allowed.

Overview

This is great for exercise. The views are vast—especially on the Stucki Springs Trail. The singletrack down the Stucki Connector and the Bearclaw Poppy Trail is fast and furious. The Bearclaw Poppy Trail portion (both up and down) can be very busy on weekends during the spring and fall. Midweek is better.

These trails are unrideable after rain so please don't ruin the trails by riding when it's wet—you might end up having to walk miles through very sticky mud if you get stuck. Please don't ruin the trails by riding wet (did I make my point?)!

Description

The ride starts at the end of Navajo Drive and is well marked. Bearclaw Poppy Trail is one-way up and one-way down. If you follow the loop as shown you'll be riding the trails in the correct direction.

The up trail is well marked. Bearclaw Poppy Trail turns into the Stucki Springs Trail at about 2.2 miles. At about 6.0 miles (near the high point of the loop) the Stucki Springs Trail trail takes a sharp turn to the right (NE) and continues partially on a two-track for about 2.0 miles, (look for signage for a turn to the right marked more difficult) then heads southeast on the Stucki Connector and back to Bearclaw Poppy Trail and the parking lot.

Have blast!

History & Background

Bearclaw Poppies are an endangered species so take care to stay on the trail or go to jail.
