Has anyone ridden the new horse/ XC trails on the other side (back side ) of Spring Mountain ? Look a bit remote . Worthwhile? Best way to access?
I tried today, but the trails were closed for maintenance. I then tried to ride the southern firetrails to Spring Mountain. I made it to the first peak, nice views but was sick of pushing my bike. The (assumingly former) fireroads took the concept of "rock garden" to another level! The area was quite scenic, and peaceful if that's your thing.
yep, best place to access is by parking at the gate on Thornbill drive and heading up past the water tank. Climb up the firetrail a bit and there is a sneaky singletrack off a firetrail to the right. Check strava - named hidden singletrack. It goes up and across the newish multi use trail. the new trails are not bad but not tech at all.
