Stein Mountain Shuttle

Stein Mountain Trail has been reclaimed by a YEP crew in summer of 2010. The trail can be accessed via 4th of July Creek Road.

Bring extra brake pads, this descent is 5000' vertical.

There are several choices to this shuttle from the Stein Mountain Trail. Going straight out Big Silverlead gives all downhill. You can ride the gentle climb out of Silverlead and into Burns Gulch. You can add another climb to drop into Thompson and Wagonhammer. Or you can drop into the north trails and come out Trail Gulch or Bills Canyon or Carl Gulch. Bring a map and a GPS until these trails get signs.

No matter how you decide to ride off the top of Stein Mtn... This is a huge descent

Three Mile Ridge

Three Mile Ridge is a great descent off of the Continental Divide Trail.  Starting as singletrack at the divide, the trail becomes a 4wheeler track and drops to Dahlonega Creek above Gibbonsville.

The CDT is in great shape from Chief Joseph Pass to Three Mile Ridge too.

This is another ride for the bucket list!  With rides like this so close to Salmon, Moab and Fruita seem further and further away.

Warm Springs Ridge

We drove north for this great shuttle. Max's dad volunteered to drop us off at the trailhead saving a bunch of drive time.

This is an amazing ride. All great single track. The first 8 miles is some climbing and rolling XC riding. Then the downhill starts, 4 miles seem like they will never end!!

The ride takes 3-4 hours and the shuttle another 1.5 hours to set up.  Bring a trail saw, there is a lot of deadfall from the 2000 fires.

Add this ride to your bucket list and call us when you are ready to check it off!  We would love to ride this one again and again.

A 2011 Note... A crew of Hamilton, MT MTB Gnomes cleared the deadfall from the trail.  There will be more tree falling on this great trail, for now however it is basically clear.  A crew from Salmon and Anchorage rode this in Sept. 2011 and we encountered 2 downed trees.  Thanks Hamiltonian MTB Gnomes!!  Next time call us and we will help.

Henry Creek Loop

Henry Creek Loop is a short and challenging ride. This ride is only about 4 miles and includes 1000' of climbing w/ a swift steep rather exposed descent.

Park about 1 mile down the Williams Lake Road at a gravel area on the right. Then ride south on the Wms Lake Road to the Henry Creek Trailhead, not quite a mile. The trail climbs up Henry Creek steadily for about another mile before the drainage splits. Stay to the right. From here the trail begins to climb more steeply up to a saddle. Once at the saddle, get on a cow trail that contours to the right in to the drainage. There are several parallel contouring cow trails, stay on the lowest wide trail. This will descend right to parking area. The descent is steep and loose in spots, keep your speed in check.

Be sure reclose any Fence Gates you open to go through.

A couple of Wagonhammer Loops

Here are a couple of fun Wagonhammer loops.  The wildflowers are going crazy after such a wet spring.  It is difficult to focus on the trail!

Web of Singletrack

The web of trails in the Discovery Hill area.  Green in the Screencapture below is single track.  Close to 50 miles of it.  So close to town.  Nothing is named really.  We just ride there.  What to do with it all?

Canis Lupis

A Wolf track encountered late in a big Wagonhammer ride. 

With so many Elk in the area I am surprised we have not seen something like this sooner.  All of the more remote drainages have several kill sites in them from this past winter as well.
