This is a nice moderate trail ride that covers some of the best social and system trails in the Thumb Butte and The Pines area. This ride should take 3-4 hours when ridden at a moderate pace and a few stops along the way. There are no water stops along this route but you should be fine with 3 liters of water unless you are riding it in the very hot summer months. The route utilizes a small portion of Thumb Butte road to connect a couple of social trails. The route would best be ridden in a counter clockwise fashion and could easily be started from any of the 3 parking areas the route goes through like Thumb Butte Park, White Rock, or 332 trail head on Iron Springs road.

Overgrown vegetation has been all removed and tread maintenance done. Other than being dry from lack of rain, the trail is in excellent shape.
