This spur is extreme HAB and not rideable! It's a hell of hike but not with a bike. Was lucky to make it up without injury to me or my rig. I used it as an ascent and Wild Burro (Ritz) as a descent with less extreme HAB. Unfortunately, was looking for a "shorter" west side entry of TMP to an awesome Ridge Loop singletrack. The Willow Spring main trail is marked off limits to bikes via Marana P&R official (got really bad advice from him...enter from the eastside if you hate HAB!). Nothing is really rideable out of Wild Burro TH except for a sandy wash for a tiresome slog!

 Caveat emptor!!! Trail description stands. Plus round trip was approximately 14 miles from Wild Burro (at the Ritz hotel). Route was WB--Ritz to Alamo Spring Spur to Ridgeline (advanced) to WB--upper (intermediate) to WB--Ritz. The west side access is mainly extreme HAB!

 Error in description. Substitute "Willow" Spring for Alamo Spring for correct trail name.
