The Cold Springs trail offers a sunny traverse across the backside of Bald Mountain highlighted by a constant, rolling grade with some rocky sections. Following the traverse, the trail diverts into a fast, smooth wooded section down to the Cold Springs lift. Connect to Warm Springs Trail for a combined 22 mile cross-country loop (best ridden clockwise), coming back along the Wood River Trail "Bike Path." This ride is a also great as an up and back or lift-accessed downhill only ride. Be advised of occasional uphill traffic on this trail. This trail is not patrolled or swept-use at your own risk.
