The Pinecrest climb is fairly mellow, with the exception of one steep pitch up the head of a gulch. The climb takes you from Pinecrest Road to Warm Springs Creek Road. To access the downhill trail, turn right on Warm Springs Creek Road.

Access Info

To start the climb, exit I-15 at the Montana City exit and follow MT-282 under the interstate until you reach parking along the frontage road just before Pinecrest Road. Begin riding up Pinecrest Road. The trail begins just past the dark brown house and garage, on the other side of the fence. The downhill begins off Warm Springs Creek Road.

Access on private Haab Ranch property is seasonally restricted in the spring; please respect any posted closures.
