After getting past the initial, very steep doubletrack climb, you’ll be rewarded with a perfect, swooping climbing grade.

This trail can be ridden as an out and back; as part of a loop including Grove Creek/Big Hole Crest (left at junction)/Drake Creek returning on W 9000 S/S 4500 W/Grove Creek Rd; as part of a larger loop or partially shuttled ride starting near W 9000 S and Hwy 31 and pedaling or driving up Hwy 31 past the summit of Pine Creek Pass to the Spooky trailhead and continuing up Spooky/Corral Creek (right at junction)/Big Hole Crest (right at junction)/Grove Creek and returning to the car via S 4500 W to W9000 S and Hwy 31.

Access Info
