Spring Cove Trail intersects with Goat Mountain Trail at the only junction and can be descended as an alternative to the "Ninja" section of Goat. If you descend this way, you can pedal back along the road if you've parked at The Forks. Otherwise, it's a tough climb back up with a couple of technical sections. However, you'll be rewarded in kind by the flowy lower "Ninja" section of Goat.

If you are descending Spring Cove Trail, be aware as there are a handful of spots on the lower half where the trail crosses a fire road. The trail always starts back on your left side, so pay close attention to the tracks of those who have come before you.

Spring Cove is a great trail that can be used as part of a bigger ride in conjunction with Goat Mountain Trail and 007 by taking the road past Miller's Landing and crossing the dam.
