A classic all-mountain experience! The Warm Springs Trail offers a roller coaster ride through the wooded backside of Bald Mountain. A half mile climb to Little America Point is a welcome rest before the trail heads downhill through the trees burned in the 2007 Castle Rock Fire. Back inside the ski area, a fast, shaded descent drops down to Warm Springs Plaza, returning to River Run Plaza along the bike path. Be advised of the occasional hiker or uphill rider as you near the bottom of the trail, particularly in the late afternoon.

Access Info

Access the Warm Springs trail from the Broadway trail if you are using the lifts. Many locals access the Warm Springs trail by climbing up Cold Springs for an in-town mini-epic. The Warm Springs trail is closed above the Traverse trail until July 1st each year due to elk calving.
