A roller coaster ride through the wooded backside of Bald Mountain, including a half mile climb to Little America Point, this trail ends during a fast, shaded descent down to Warm Springs Plaza. Please be advised that there is a small detour at the base of Warm Springs for the season. Return to River Run Plaza along the Wood River Trail "bike path." For a combined 22 mile cross-country loop (best ridden clockwise), connect from Cold Springs Trail, starting near St. Luke's hospital. Or lastly, take the lifts to the top of Bald Mountain for a scenic downhill-only ride. Be advised of the occasional hiker or uphill rider as you near the bottom of the trail, particularly in the late afternoon. This trail is not patrolled or swept-use at your own risk.
