This segment of trail is singletrack. The topo maps show the trail as continuing down Warm Springs Creek on the trails east end. That section of trail hasn't been maintained in years and is very hard to find if it even exists anymore. However the section of the Watson Peak Trail shown on this map was maintained by individuals in 2016 and is decently rideable until more downfall happens. The trailhead is unsigned. The trail is primarily used by hunters or stockmen.

Access Info

Copper Creek jeep road. Its an epic just to get to the start of this trail.
