Description

This trail begins off Sweet Sweet Connie and climbs and descends over to Hidden Springs. You'll begin with a traversing climb on easy terrain before entering some extensive rock gardens. Keep an eye out as you pick your way through the rocks, eventually you'll come upon a pond! Stop and take in the amazing little pond in the foothills.

You'll then climb a little more before cresting onto the ridge. The trail becomes doubletrack for a short ways before turning into a fun twisty and flowy singletrack trail that bounces up and down on the contour line.

This trail can be ridden in either direction and is an excellent option for finishing up Sweet Sweet Connie.

A near perfect trail that descends from Bogus Basin. For the last 2 miles you can ride without brakes if you have the guts and are lucky enough to have the trail to yourself.

Beware the spiders around the southeast side of the lower pond! Eat lunch on the grass on the west side instead.
