This loop is all singletrack. Start on Warm Springs Trail #103. The trail climbs
gradually on good singletrack with some rocky sections. Watch for wild
raspberries where the trail crosses scree fields.
After a mile is the first junction. Go right and cross the creek.
The next junction is well marked, go left on Porcupine Creek Trail #205 to
Twogood Cabin. Here the rocky sections end and the trail is good singletrack
with gravelly sections.
Not too far beyond Twogood Cabin starts the serious climbing, gaining close to
2000' in about 2 miles. There are many switchbacks and most are ridable is
you can keep your balance and power.

trail stays near the top of the ridge rolling up and down for the next 3 miles
where you come to an old hunting camp.
Here the trail seems to deadend. Turn around and you will notice a faint trail
taking off to the left and back toward the ridge. The descending starts soon

trail bottoms out and climbs briefly. Look for a sign for the Fire Creek Trail
#404 on a tree on the left.
Fire Creek Trail is never too steep but has many switchbacks. This is a super
