Mountain Biking 12 Mile To Lime Creek

****   Add a review
#111 of 317 mountain bike trails in Idaho
#6,613 in the world

This ride is all single track once you get past the end of the gate up 12 Mile creek. There are a couple of variations so bring a map and a GPS w/ this track loaded. Lime Creek is a 3000' straight shot back down to the Salmon River.

Stop by nearby Goldbug Hotsprings for a post ride soak.

    A good climb followed by a great descent followed by another good climb and another greater descent. This trail is suitable for strong intermediate or advanced riders. The trail down through the sagebrush meadow after the first climb is not easily defined. Best to bring a gps track with you on this ride.
