Trail Description
About this trail
Head up the very rough and continuously steep jeep road, FSR 611. If you see the exit of the Argentine Trail on the way up, ignore it; this is where you'll come back out. After about 2 1/2 miles on FSR 611, look for a jeep road doubling back to the left. Take it up to a full switchback to the right and further up to a switchback left and finally, at the next right turn, you will see the singletrack heading west. The trail meanders on rolling terrain for a while before making a brutal climb to the top of Argentine Peak. Then its a white knuckle descent back to FSR 611 and then back to the car. For a great 15 mile route starting in town, simply follow the Ice Rink to Blue River route and, after reaching the dirt road, follow it south until a left on Royal, left on Regal and left on Coronet. Where the Blue River Trail meets the dirt road, there is a doubletrack that connects up with Coronet, but it is a vicious climb and best saved for a downhill on the return.

Review: This is more of a character builder than a fun ride. The slog up the jeep road is relentless. The Argentine trail itself is open to motos, so much of the climb is a rocky, sandy, exceptionally steep rut. Fortunately, the descent down the west side is less rutted and has some flow, but it's anything but groomed for mountain biking. I wouldn't recommend doing this for the Argentine trail alone, but you can get a great ride with a little of everything by doing this as an add on to the Ice Rink/Blue River Trail. If you do, bring some snacks--even though its only 15 miles, you'll burn some calories.
