Trail Overview
Spring Creek
This is an extremely difficult trail full of challenges not for the faint of heart. It actually becomes more difficult year after year because it sees so much traffic. If you're up for the challenge, you'll be rewarded with some great views and some amazing obstacles.
Getting There
Get off Interstate 70 at Downieville exit 234 west of Idaho Springs. Go west on the access road. It starts on the north side and passes under the freeway. At 1.1 miles from the exit, turn left on Alvarado Road. Cross the bridge and immediately pull over to the left.
