Trail Overview

Spaas Creek is a wonderful 6-mile creek ride East of Winchester. It is located inside the Daniel Boone National Forest and is a short distance from many other rides in the area. The Northern trailhead is the most difficult part of the trail. There are several water crossings and boulder obstacles on the trail, and it is part of the Daniel Boone Back Country Byway (DBBB) and is marked as such. It is possible to come across vehicles traveling in both directions, but there is normally plenty of room to get past. Slade is the closest town to the southern part of the trail and Means to the north.

Difficulty

The majority of the trail is an easy ride. There are a few sections where it gets a little technical, but nothing careful people shouldn't be able to navigate.

Great trail. Ran it from south to north. As others have said there is a tree down across the creek, but even vehicles with a rooftop tent should be able to drive under it. The rutted out sections all seem to have easier bypasses except for the two in the pictures I posted. For reference I’m on 35s.

Very deep water crossings due to the rain, rutted, and lots of mud

Nice trail, took about 45 mins to finish. No major obstacles, good beginner trail.
