Summary:
One of the most scenic and beautiful trails I have ever ridden. Always in great condition and good cardio to the top. Never bothered by other users and have shared the trail with deer, dogs and hikers. Enjoy most in late afternoon in summer.

Recommended Route:
Parking at base near school.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lupine to Larry's to Blair Witch.

Summary:
It's a great little up and down ride. Not technical at all with the exception of the "wall" a steep up near the top with roots and rocks. I would recommend this trail to anybody who wants a quick easy ride.

As for foot traffic. Yes this trail does get very busy. The busiest part is between the ponds and where the two track turns to single. The best times to ride are during the week and either in the morning or evening. Some shuttle up to buff pass and ride down, so that's an option. Overall it's a decent trail to ride

Summary:
Spring creek is very pretty but as other reviewers said there is a lot of foot traffic on it. The best time to go is early in the season or real early in the morning. As the brush grows in the summer it gets real high so you must go slow down the trail because there are runners and hiker around the blind curve.
I would recommend this for a person just getting into Mountain Bike riding. Not very hard and very scenic. Once you are comfortable with this trail time to move on.

Recommended Route:
There is only one way up and one way down.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Mad Creek, Mount Warner Trail System by Stemboat Resorts, and Howelson Hill (Emerald Mountain)

Summary:
I am new to the area and this is the first trail I rode in Steamboat. It was recommended by the fine folks at Sore Saddle Cyclery. It is very good trail if you want a quick workout. Not very technical at all and there are only two climbs that will really get your heart going and they are very short. It has a lot of foot traffic and inexpierenced riders so beware. Hey it's in Steamboat so its all good!

Recommended Route:
Leave from the High School

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Get a copy of the Steamboat Trail guide there are lots of great rides in the area.

Summary:
This ride ould be fun if the trail were a lot more narrow and had about 95% fewer users. Good place for beginner, but not really anybody else.
