Accessing the trail system from the west side, we take FR 218 and go east to Moody Swamps/Meadow and then turn right on FR 651 and ride to the “bathroom.” There is a parking area here and, well, a vault bathroom. There is a trail that heads into the trees toward Red Butte (elevation 8,108 feet) and Thousand Springs Trail. The last few miles are on an ungroomed forest service road that can get pretty interesting at times, but fun to ride. Thousand Springs Trail is a more mellow area near Red Butte and doesn’t require hero skills to ride. There are a lot of play areas here as well as some great hillclimbing. And when you’re sitting on top of Red Butte, you get a 360-degree view of the surrounding mountains with no obstructions, as you’re on one of the tallest peaks in the entire area.
