There are 4 distinct mountain biking trails at Spicer Ranch. These trails are meant for mountain bikes!! The terrain is rough. It is not recommended to try these trails on beach cruisers or other non-mountain bikes
Spicer Ranch Trail – 2.5 Miles. This is a rolling trail of moderate difficulty that travels past ponds and active quarries. You will travel to the eastern most reaches of the Ranch before looping back around South Pond and returning to the trail head. You can reach the Southpond Mountain Trail from this route.
STORM Trail – .75 Miles. This easy route travels along a lush green meadow with a natural seep where you may hear toads and see other wild life. It is quite a treat to see green grass and water in a desert environment. You can access the Spicer Ranch Trail and Dynamite Trail for this route.
Southpond Mountain Trail – 1 Mile. This intermediate trail is a mellow climb up to the top of Southpond Mountain. From here you will be able to view the entire Ranch and Valley below. Once on top you can take a small loop and head back down the way you came.Please give downhill riders the right -of way so they don’t no go over the handle bars and into the rocks trying to get out of your way.
Dynamite Trail. 2 Miles. Named for the exploratory mining long ago, this trail is all its name suggests. It will hand you 1650 Ft of climbing over just 2 miles. To ride or hike this trail will take good physical and technical skills. It will be Dy-No-Mite!
