Hot Springs to Mad Creek to Red Dirt Trail Loop

Hot Springs to Mad Creek to Red Dirt Trail Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Mountain bike riders in Steamboat Springs are tough. When one trail isn’t long enough to fill up a day, local riders combine two or more trails. The Hot Springs– Mad Creek–Red Dirt Trail Loop is more than just a ride—it’s three rides combined.

A favorite among area locals, this loop spotlights Strawberry Park Hot Springs, the steep-walled canyon of Mad Creek, and the quiet solitude of the Red Dirt Trail. Each of these rides can be ridden separately or fashioned into shorter loops."
