Trail 373 and 396 off White Spar Road

Trail 373 starts across from the water fall at Prescott Pines Mobile Park. The sign says 373 and it heads into the back of the White Spar Campground. Your ride though the campground to the bottom of School House Gulch and the trail will begin on your left about 50-feet up School House Gulch Road.

Trail 396 is moderate, smooth, well-maintained and perfect for the casual rider. You can ride this trail all the way up to Goldwater Lake and then from there ride around the lake and continue on to the dam service trail or the Feldmeier Trail. Either of these choices will take you down to the bottom of the dam road almost to the bottom. Trail 373 is on the left before you reach the gate and is the wonderful ride back over to the White Spar Campground. From there you go whatever direction you want.

Trail 392

392 starts at Thumb Butte Road about a half-mile past the park and on the left side of the road. It meets up with the creek side trail right at the trail head. From there it goes up onto the top of a small hill where it meets up with the Old Road 51 and from there you can access Butte Creek and the higher trails alongside of Thumb Butte. It’s a wonderful quick way to get into that area. It’s a moderate climb with a couple of hard spots and by the time you wish it was over, it is.

Trail 392 saves you having to ride all the way up Thumb Butte Road to the juniper tree.
