OverviewWhite Ranch is an expansive, spider network of trails with some good technical sections and lots of lung busting climbing. Two parking lots allow for very different rides. You can easily spend a day at White Ranch linking up all the various trails.
Trail DescriptionWhite Ranch has at least 10 distinct, name trails to ride ranging from .3 miles to over 4.5 miles. Trails are a wide mix of rocky, technical singletrack terrain to fast, flowing double track.
Climbing is abundant, especially when starting at the lower parking lot just off Highway 93. The climb from the lower parking lot to the top is over 1700 feet of elevation gain, but of course the ride down will make it all worthwhile.
Check the Jefferson County website for descriptions of the various trails:
