Rail Spike Loop is a beginner-friendly loop in the Three Springs Spur Line trail system. The sustainable design of these trails is intended for introductory mountain bikers of all ages. Durango Trails will continue trailwork in Three Springs, including the addition of a Northern trail that will connect to Cowboy, Sidewinder and Horse Gulch.
