4W696 Mud Springs Trail?
 
I am look for info on 4W696 Mud Springs Trail above the Nile Valley.

How hard is the 4W696 trail?
How tight is the 4W696 trail?
How is it running 4W696 in late June?

Does anyone have pictures of the trail they can post to share?

See the Cloversprings thread. The trail connects Mudsprings to Cloversprings. And vice versa.

We would like to start off of FS1601 and go up for there. Any thing we should know?

1601 will take you to the low start spot. 1613 midway, 1611 middle. 1601 to the start of the trail only instead take a left (trail starts on hairpin turn to right). There is about a 1/2 mile or so of trail below what most believe is the start. In the days of old the trail started from the Nile Road but is now private property (closed). You can horse , hike or bike it though. It's posted no motorized.

We are thinking of starting at 1601 and taking one of those back out.

Thanks for the info. :thumbup:

Follow the trail to Clover springs. Backtrack to the Glass creek trail (less that 1/2 mile). Take Glass creek down you will come out on the 1605 road which connects with the 1600 which takes you out. If you take the 1601 in the 1600 joins it at a Y at the bottom. Big loop.

Sounds like a plan. We will give it a try. Thanks.

I usually run this trail at least once if I'm over in Sep for early Elk season; My hunting ride is an 89 XJ Laredo w/ 3" lift and 31" BFG Muds, open/open stock 3:54 gears...I enjoy the trail/some awesome views up near the top...:thumbup:
