Trail shared by Jeff Combs

A good climb to give access to the Thumb Butte area.

Description

The Willy Nilly Tractor Trail connects Noodle Trail to Trail 317 - Ridge Top Trail linking the Spence Basin area to the Thumb Butte area.

From the start, there is a short climb near a neighborhood, then a fun downhill with a few switchbacks. Once you hit the rocky creek crossing, get ready to climb. There are a couple very steep, short climbs, and then it mellows out a bit.

Technically, the trail is easy as it is wide and well groomed. There is one rocky section through the creek where you'll want to watch your footing.
