So I thought I'd ride up in the Torts the other day.....Looked at Trailforks...Figured I'd go up Wild burro and then come back down Alamo Spring. So after riding up that crappy wash and carrying my bike for another few hours and then finding out Alamo is no bikes......Can someone recommend me a way to gain the elevation up to Ridgeline without carrying my bike for extended sections....I don't mind HAB, but I'd rather ride.

Thx!

go at it from the honeybee/rail x side. getting to it may take a while but you will certainly be on your bike more.

Take Wild Burro through the wash and hike a bike up Alamo Spur (tough, but not that long). Take Ridgeline counter clockwise to Wild Burro connector. Cross Wild Burro up Wild Mustang to Upper Javalina where you end up at the golf course. Take road back to trailhead.

What Intense said, I do it all the time. Wild Burro can indeed be crappy if the sand is not packed, but you can usually ride it all if you pick your line. Make sure you go all the way to the top of WB wash, do not take the left turn up Wild Burro Trail past the ruined line shack, but continue and make sure it is Alamo Spur you go up which will be to the right when there is no way to go straight any more. The Spur is steep and rocky, but rideable in places. I enjoy seeing how much of it I can actually ride, but there is a lot of HAB involved. It is worth it tho. When the Spur turns into the Alamo Spring trail at the top, go left and down. It is all rideable from there to Ridgeline and beyond...
