Review of Spiral Drive

Spiral Drive
Reviewed May 30, 2016

Due to an event, we could not make it to the top. The local Kiwanis club was dropping rubber balls for a charitable event. The local kids were collecting the balls that had various amounts of cash prises associated with some of the rubber balls.

I love driving up and down the dirt road leading up to spiral drive, but I don't usually go to the top unless I want to burn lots of gas! Its steep and a great thrill!

A trip to Salida is not complete without a trip up to Mount Tenderfoot . You can hike up or ride your mountain bike right from town . Or drive up on the dirt road . The view is well worth the trip .

Driving up the road is so faux pas to the locals. I recommend walking, as I did, up to the summit. Follow F street North, across the Arkansas river bridge, and park near the caboose. Cross the tracks and head north, you'll find yourself on a trail with switchbacks that bring you to the top. Halfway you may find a bench to sit on. Walk all the way to the top and up the stairs and enjoy the view. You shan't be disappointed.

Even better, consider biking! There is extensive bike trails that branch off just below the summit. Excellent if your bike is of the ruggedized mountainous variety. Just don't drive. It's lame!
