Clover Springs is a tale of two trails, and thus more interesting. One part of the trail is as rough as a corncob enema. The other portion is as silky smooth as your grandmother's buttermilk pie. Turning off Highway 260 onto the west end of the trail brings you almost immediately into some fun little obstacles. Most have several choices of lines. Decisions based on your rig's unique characteristics may leave you scratching your head. They aren't overly difficult, just enough to make it fun and interesting. In a few places, erosion has cut nice washouts, which will test the level of travel in your suspension. Bone-jarring sections of trail consist of nothing more than cannonballs and larger-sized rocks jarring your rig, you, and everything else. There are a few bypasses. Just when you have had enough, the trail becomes as easy as pie. Clover Springs becomes a stroll through a huge Ponderosa Pine studded park. Deer, elk, javelina, turkey, and the occasional cow may cross the road in front of you or be lurking in the brush nearby. Wonderful campsites beckon you to slow down and spend some time around a campfire. So what's it gonna be? Corncob? Pie? Why not both?
