Length: 15.6 mi • Est. 7 h 28 m
We started off from the Red Canyon Campground along SB12, and rode the paved bike trail to Coyote Hollow and then started the loop at the Coyote Hollow TH. The initial ascent is slow going and quite a good warm up before hitting the main trail. The first part of the trail is an up/down ride with some good climbs, but very doable in the right gears. At the midpoint, the ride becomes a little more level with some great views and a few steep climbs. As you descend the mountain, you encounter some tight switchbacks, and then a really nice bomb downhill (no pedaling needed) for over a mile, that dumps you right back into the Red Canyon campground. Fantastic ride.Show more
