The C Trail is a long downhill trail that winds down the face of Cedar Mountain, which overlooks Cedar City and borders Dixie National Forest. It's locally known for being a challenging mountain biking trail with a bunch of tight switchbacks, but it also serves as a scenic but strenuous hiking trail.

we shuttled the trail and started at the top. you lose a lot of elevation in a short distance. most of the trail is switch backs.
there are some pretty views, but I don't know if it's worth the effort.

I did this trail with a couple of friends a few years back, and it's a workout! Be prepared to bring water and a good pair of shoes; don't attempt the entire trail spontaneously. We had to cut the hike short after a while when we realized how long the trail was, plus we didn't have a car at the bottom so we had to go back up to the overlook. Lots of beautiful views though! Definitely want to give the whole trail a shot the next time I visit Utah.
