One of the great Park City Mountain Resort trails. It can be accessed by lift service from PayDay or by riding up King Road or Sweeney's singletrack. This trail is primarily used for mountain biking and is rated advanced as such. As a hiking trail, this is fairly easy. Primarily used as a mountain biking trail. From the top of the Town Lift, head uphill for just a tiny bit, then begin a twisty, tight, non-stop descent that feels like you're in deep forest the whole time. The trail is all singletrack, with roots, narrow tree openings, and tight turns, but it's not really very difficult. With all these challenges, and so many switchbacks across the fall line, you go quite slow - you never really get any speed and the trail's 1.7 miles takes a long time

I liked this trail although we ran into a number mountain bikers. Beautiful aspen forest.

Completed in mid June 2018. I really enjoyed walking through the mountain forrest. the combination of thick trees and thick vegetation was very cool. the beginning seems to be the most difficult part out of Park City, but once you hit the switch backs and the thick trees it is not too bad. took me and my two boys about 1hr 45 minutes at a slow but study pace. I really enjoyed this trail. did not see anyone else on this trail, but could see evidence of past mountain bike use. would be hard to pass a biker on switch back trail is very narrow. we rode the ski lift back down. made the climb worth the it. ski lift is free coming down. $24 per person to go up.

There are thousands of amazing Mtn biking... but, this is the absolute WORST trail in Park City. This is terrible course, really bad roots, sharp rocks and bad route finding. This is more like 'Trial' riding, not trail riding. I'm a pro and I can ride it down but it's not fun at all. Go ANYWHERE else!!

I took the Town Lift up to the top of trailhead to hike down and then back up again. The trail weaves through dense patches of beautiful aspen trees at a very subtle incline on the way up, no steep moments at all. Great for a super chill walking sort of hike, enough shade to go in the middle of the day. Keep an eye out for passing mountain bikers!

Very fun downhill ride. Lots of tight turns and lots of roots that make this trail quite technical but not too difficult. A tiny bit of uphill to begin with and then the rest of the time is spent winding through thick aspens. It's a ton of fun and was the highlight of my day mountain biking at Park City.
