For mountain biking this is the greatest trail in Utah County. Absolutely gorgeous terrain, easy wide trail, mostly downhill. Just amazing.

this is a fun trail. I started at the south end of the trail. I if your on bike going the way i did, its super loose dirt and hard to get traction. but after that its mostly downhill. There are some creek crossings, jumps, and lots of blind turns.

Well maintained trail climbs through trees and meadows with views of Loafer, Santiquin, Nebo peaks. Saw a large herd of Elk on the trail early in the morning on the hike. If you have someone drop you off at the southeast end of the trail you can make this a mostly downhill hike and be picked up at the southwest end of the trail. There is a 100ft climb at the southeast Trailhead. The trail starts in an area where campers stay and is at the northwest end of this area. I didn't get out to the road to see if there is a sign indicating the trailhead on this end.
