Only Wheeler Creek Trail plus East Fork Mtn Bike as warm up to XTerra. Lower part is a gravel, rocky road, nothing special and super crowded. Meadow up top is nice with good views. Did as a training ride for XTerra, good workout. Fun descent. Wouldn't do this for any other reason than I did. Other much more pretty less crowded places to go.

Started on Wheeler, went all the way up to SnowBasin, came down Maple trail. This is the most fun downhill that I have ever had on my bike!

The reason that i gave 3 out of 5 stars is because it is so EXTREMELY HEAVILY trafficked. I mean seriously. I could hardly go 100 feet without crossing/passing another traveler. Every corner you come to, expect to run into someone. Definitely not a trail to have headphones in on.

overall great. But geez. More crowded that a walmart on black friday.

By far one of my favorite hikes!! It's shaded and by a stream so it stays pretty cool, even when temps are nearly 100!
