The Big Spring Hollow Loop is a short but sweet singletrack in the South Fork of Provo Canyon. At a fairly low altitude for an alpine trail (5700 feet), this trail opens in late spring for early-season riding. The loop ride is 3.5 miles of intermediate technical singletrack, with an altitude gain of 750 feet. The trail begins in maple, aspen, choke cherry, and elderberry. A few Douglas fir appear near the top. Much of the trail is buffed smooth, and is a delight to ride. The rate of climb is very tolerable, but less-strong intermediate riders may need to take a breather or two on the way up. There's no tricky stuff. You'll cross the creek several times on wooden bridges. Wildflowers include penstemmon, oregon grape, clematis, and balsamroot. At the peak of the loop, you might want to roll another 0.2 miles up the trail to see Big Springs. The spring area is covered with wooden planking. (The spring is dry during summer in drought years.)
