Popular trail for downhill. It has some rowdy sections and even some rooty drops. Shuttlers will often park at the Tibblefork turnoff and shuttle up to Timpanooke or the summit, then ride down to Tibble fork and their cars.

In winter typically only the bottom section is used as part of a loop for Fat bike riding. A local snowshoe club packs down the Mudsprings - Mill Canyon short loop and makes for good winter riding.
