This is an easy to moderate loop with less about 700 feet of climbing. Great casual training workout. Mostly exposed and not shaded so keep that in mind on hot days

The lower stuff isn't too bad but up higher there is still snow and when it melts it makes mud. The higher trails should be ridden in the morning before things thaw.

The south end of Lower Riverview has been bulldozed but there is now a re-route that will take you straight up to Hobbiton Hill. If you are trying to get back to the UVU parking lot take Hobbiton Hill all the way down to Lower Riverview.
