Connects Mid Mountain to bottom of Silver Star restaurant, rest rooms. Good exit point to end ride from Silver Lake Lodge via Mid Mountain trail.

I have no clue how it has four stars. It just really isn't that good.

Absolutely beautiful. Beyond that very rough top to bottom.

These reviews must be based on age of the reviewer...I’m 74 and it’s a HARD slog for me!

This is an awesome trail with stunning views. Uphill but mellow grade and nothing technical.

You can technically go up it, but just don’t. Nobody does except lost people on rental bikes. Armstrong is uphill only and goes to the same area.

This is a good challenging uphill without being overly brutal. Great way to access many other trails and it is nice that its shaded most of the way.

As straight up climbs go, this one is as nice as you’ll find. The grade isn’t bad and mostly shade, but if you’re coming from sea level, you’re probably going to sucking air all the way up. Stay hydrated too.

Wouldn’t call a slog, it’s pretty gradual and smooth. Easy climbing.

I know this trail is very popular, but I did it a couple of days ago and it was not very fun. It was a serious washboard. Even the berms. Kind of disappointed. Hopefully it gets some TLC.

It is an uphill slog. Not for the faint of heart.

It's one the classic Park City trails, everyone's ridden it. But for a 1500 foot descent it's pretty boring. Buff, straight, not much in the way of natural or man made features or flow. You're still going to end up on it.
