Not a green. Various roots and rocks. Overgrown. Not a difficult grade overall but very narrow and some tough short ups in places. Jones Ranch is way easier and smoother.

Skip the top half. Super blown out. The second half entering from the other trails is fun.

The Spanish Fork NFS ripped down the jumps to flex their power. They're idiots.

Rode this today and there are exactly 0 stumps or jumps..? Not sure where they went. Also if you’re looking for a good downhill, don’t bother going up to the start of this trail, just start on Kuntz.

Don NOT go up via Santaquin canyon as the directions suggest on Google and trail forks maps. Santaquinn canyon Road is indefinitley closed due to a massive mudslide. Go via payson CANYON, Nebo loop road.

Verified as of 8/27/22. Traveled the length of the canyon, and not even 1/10th of the needed repairs are done. Barely started, not actively working it.

This is a beautiful trail with amazing views! There is significant fire damage in the area. After the fact, we realized some sections of the trail are closed.

This has become one of my favorite trails in the area (along with Jones Ranch). If you are going from the northeast to the southwest, there is one short steep hill under tree cover that is a blast to climb--the challenge is to not lose traction and make it all the way up without your legs falling off. I met some guys on downhill bikes there one day, so I guess it's fun to rip down too, but it isn't very long. See how fast you can climb it (or if you can climb it).

Completely destroyed post fire and with moto traffic. Everything is about 4 inch deep moon dust. Trees have been cleared though.

Trail is closed due to excessive hazards from the fire in 2018.

This is a beautiful ride. I recommend starting here west and heading east, and carrying on all the way to the end Bernie creek if you want more down hill. That will give you a good day of near ten miles of mostly DH.

Rode this june 10th. No snow. It was a little over grown and couple of wet spots but was still an awesome ride. Beautiful right now. Very fun to ride this. Finish up with Bernie creek for a fuller ride.

Trail is pretty fun when it's been ridden/groomed, no downed trees or mud. The views alone are worth it.

I rode this on June 2, 2016. The trail is pretty torn up from cattle and horses. Lots of dead trees in the trail.

I rode this on June 3 and it was super post-holed and there were many deadfalls in the trail making it really hard to get in a rhythm. Some really boggy areas still. About 3 weeks from being good again.

This mountain could use some rain. The trail is mostly moon dust. Way too early in the season to be so dry. No downed trees though.
