Wonderful trail. Nicely routed and maintained. There are a few fun rock features but otherwise the tech is moderate, but that doesn’t take away from the fun. We finished by coming down New To This. That was a fun way to finish. Overall a very enjoyable ride.

A gentle and well-built climbing trail with only about 4 small sections with rideable, smooth boulders. Great views.

Trail Chukar Butte
Fun trail. Agree with the other comments, but would emphasize the bit about the small portion of trail after the 2 track being busted and that it would be better / easier to take the little road right above it.

The section just after the 2 track has been totally destroyed by cow stomps. Easier to just take the old road above the trail at this point.

Fun trail. Smooth and flowy on the western half of the trail up to the ridge. The eastern half has some rock gardens that are tricky to climb (in both directions).

Trail is actually open. Popular for hikers but also probably the best XC trail at the resort right now. Take it easy on your speed, but still very enjoyable. More pine tree sections than most other trails.

I really like this trail, but the long climb to get out felt like a bummer as I wanted the trail to keep going. So in other words, it felt short. What IS there is a lot of fun.

Trail Sweet Connie
Riding as a DH, that final climb up the gully is (IMO) not cool. For as nice and Intermediate 97% of the trail is, to have a finish with several crazy hard rock features to climb up, just felt totally wrong. That's my opinion...

This trail is just delightful. Easy climbs, fast fun flows, a few technical rocks just to keep things interesting and great views. All levels can ride and enjoy this at any speeds. A must ride for the region.

Trail Dry Creek
This trail is crazy fun. Starts super fast and flows well. Then keeps flowing with a bunch of creek crossings with skinny bridge options, you can take the bridges or fly through most creeks. Then the latter part opens up again for fast single track. The very end has some short technical climbs. But for the most part this trail all speedy fun!

Trail Mahalo
This trail is OK. The downhill has some fun bits broken up by sharp switch backs. Never quite gets it’s flow going. And has some climbing. It’s not a destination trail, but worth doing as part of longer rides, it’s way mor fun than just riding the road to dry creek.

The trail was absolutely beautiful, even with the smoke. Also want to reiterate that it is one way only (counter-clockwise), and also way more fun in the one way direction cause you can finish with one of the downhill chairlift access trails. Would do it again.

Great views, but just ok as a mtb ride. Not sure I agree with the counter clockwise suggestions, unless you like climbing rocks and descending flat stuff.

Lots of hikers on this trail. Has some uphill if you're coming from the DH park to check out the other side.

Fun, clean trail. Contrary to what Trailforks shows, and in accord to what the locals will say, it flows best in counterclockwise fashion, starting at Deer Point and ending at Brewer's Byway
