This is the big one, the final ride to get the Boy Scout Mountain Biking Merit Badge, the 22 Miler. It is not easy to find this much singletrack that does not overlap close to town, but thankfully we have Draper City's Corner Canyon. Starting from the Equestrian center, this entire route takes you on 95% single track, with only a half mile of overlap. At this point in the merit badge the boy scout should be skilled enough to handle everything on this route. Though the route is entirely beginner to intermediate there are some really fun sections and excellent views.

The highlight will be the Rush trail. It is a downhill specific flow trail with lots of banked turns (berms) and fun sections. It is intermediate skill down but there are some difficult parts. When you get to the bottom of Rush there is a wide open area with a kiosk that serves as a major juction. This is a great time to stop and have lunch. You will be just over half-way done at 12.5 miles.

After lunch you will take a slow spin up Canyon Hollow for the downhill section of Ghost Falls. This is a fun, fast and smooth downhill section, but remember that it is not dedicated downhill, so keep your speed down and look for uphill riders. The final push will be out to a massive suspension bridge. You don't cross the bridge, but it is a great place to stop and take some photos before turn around.

From the bridge you flow slowly downhill. This section of the route is perfect for ending a long day with a lot of tired legs. You get a lot of great miles without a lot of speed, just smooth sailing. A short grunt up the dirt road where you stopped for lunch will take you to the final downhill of Creek View on down to the parking lot and done.

Real good trail, with some line choices, good skinny single track. Used to be downhill only, but not anymore, they need to remove the downhill only signs

I always passed this one up going down to lower rush instead. This is my new favorite route! The trip back to coyote hollow is great as well via bst.

Entire thing is completely redone, and some how they managed to keep every single bump there, before it was smooth but destroyed, and now it’s renewed and rough. I don’t know what the trail builders were thinking, they have put jumps in places that don’t make sense, half of the jumps don’t work and most don’t even have good lips, even though it was recently built. I decided to go again, on a full suspension, but surprisingly I still felt every bump the same. The amount of things that just didn’t work on the trail surprised me, and I truly like the way the trail was before the redo.

The lower section of this trail has been redone, with amazing new jumps, it has way more flow than the rest of rush, there is also a ten foot optional gap jump at the end for more advanced riders, would recommend!!!!! There is no ruts or brake bumps or anything

Not for Beginners IMO, especially if on an eBike. This is a very narrow loose dirt trails full of steep switchbacks with some dangerous side trail drop-offs. 20-30% Grades with a couple 70% Grades (albeit Short Climbs). There are also some sections with a bit of overgrown sage brush. If this trail could be widened, it would be a very different experience.

The whole trail is destroyed now. Break bumps and holes everywhere. You’re better off riding this earlier in the year when it’s a bit less beat up.

Fun downhill riding through the trees. Not as much fun riding uphill, but the climbing wasn’t bad. Can be pretty dusty during the summer months.

This trail needs to be broken into segments. The upper segment has vastly different dirt conditions than lower, due to the aspect of the trail.

Bear canyon itself caused me to ride elsewhere since I got tired of hike a bike. Now hidden valley is a regular trailhead for me. There are one or two other changes as well, but the old trails still exist if u want to make a go at it. The whole thing is still fairly technical and keeps away the riff raff.

Edit: should be blue, not black. The Bear Cyn bridge and a couple other route changes in the last couple years have made this section of the BST much more rideable

Fun and fast and very popular with hikers heading to/from the Bear Cyn bridge. Other than the traffic, should likely be rated green, not black

Ann's Trail West is, in many places, narrow and rocky with a drop-off on one side. As a long-time road cyclist/relatively inexperienced mountain biker, I found it a little harrowing. Ann's East, OTOH, was a blast. Shadier too.

I changed it to bidirectional. I do see a lot of guys bombing down it, and it is fun down. But with Rush at top, and Jacobs Ladder, I would say it sees a lot more traffic up. And like you say, you have to stop every 10 seconds going down. Since this is meant to be a guide for people that don't generally know a trail system, I would still say it is more enjoyable up this trail and down one of those other trails.

NSmith11 (Oct 13, 2016 at 15:31)
Ok. I just get a bit annoyed when someone declares a trial up or down without the stated direction of the trail system managers. If anything it exacerbates the problem for those wanting to use it downhill by making everyone believe they should be using it as an uphill. I agree that rush is great for bombing down when you want burm's and jumps. And Jacob's is fun if you like steep rocky descents, but canyon hollow offers a third element that is more bob and weave through the trees on a smooth dirt surface. More of a trail lover's downhill. And to anybody that reads this please don't bomb down any of the multi-use trails at any time of day. The Draper master plan 2016 does explore the possibility of doing and odd/even day usage model if the bikes and hikes can't get along. I hate that about the Millcreek trails and I would hope we can still have a good time without needing to "bomb" a multi-use trail.

Not sure why it is classified as "Uphill Primary". I ride it a few times per week but I have only ever ridden it downhill and it is an awesome trail. Nearby "Clarks" is a dedicated uphill and I use it as such to feed "Canyon Hollow", "Rush", "Anns" and further up to "Jacob's Ladder" and "Ghost falls". The only reason I can think that you would use Canyon Hollow rather than Clarks for uphill is to shave 3% off the average grade.

mkb5150 (Sep 14, 2016 at 9:24)
I agree. Canyon Hollow is a blast downhill if it's not busy, but so many people climb it that you end up having to stop every 10 seconds. But on a slow day, when you're tired of Rush, it's a great descent

I shouldn't say this but I am always riding at first light of the morning and at that time I rarely need to stop more than once per trip. Perhaps that is how I have become such a fan.

Ha ha. So actually yes, its intermediate. It was imported from skidmap, which used red (Double Diamond) to indicate "DH Only". Not a direct mapping of difficulties. There are some other trails like that out there, I am cleaning them up. Thanks

Double black diamond for Rush? Someone was on crack when rating this. It's a blue. Intermediate trail.
