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.

Some damp spots, some soft muddy spots. Trail is riding very slow due to moisture. Could use another day or two to dry out.
