According to signage on the red butte side, this trail is closed for construction of a water tank.

Great trail, besides all of the dipshits that can’t read the signs indicating DH only! Lots of walkers on the bike trail… sad!

This trail is fun, like any trail there are some spots that need to be touched up some to improve the ride. It takes a few times to get the feeling and to know where pedal, where to pump and to cruise. Those complaining about the trail most likely aren’t good all around mountain bikers and we’re just expecting another down hill trail like bobsled. Watch some videos and learn how to absorb & pump rollers to create speed and flow better.

This trail misses the mark. The flow is just off and it’s a schizophrenic descent. Very easy to build speed into weirdly deep and tight corners. Soooo many whoopses. There are definitely some fun features but it alternated between between boring and terrifying.

Not bad and good addition to this area. Some random bumps, rolls, and uphills that don’t flow that well but it’s a new trail will only get better with time. Couple rowdy parts at the bottom if you’re going quick.

Fun addition to the trail system. Rides really well when it’s tacky, kinda’ harsh when it’s dry (most of the time). I hope this thing lasts, seems like a gamble to build this style of trail in that type of soil, and traffic volume.

Too many jumps?? Every single thing can be rolled over, felt like a pump track honestly, snd the trail felt a little confused, if it’s a flow trail, a jump trail or some sort of pump trail on steroids, a little tough to keep speed up top. But a fun trail non the less, would ride much better with moisture in the dirt, so i will probably avoid this on dusty and dry days.

I wanted to like this trail more. It's not bad - I like the jumps/rollers and there are some nice corners, but other corners are a bit loose or off-camber and a bit sketchy (which may get worse if the dirt loosens up). I appreciate having another DH option though.

Not a bad trail. First half is a bit "pedally". The last portion is pretty fun as you come down off the hill.

Nice trail and happy to have some new routes (thank you builders!) but I wish it had more flow to it. Maybe less jumps? But nice alt route none the less.

If you lost a jacket on this trail some time between Oct 26-29, 2020, send an email to sarakyeo@yahoo.com and describe the brand, color, and what's in its pockets to get it back!

Short connection from BST to Dry Creek entrance. A short section of exposure and the narrowness of this trail makes it less ideal for beginners, but an easy enough hike a bike down if you decide it's too sketch.

Great learners trail but short. It’s got technical sections you can get better on but it’s not the whole trail, so you get a break in between.

The trail is pretty fun. Nothing too crazy except one area with tons of large rocks. Could see how that area would cause some issues. Just noting, it seems most people go up this. It is much more fun going down. So, if going down - be ready to have to slow down in some of the blind corners/turns.
