A great way to experience some of the best of Eagle Mountain singletrack. Best ridden clockwise. Park at the Elementary School. Best ridden early spring or late fall as there is no shade and no water, but low elevation and open terrain mean it's some of the first trails to dry out in the spring.

Also, in the afternoon/evening, you get epic views of Mt. Timpanogos across golden open valleys - Purple Mountains Majesty

More fun than it looks. Barely need your brakes going downhill (Northwest)

I don't recall there being sprinklers here. Was that a rattler I heard?

There is no reason that deadwood shouldn’t be climbed. It is not directional, nor should it be, great climb, somewhat boring downhill.

This trail definitely feels like a green trail to me. Compared to everything else in this area this is one of my least favorite trails. It could be a good climbing trail though. I'd much rather ride anything off of prayer flags, Given to Fly, Brass Monkey, or Creed if I'm in this area.

Gets a bad rap for the steep uphill in the middle. Still very good trail and has some really, really fast sections if you work for it.

Nirvana begins at prayer flags and is a fun sort of downhill trail that smacks you in the face with some hard climbs. By my count Nirvana consists of – downhill, climb, downhill, climb, downhill. It’s not the best trail in Eagle Mountain but it’s fun enough.

Deadwood is a fun, mostly downhill trail that’s on our course every time we ride Eagle Mountain. Pedaling is necessary to maintain speed throughout Deadwood and there’s some fun turns and pops throughout.

I'm not sure why this trail is so highly rated, it's generic, flat, and pedally for the most part. Towards the end there is a nice flowy section.

Loved this trail. It had some great climbing and had opportunities to fine tune technical skills over rocky sections while climbing. I loved the man made and natural features on the trail. Overall it was a great all around trail. Yes, you have to cross a fire road but the trail continues on the other side so no biggie.

This trail is more green in both directions than anything else I have ridden. I felt like I had to stay on the pedals all the way down to maintain speed, sort of like riding a converted rail trail. No doubt this will be my go to if I am taking someone on their first ever mountain bike ride. There is perhaps a flaw with our difficulty rating system if this and Big mountain trail can be rated the same difficulty. Even Anns trail feels like a black in comparison.

This was a terrible trail! Very primitive, loose rocks and sand almost everywhere, some cliffs you couldn’t ride up. Led to a dirt road leading down to the water tower that was covered in loose rocks and was super sketchy to ride. Avoid it!

Still a work in progress. Although entirely rideable, It’s only about 30-35% completed.

Lots of powdery snow that hasn’t been packed yet. Mine were the second tracks behind a fat bike and I struggled on skinnies. Walk a lot of it
