Starting at the Spring Hollow Trailhead parking lot in American Fork Canyon, this is created as section 1 of a bikepacking trip to Ogden via as much dirt as possible. The section of ridge trail 157 into brighton will be mostly hike a bike unless you have legendary skills from what I understand (still need to ride-test it).
