Turn right on the Ridge Trail and climb (hike a bike) to a saddle where you are now staring down into Dry Fork. Sunset Peak is on your left. Hold on tight and descend the loose and rocky section of 157. Continue on Ridge 157 all the way to the junction with Tibble Fork Trail 041. (START OF TIMED SECTION) Blast down this awesome section hauling over rocks and logs. Look for the junction with mud springs (173), Stay right on the Mud springs trail. Mud springs eventually hooks up with Mill Canyon (040). Continue down Mill Canyon to the trail head.

      Awesome single track for a dirt bike. Super dusty this time of year but still a great trail. Good views. We climbed to the northern tip of the trail up near the ski resorts and ot was an awesome view and a good challenging climb.
