New trail just in time for Fall riding 2019, works as a good loop for Black Forest. If you are not going to drop down Black Forest, it is recommended to be an out-n-back. The trails in the area are not directional, but most riders climb up Fat Lip and down Black Forest.

This is Phase 1 of a 2 Phase project. Phase 2 will be an additional connection linking to Shadow Lake and Scott's Bowl to be completed Summer 2020.

       Nice location, but was machine built and no finishing work done, so the downhill side of the trail is a mess and the trail will need lots of maintenance.

       Another straight line dirt sidewalk. Poorly designed by clueless people.

       ^wasn't gonna say it but it’s true. At least build some lips to jump if you’re gonna go through the process of machine building. We need more steeper hand dug trails. St least it makes for a quick connect to Black Forest, the only good thing.

       Just what we need, another dirt sidewalk delivering goofballs to Black Forest.

       This is a fine trail which finally allows connecting upper Deer Valley with upper Park City. I disagree with the negativity of the older comments, at least I had plenty fun biking from Black Forest towards DV

       We do need more directional trails with more dh trail options. Go to other mtb towns and you will see how it’s done

       I also disagree with the negative comments... I would say in a trail as smooth as this which is good for beginners and is well taken care of is good in my book. Thanks to those who created it and keep it up to date as I've written it twice now and the second time I brought my wife and dog along for the fun.
