This trail used to get a good amount of traffic, but since The Canyons added the golf course, there is now no great access to it. It is only used to connect from Holly's up to Robs and MidMountain. Do not try to continue to Canyons, the road signage says to keep off the Golf Course. If you drop onto Rose Bud's Heaven you will just be doing a loop or reconnecting to Robs.

       You can still go up Holly‚Äôs to ambush to mid mountain, or the opposite down and out. Just the service roads are closed to public.
