Uphill only for cyclists. This is a great way to access Mid Mountain and Pinecone. As far as climbing trails go, this one is a good steady grade, but does have a few minor technical areas. When the trail was first built, it was pretty smooth, but through time some more jagged rocks have worn through. When doing looping routes from PCMR, I like to do this climb first, while I am fresh and leave the smoother climbing trails for later.

       It is an uphill slog. Not for the faint of heart.

       One of the nicest climbing trails in the Wasatch.

       Wouldn’t call a slog, it’s pretty gradual and smooth. Easy climbing.

       As straight up climbs go, this one is as nice as you’ll find. The grade isn’t bad and mostly shade, but if you’re coming from sea level, you’re probably going to sucking air all the way up. Stay hydrated too.

       This is a good challenging uphill without being overly brutal. Great way to access many other trails and it is nice that its shaded most of the way.

       This is an awesome trail with stunning views. Uphill but mellow grade and nothing technical.

       These reviews must be based on age of the reviewer...I’m 74 and it’s a HARD slog for me!
