This is probably the longest section of trail that makes up the old Provo Canyon Race Course. Used mostly as a climbing trail and named for the Mountain View High School Mountain Bike Race Team, aka the Bruins. Easy and smooth singletrack climb with some slightly punchy turns, but mostly pretty easy.
