Rollercoaster singletrack when riding down from Clavicle Hill area. From the reverse direction it is an easy to moderate climb that accesses Stucki Springs and Clavicle Hill areas from the Bloomington parking lot. Flowy desert trail on hard packed clay. Make sure to stay on the marked trail.

       Whole areas destroyed by people riding whereever the hell they feel like. Land to the SW is even worse with trash, bottles, pallets and shotgun shells everywhere. Kinda have a shitty feeling riding here. Good free camping though, I guess.

       This would have been great if ass hole people would preserve the trails. As it is there’s 10 different options every 20 feet or so. Half of them are jokes and ruin the flow. Thanks for ruining the trails

       Much easier trail than anticipated. There are a few intermediate trails but most are easy. Great for riders of varying levels.

       Pretty horrible trail. People riding wherever they want ruin the trail. Big gap on one which is blind and unclearable. But the drops are fun, if you like ‘em big and loose

       There are a lot of negative comments on this trail and I'm surprised, this trail is an absolute blast to go to with any level of experience. There are a ton of insane drops and many little features that have been built into the trail to make it a ton of fun to ride. There are not many times in the trail where there is not some sort of feature to have fun with. In my top 3 trails in the Southern Utah area.

       Came across the option on a short gravel bike loop. Good fun for drop bar bike. Lots of options. Well maintained and lots of markers keeping me on the easy route and away from big drops. Would be fun to actually learn the trail.
