This is an iconic local Salt Lake City downhill trail. At the top there is a flat area to congregate and pad up. The first section is typically some fast and rough berms that can get a bit choppy from both the brake bumps and often spring water finds a channel right down the middle.

After that it opens up into big berms with many jump and gap options. This is the trail with the old rusty car gaps.

      Riding great right now. Get out there before it snows again. There are a couple of snowy spots about half way down up on the berms, but it’s hardly any - you can ride on it just fine.

      The bob is a gravelly mess right now. You'd want to hit this at speed but with so many loose rocks, large ruts, gravelly sections it's hard to hit with the confidence of years past.

      Anyone want to get together to do some maintenance? Vegetation needs to be trimmed back on almost the entire thing, large very loose rocks need to be tossed, jumps broken and rutted out.
      Very fun trail back in the day, it’s been over 10 years since I have ridden it, and Saturday I crashed 7 times going down it largely due to the above mentioned things.

      Trail is sick, little rutted out at the top, so easy on the brakes, especially up top. This trail has something for everyone, from small doubles and tables to massive gaps you can work up to. Had a blast!

      Rode this trail for the first time today and it is in my top 10 non-lift trails.

      Ridiculous, flowy berms, big drops, jumps made out of cars?? What more could you want out of a trail?

      Can’t wait to come back here with a few friends and session the lower section.

      I’ve never seen so many wasps in 1 spot in my life. Right around the first rut drop in the upper 1/3. I don’t know how I didn’t get stung.

      Be careful out there, a rider informed me before o dropped in that there was a bunch of wasps around the creek bed. And he wasn’t wrong, there’s a huge swarm that you either need to bomb through or wear long sleeves for. Other than that what a great run.

      If the top wasn't so washed out it'd be a great overall trail. Still gave it a 5 star though. Ready fun, high berms all the way down the gully.

      Most fun trail in the area. Fast half pipe like in the summer, still a blast with 5" of fresh snow (bring a fat bike - like my $360 Mongoose Juneau, cheap but effective).

      This trail is amazing and easy to access. I have yet to do a car jump, but I am anticipating the season to come.
