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.

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

       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).

       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.

       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.

       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.

       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.

       Literally saw a guy riding up the trail today, and no he was not sessioning. Cause why not 2020? He also might have been full spandex ????????‍♂️. Either way, dud got yelled at. Care out there.
