Great little connector between the City Creek trails and Terrace Hills section of BST bringing you to the older entrance of the Bobsled. The trail at the top is skinny and side-sloped so watch for pedal strikes. It drops into a valley that is steep with shaded switchbacks. That shade holds snow long after the season and the clay is tacky and thick. The climb up to the Bobsled entrance is pretty straightforward and not as steep as the City Creek side. There is a spur to an overlook of City Creek Canyon but note that bikes are not allowed on the City Creek trails so look but don't proceed further.

Disclaimer

Tacky clay and snow stick around in the shade.

 alt line to the road, not sure why the double black. The only sketchy part is going to fast in a crowded area, easier than bob sled for sure. This is a blue
