Usually ridden as a descent from the tower road climb, though it can be climbed from City Creek. Begins with rolling singletrack with a gentle climb grade to the ridge behind Ensign Peak. Then descents fast and somewhat loose singletrack to switchbacks down into City Creek. The single/doubletrack out City Creek is fast and flowing, but be careful of hikers.
