Generally rode up, but the flow down is amazing. It is a multi-use trail, so be careful. One of the best trails in the Corner Canyon trail system.

 Not sure why it is classified as "Uphill Primary". I ride it a few times per week but I have only ever ridden it downhill and it is an awesome trail. Nearby "Clarks" is a dedicated uphill and I use it as such to feed "Canyon Hollow", "Rush", "Anns" and further up to "Jacob's Ladder" and "Ghost falls". The only reason I can think that you would use Canyon Hollow rather than Clarks for uphill is to shave 3% off the average grade.

 I agree. Canyon Hollow is a blast downhill if it's not busy, but so many people climb it that you end up having to stop every 10 seconds. But on a slow day, when you're tired of Rush, it's a great descent

 I shouldn't say this but I am always riding at first light of the morning and at that time I rarely need to stop more than once per trip. Perhaps that is how I have become such a fan.

 I changed it to bidirectional. I do see a lot of guys bombing down it, and it is fun down. But with Rush at top, and Jacobs Ladder, I would say it sees a lot more traffic up. And like you say, you have to stop every 10 seconds going down. Since this is meant to be a guide for people that don't generally know a trail system, I would still say it is more enjoyable up this trail and down one of those other trails.

 Ok. I just get a bit annoyed when someone declares a trial up or down without the stated direction of the trail system managers. If anything it exacerbates the problem for those wanting to use it downhill by making everyone believe they should be using it as an uphill. I agree that rush is great for bombing down when you want burm's and jumps. And Jacob's is fun if you like steep rocky descents, but canyon hollow offers a third element that is more bob and weave through the trees on a smooth dirt surface. More of a trail lover's downhill. And to anybody that reads this please don't bomb down any of the multi-use trails at any time of day. The Draper master plan 2016 does explore the possibility of doing and odd/even day usage model if the bikes and hikes can't get along. I hate that about the Millcreek trails and I would hope we can still have a good time without needing to "bomb" a multi-use trail.
