This is adventure riding. Trails are not maintained for mountain biking and conditions are variable. You will need to push your bike occasionally up steep, loose rock sections or carry it over down trees etc. No deep sand at least, so that's nice. There's fun riding mixed in too, and great views.

I've ridden the loop counter-clockwise but either direction is possible. Counter-clockwise from the parking lot: steep, difficult climb up the chokecherry ATV trail to intersection with Wildcat trail and Terrace trail. Terrace trail is a non-motorized trail, typically for hiking and horses (and cows). Please give hikers and horseback riders the right-of-way. The start of the trail, in the alpine meadow, may be indistinct but it becomes clearer as you enter the forest. Some singletrack through beautiful aspen groves, meadows and over creeks, although parts are hit hard by cows. Singletrack ends at the top of Forest Road 247 which makes for a fun, fast descent back to highway 12 (you can also go right at the singletrack-247 intersection and ride towards Meeks Lake). Ride the highway back up the hill to your car. It's a pleasant, short-ish road ride with spectacular views.

Access Info

Just north of the (epic) Larb Hollow overlook on highway 12 between Torrey and Boulder, park in pull-off on east side of road (forest road 576). The chokecherry ATV 2-track starts climbing across the road to the west. For the ATV trail, the trail sign says 5174, the Dixie National Forest map and GoogleMaps say chokecherry 35173 and, finally, NatGeo/Trails Illustrated map labels it 173. Weird. You'll find it. I have not encountered ATVs on the trail but they definitely use it. Please be respectful of multiple uses (it is an ATV trail, after all).
