This description is going CCW (heading North). Lots of switchbacks, some pretty tight. One section on the face takes you through 3-4 tough rock gardens, but the climb is mostly just an easy, grinding climb. The back side (North) of the loop is the shady side which holds mud and snow longer, and provides some fun fast and flowing downhill through the trees.

You will know you are at the top when you can see both sides of the 2 valleys to the East and West. Once you drop down the backside heading counter clockwise expect miles of fast, smooth flowing trail through the aspens, with a mix of Stinging Nettle and Mint leaves so thick you can smell them.

      Epic ccw. After finishing the climb it is a dream come true all the way down.

      Enjoyed the full loop yesterday. A few new flow trails are being added to mix things up. It is a pretty great trail system!

      Trail closed from Coyote TH to Upper Riverview. Coyote TH closed. New TH coming 2022. Access from UVU TH until until then.

      Rode 11/3/2020 and lost an airpod, probably in the parking lot (south side). I know this is a long shot but if someone comes upon it, please reach out!

      Quite a few trees down on the backside.

      Really enjoyed the ride, but I would suggest this be directional, CCW. The switchbacks are way too tight for the higher speeds the backside commands. Perhaps it was designed this way for climbs either way but flow turns could have better planned.
