Great trail, that has nice wide turns, easy to ride up and down on a bike. There are a few little loose sections, but the trail is mostly easy. This takes you up to the Salt Lake Monument, which is a small monument to the Great Salt Lake, not to be confused with Ensign Peak further up. Fun up and down, this trail nos provides a full loop around Ensign Peak, and a better option to drop off the steep part and ride down without trudging through all the hikers coming up the main trail.

      Surprisingly nice little trail. Needs more traffic. Some corners challenging due to loose gravel and odd banks.
