This section of the JEM trail is amazing. The whole ride down is full of fast flowing turns. There are a couple of technical sections but nothing to stress about. Definitely worth the short climb... and definitely worth doing more than one lap!

 Not sure why this Trail get such high reviews I would take my kids on it but that's about all maybe I missed something?

 I don't know how this trail gets such high ratings. If riding through flat sagebrush is you're thing, you'll love it. If you're competent on a bike and looking for a memorable ride, avoid JEM trail. However, it would be a fun trail to ride with my young children.

 When I used to live in the Midwest I thought this trail was awesome. After living out west for a while I came back and found this trail rather flat pedally and boring. If you are an xc guy you will love it. If you are a gravity type rider I'd look for something else

 This trail used to be a high speed buff rally through the sage. As of Fall 2016 it was a rutted mess. I'd recommend Dead Ringer instead for a descent.

 This is a great post goose ride. Fast flowy and fun. Have a bro drop u off at the trail head and pick you up at the bottom parking lot. 30 minutes and your done

 The short stretch at the bottom along the high cliffs above the river is sort of interesting and unique but an overall bland and not very fun trail. Worth checking off the list but not one I need to ride again.
