This trail follows an old dirt road, and is open to many uses. Most of it is a gradual slope, until the climb at the end onto the ridge.

For bikers, this trail has everything: medium-distance swoopy sections, interminable lengths of baby heads, gnarly hills, rock gardens, riding through the actual stream, smooth sections of loamy soil, and motorcycles along the way. It's generally only traveled by motorcycles, but makes for an epic day long ride, with connections to Diamond Fork, Hobble Creek, and the Great Western Trail.

Access Info

From the top of Whiting/Mapleton Canyon, just follow the trail. From the East, join at the top of Kirkman Hollow trail.

      Still some whitey in places. Lots of running water where the trail and the stream are usually one. Most all of the trees and beaches are cleared now.

      This is a brutal climb. Difficult descent as well due to sections that have large rocks that you have to go over. My hands and forearms were on...
