Many fast sections and many steep uphills. Mostly in scrub oak, but some loamy descents in fir forest. Mostly used as a motorcycle trail (which can get very dusty, especially on steep hills), but is still a fun bike.

      This was, by FAR, the dryest, moon dustiest trail I have ever ridden in my entire life.

      Four wheelers and side-by-sides have turned this into 6 inches of double-track moon dust, from the eastern end up to and including the top portion...

      reporter The part I did was very dusty. Not much can be done about it though.

       Very fun trail! Has some amazing technical single track followed by some fast up and down.

       Fun on a dirt bike. I started at the whiting campground and went up. There was a tree blocking the trail close to Kirkman Hollow so I chose to turn around.

      I would recommend staying away on weekends because there are a lot of families on the hiking trail near the campground. I got a lot of nasty looks for riding a dirt bike on it.

       Rode Mountain bike from top of saw mill to mapleton city. The southern half of the Mapleton-Sawmill Hallow trail #8013 is unrideable. From the top of Mapleton Canyon north to Kirkman Hollow is about 9 miles. 4-7 miles are nothing but large, cobbles. Unrideable on a mountain bike. Perhaps the worst mountain bike trail along the Wasatch Front. Packard and Kirkman are great rides. Don't waste you day on Mapleton-Sawmill Hollow.
