Fun ridge-line trail right above the Huntsman Center. Goes straight up the hill from JCC. Good views; fast, steep descent.

      You've been warned. The entire first half of this trail is HAB. I don't see how anyone other than a seasoned professional could make it up...

      The southern half of the trail is completely overgrown and indistinguishable.

       This is a hiking trail, not sure why it's on here. The climb is steep enough that anyone short of a demi-god on on 3x drivetrain will be hiking their bike the better part of the way to the top. Don't do it, cooking your brakes isn't worth the mediocre downhill either.

       Its true, this is probably a hiking trail, and you have to hike a bike to get to the top. Though if you come up from the south side, in Red Butte Canyon, its fairly easy. Early or late season in Salt Lake leaves not a a lot of fast chunky descents besides portions of Bobsled, so sometimes its fun to mix it up. This is unlike most trails in Salt Lake, and if you like downhill this will get you going a bit. A quick loop and easy to do after work.
