Mostly rolling singletrack that traverses the mountain an mostly climbs from Alpine to the Three Falls Connections. there is one descent down some switchbacks when heading towards Three Falls and gets a bit sandy in the tight turns. No berms, so you drift a good amount on the turns or take them really slow. Great views of Box Elder Peak and Utah Lake from multiple angles on the trail, and makes for a full connection to Corner Canyon with some loop options when including some road.
