Heading up, it starts out likely to be your favorite trail ever: not too steep, beautiful fields, the occasional technical gully crossing, ponderosa pines and loamy soil here and there. Then, it gets steep. Very steep. Bike-as-an-iceaxe steep. But that doesn't last too long, and soon you're at the top.

Going down, it's awesome. The start is steep, with tree root sections and little drops to negotiate, with a few very steep sections to try not to slide through. Then, it levels out a bit, and gets fast and smooth, with just enough variation to keep you paying attention.

Honestly, though, it might be a better shuttle ride. That top section is steep. This trail would be very tricky in wet conditions.

Access Info

Bottom: from the Diamond Fork road, just above all the hot-pots, once the canyon opens up a bit.
Top: from the access road that goes past Pumphouse Hill. Look for the trailhead on the left. Marked as trail 013.

 This trail is fast and fun and best ridden as a shuttle. Get ready for dust though, like more dust and dirt then you've ever ridden. While it is a pretty smooth trail the dirt bikes have left a good 3-4 inches of that fine dust on the trail.
