Great hike with varying terrain that takes you on some rock shelves and then down through a basalt field before connecting up with Snow Canyon at the Johnson.

Technically you can mountain bike this, but not so funn

       A really fun trail for the most part. Decent flow. The only complaint I had was that one or two areas are nearly imposible to ride on.

       Definitely not a trail to ride up from Snow Canyon into the Paradise area. If you do it that way just plan on hiking, most of it isn’t rideable. I’m not giving a rating because I haven’t done it from the top down, which does seem like it would be way more fun. Just definitely don’t ride it from the bottom up!
