Tired of killing yourself going up the firing range? Now there's an alternative similar to crop circles and what not. Takes you up to Ireland and beyond.

Access Info

Go up the water tank road and turn left after the scary chlorine fenced door thing and the trail starts right next to the fence. True story.

      99% dry, a few damp areas in the trees but no mud or sticky areas. The closed switch backs above the shooting range makes for a short hike-a-bike...

       El Pistolero? Everyone I know calls it Shooter.
      I agree it's uphill preferred, but it's also a good downhill.

       Brutal uphill climb for this old man who needs the exercise. Shouldn't be a problem for anyone who's in decent shape. Very nice scenery.

       I went up, then down. Lots of fun coming down, but you find out why it's an uphill trail primarily. Very sharp corners, not to be taken at speed. It helped to kind of brake skid with the inside foot down on the trail.

       I hear the lower Shooter switch backs are blocked to make the Orem Police shooting range area safer. Will hopefully be re-routed next season
