After the initial climb from the parking area, this trail climbs gently the entire way. The lower portion of the trail passes through mixed aspen and conifer forest. The trail then enters a large open meadow that has one large fir tree next to the trail. The upper portion of the trail again winds through mixed aspen and conifer forest until it ends at the junction with Rock Springs Trail, No. 101. Many riders like to shuttle this and skip the climbing.

Access Info

Access 1: Take the Nebo Loop Road from Payson to Pete Winward Road, No. 312. The turnoff for this road is just before a cattle guard. There is a large flat graveled parking area on the right side of the road. Follow the dirt road until you come to another, smaller graveled parking area which has a pole fencing around it. There is currently no sign for this trail as it was destroyed by vandalism. The tail is accessed by following the abandoned road directly above the parking area to the top of the hill. At the top of the hill the trail runs north-south. Turn right.
Access 2: Take the Nebo Loop Road to the junction with the Santaquin Canyon Road. There is a small turnout next to the Holman Experimental Enclosure (a small fenced area). Park at this turnout and take the Holman Canyon Spur Trail to the north until it ends at Rock Springs Trail, No. 101 Turn right here and go approximately 1/8 mile to the Shram Creek-Rock Srping Trail junction. The junction is next to a small stream and is signed.

Be careful toward the bottom third of the trail (after you hit the dry riverbed). Equestrians have intentionally downed trees all over the place...

There are some soggy, wet, muddy areas that are made even worse from horses etc. I would wait a couple weeks from the date of this posting to ride it.

 I rode this the uphill direction, and it has some very steep parts that are ride able if you are amazing. Horses seem to use this trail a lot, not my favorite, certainly won't do it uphill again.
