Much of trail traverses large rock slabs giving you a little taste of Moab. Silver Creek flows over rocks beside the trail with wonderful clear pools in which to relax and play. The south end of trail runs along beautiful Utica Reservoir, a scenic place to leave a shuttle vehicle and have a swim after your ride. From here if you want to get back to Bear Valley you have to ride back up Spicer Road and the Hwy 4 to the AT&T Trail.

      4 wheelers have totally messed up this for biking. Good challenge for expert riders but not very fun. Deep dust and lots of endo opportunities.

      Rode this trail when motivation was low so could be fun if motivated but its basically a rough fireroad with lots of loose rocks and some embedded slick rock at times. Only rode about half of it and turned around. Biking back up it was fun actually. If you are in the area I personally enjoyed Upper and Lower Rings trail and Bee Gultch way more.

      Meh. More bouldering than slick rock. Fun to do once.
