Maybe the best stretch of singletrack in AF Canyon, going down. South Fork Little Deer Creek is a great trail to ride in preparation for the nearby Tibble Fork and Mud Springs trails. There are a few roots and other technical trail features but most of the trail is pretty flowy. Riding up ridge trail 157, then down Little Deer Creek, makes a good loop. With elevation around 8000 feet you'll turn into a mountain athlete in no time.

 One of the most fun trails in the area. Mostly smooth, fast, not too technical.

 One of my favorites!

PS I stumbled on this AF Canyon map that shows steepness from above: www.interactiveatvtrails.com/american-fork-and-mill-canyon-ohv-system-map.html
