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.
