For a long time this trail was both a climb and descend trail. Since the Armstrong Trail (Uphill Only) was built, this trail has been commonly referred to as a DH only trail. Berms have been put in and it has it's fair share of washboard ruts before the turns now. While it is fast down, you still have the occasional hiker and rider coming up, so be watchful

      Braking bumps all the way down, even on the berms. Also tons of moondust.

      Moon dust, braking bumps and kooks hiking up the trail. This is the most dangerous trail in Utah

       It's one the classic Park City trails, everyone's ridden it. But for a 1500 foot descent it's pretty boring. Buff, straight, not much in the way of natural or man made features or flow. You're still going to end up on it.

       I know this trail is very popular, but I did it a couple of days ago and it was not very fun. It was a serious washboard. Even the berms. Kind of disappointed. Hopefully it gets some TLC.

       You can technically go up it, but just don’t. Nobody does except lost people on rental bikes. Armstrong is uphill only and goes to the same area.

       Spiro above Ham is still a common uphill route, not just for “lost people on rental bikes” but for real locals who have been riding it since it was built. Please be careful and respectful of hikers and uphill riders!
