Narrow and raw. This trail was built by locals and at times feels like a game trail. Some really steep sections. Does provide some great little tracks through the trees and great views of Provo Canyon

      Very overgrown for the first (western) half. Is this still an open trail? Other closed areas nearby had good signage, but I didn't see any on this...

      The Eastern half is in great shape. But the Western half (the part bypassed by Ouch) is overgrown and horse-pocked. Still rideable, but the...

       This trail is really steep. I would recommend doing it as a downhill only. I had to hike my bike up a few spots coming up it. Pretty views at top, but not my favorite trail.

       It is overgrown with several downed trees one was really hard to get around!!! Steep with loose rocks in sections that made for some not so fun ridding. I won’t be riding the top part of this trail again but the bottom part was fun and can be accessed from Ouch that’s the way to go.

       First part of this trail is very rough and rugged lots of rocks and over grown bushes. Then I rode ‘ouch’ which started out similar but opened up into a faster decent with some technical turns and some tight trees. That kicked me back out onto Taj Mahal and it was fast and fun with some rocks which then turns into tight tech riding then opens back up with fast turns and some rocks. Super fun coming down but definitely not my favorite to climb
