Most of this is pretty easy, not sure why it is rated as intermediate. A new trail for 2016 it winds you through the park atv trail system so look both ways on a busy weekend. Offers a way to get to the whale trails as well, and has some fun little sections through the strange sandstone rocks.

      All dry except some small thin snow patches. No mud though. Trail does have some damage to its sandy soil from some motorcycle traffic poaching it.

       This was my first time out to the Three Peaks Recreation Area and I'm so glad I decided to bring my MTB with me on our trip up to Cedar. (We had an ATV Race at a track called Iron Mine Race Park which just happens to be down the road from Three Peaks). I decided to just do a drive by in my truck so I knew what to expect and figure out how to get to the trail head. I found there were two ways: one was on the dirt road winding through the entire "park" and the other was coming from 4800 st to MidValley Rd which took you directly to the trail head. I'm new to MTBing so I was a little nervous about getting lost. I knew it was going to be awesome once I drove around. The following day I brought my Anthem 2 with me and I hit the Practice Loop to test out using Trail Forks and getting my bearings of the area. The next day I got up the nerve to hit Twilight and oh man was it so much fun. Twilight Zone was a welcome change from my local trails which are loose over hard pack. ( Lake Havasu City, AZ). I really enjoyed the flow over the sandstone rock and found that it was just challenging enough that it made this beginner feel like I did something cool but it wasn't scary or overwhelming, if that makes sense. I would say this trail is very beginner friendly but also offers enough options for the experience rider. The first time I rode it I only went half way and turned around...two reasons: one I was new to it and a little afraid of getting lost and second because it was getting late and I wasn't sure how long it would take me to complete it. The last day I was able to ride out there I completed Twilight which takes you to Jumbled Jonah I believe. I circled completely around Jumbled Jonah (that was kind of technical but fun) and then went back up Twilight to the Practice Loop. I plan on doing a trip just to camp and ride at Three Peaks if that gives you an idea on how much I enjoyed it. They maintain these trails so well, in fact, I got to meet some of the people working on the trail system while I was out there, very cool!

       Fun twisty trail through junipers and sage Wish I would have brought my fatty though. Slickrock and sandy. I made a nice loop by jumping on the 3 peaks trail at the top and later dropping down on the race loop. Still pretty warm at midday at the end of August. Should have done it morning/evening
