A new trail for 2016 starting just off the Practice Loop. This trail heads southwest towards the Rocky Peak Trailhead and campground. It consists of lots of sandstone rock features, with a few unique wooden ladder bridges that are integrated into the rock features. Most sections of rock have blue spray-paint dotted to guide the way.

      This was my favorite trail here. The rocks were so much fun, especially some of the harder lines just next to the trail. (I haven't ridden even close to everything. I cut inward before the whale trails and looped the inner back around the closest peak. If I ride it again I would stay south and do all the rockiest sections out and back. I hope to explore the full area more later.)

      Personally I consider this a blue instead of green, it was super easy for me, but while riding I think about if my wife and kids would want to ride a trail, that there are a few required rock crossings that are a bit bumpy and abrupt, compared to the greens I rode in the northwest side of Three Peaks and other areas.

      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

      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!
