This trail has everything: medium-distance swoopy sections, interminable lengths of baby heads, gnarly hills, rock gardens, riding through the actual stream, smooth sections of loamy soil, and motorcycles along the way. It's generally only traveled by motorcycles, but makes for an epic day long ride, with connections to Diamond Fork, Hobble Creek, and the Great Western Trail.

Access Info

From the top of Whiting/Mapleton Canyon, just follow the trail. From the East, join at the top of Kirkman Hollow trail.

 I have only gone up this trail, and going up is really tough. It's a lot of slipping and sliding on larger lose rocks, and some insane hike-a-bike uphills toward the end. If you are going to ride this, I would certainly rather do it the downhill direction.
