“Classic Wasatch singletrack.”— Justin Johnson
From Porter Fork, the trail is generally flat, with a slight grade leading west toward the valley and the final viewpoint. There are some short segments of brief climbing which can be walked. While the trail remains nearly level on the north side of the canyon, the canyon floor continues to descend sharply toward the valley. After Porter Fork, there are only two points connecting the Pipeline Trail to the canyon road: Church Fork and Rattlesnake Gulch, which are intermediate technical descents.
The trail itself is generally suitable for confident beginners. There are some segments with short climbs, and longer segments of loose rocky trail surfaces. In many areas at the western end, there is exposure to significant elevation which would best be avoided by anyone with a fear of heights.
The trail is extremely popular with hikers, runners, dog walkers, and bikers in the summer months. Be prepared to stop and yield.
