Overview

See Snowbasin's rules and regulations.
Easiest way down from Needles Lodge to Earls Lodge. Excellent scenery through dozens of switchbacks on a mostly hard packed surface with occasional rocky section, loose rocks, and roots. Good mix of shade and sun.

Description

Follow the signs at several confluences and watch for traffic in both directions.

no need for a DH bike here. Lift access XC trails, still some peddling.
