Description

This trail connects you to the upper two loops of Deer Creek Canyon Park: Red Mesa and Plymouth Mountain. It's a steep 2.3 mile climb consisting of many waterbars, roots, and rock obstacles. About halfway up you'll encounter "The Wall", an eroded series of steep rock obstacles worthy of its name.

The mix of technical and flowing trail at Deer Creek Canyon makes for stupid fun riding!

The dreaded "wall". This thing is a beast. No pictures can capture the size and intensity.
