Features -none-

There's often snow at higher elevations until mid-April. The trails are bordered in parts by private land, particularly if you join the North Canyon trail.

Overview

This is a very popular out-and-back ride, for good reason. It's full of smooth buff singletrack out of the city, with fast, flowy turns coming back down. Its steady, light-to-moderate climbing the whole way up to Rudy's Flat, with some minor technical sections in the upper half.

Need to Know

Watch out for heavy hiker traffic in the lower sections, particularly on weekends.

Description

Park at the top of E 1800 S in Bountiful. If the lot is full, park down below on the side of 1800 S. Follow the trail across the bridge near the parking lot and begin to climb east. It's a gentle 3.5 mile climb on smooth singletrack to Elephant Rock, where there's a bench and a nice overlook.

From here, there's significantly less foot traffic as you continue up another 2.9 miles to Rudy's flat. The trail is slightly more technical to the top, but nothing too daunting. There is a divergence of trails here, and some campsite relics.

If you start going back downhill (into North Canyon) you've gone too far. Enjoy the way down, watch for front-wheel washout in some of the loose duff on a few of the tighter switchbacks.

Too many hikers - blind corners. A guy riding without a helmet smashed into me head-on while he was descending, and couldn't slow his speed in time.

Nice shaded trail. Great singletrack with a few obstacles. Hiker traffic to inc dogs. Reminds me of dog lake trail but more shaded. 6.8mi

Good long climb for a solid decent. Very nice views where you break through the trees. Lots of brush in places made for a skinny trail up high. 12.7mi — 1h 51m
