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. It's steady, light-to-moderate climbing the whole way up to Rudy's Flat, with some minor technical sections in the upper half.
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.

Need to Know

Motorcycles can and do legally ride this trail, as well as the North Canyon connector.

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.

We did North Canyon up and Mueller down. Moderate technical spots on the way up and just giddy turns on the way down.

Trail is dry except at spring crossings. Trail is also covered with fallen leaves that hide rocks and roots. Ride was awesome! Oct 25, 2014
