Description

This trail starts with tight narrow switchbacks that don't seem to be ridden very often - probably because you are above the bottom of John's Trail. This section is difficult and not worth climbing up unless you need to ride every inch of it.

Where it hits John's Trail, it becomes somewhat rocky for a while and merits the black diamond rating, and is either interesting or irritating, depending on your skill level. But then it opens up and gets easier and easier all the way down. There are many intersections but they're all well marked.

As you get near the bottom, it becomes a dirt road with great views of the town of Park City.

You'll come across several of the historic towers that carried mining ore down from the mountain.
