Trail shared by Kevin Christopherson

A great little lollipop loop worth adding to Barrel Roll.

Description

This is a very nice addition to the Barrel Roll Trail. It is a little more difficult and adds more climbing, but one of my favorite trails out of the Cove Wash trailhead. There are a few sections that I walk near the top of the loop, but everything else is rideable. The red rock views are some of the best in Southern Utah. Good workout climbing and fun ride down. Precipice makes a good alternative to access Sidewinder from the parking lot. I like to skip the technical parts of barrel roll on my ride back from the top by taking the Illusion Connector trail.

Singletrack not all that crazy. Some fun places to session close to the trailhead of suicidal tendencies. 1.7mi
