“A fun trail with a mixture of bench cut singletrack through the woods and the Perrin Flow trails.”— Rick Plite
Family Friendly Playground, picnic area and restroom facilities at the main parking lot.
The counter-clockwise (Red Arrows) direction begins with a narrow bench cut around a knob in the park then follows the cinder hiking path to use the bridge over Mill Creek. The next couple sections include more narrow bench cut along Mill Creek and on a climb to get up to some old orchards and farm fields. The trail follows the perimeter of a couple corn fields before the Wild Onion which takes you into some towering beech trees and some twisty climbs and descents.
You then are heading back out into the corn, heading down hill where you'll then cross Mill Creek and head to the OxBow Run. Staring in the pines with a section of bench cut you loop by the creek and start the climb out. The Mattkinac bridge and the Utah 2 bridge add some variety to a beautiful steep ridge line with great views of Mill Creek.
At the top of the ridge you pop in and out of the woods as you head back into the the open again where you can circuit the Perrin Flow Trails. (1 up line and 3 downhills). The downhills lines are named after the Perrin IPA series, starting with the easiest, "No Problems", more difficult, "98 Problems", to the most difficult, "Lostsa' Problems". Table tops, rollers, jumps, and berms are what these lines are all about. The Flow Trails where built by donations from the Perrin Brewing Company and the WMMBA.
The trail finishes up by returning along the bluffs of Mill Creek with some interesting bench cuts and bridge work. When the wildflowers are in bloom, it is a wonderful finish to a great ride.
