Description

This trail begins off of Wildwood Dr. just after it crosses Big Chico Creek. It will pass through parking area B, where it links up with North Rim Trail and shortly splits off to the right. It climbs through the park past Horseshoe Lake, where riders can split off onto Lower Trail or ride Upper Trail to the left.

The trail meanders through the northern part of Upper Park, beholding a few fun technical features such as Toilet Bowl (short steep drop and 90 degree bank right... be careful not to fall in!), and a fun climb up some exposed slickrock. There's an option for bailing out onto Lower Trail and the park road in several spots along the way.

The trail ends where at the B Trail terminus, where riders can take the park road further to cross Big Chico Creek over to the south side and ride some more technical features and trails, or bomb back toward the park entrance. Riders can also make a loop with Lower Trail.
