Description

Stump Hollow is a steep, but flowing run. The steep aspect does make for a tough climb, but the smooth downhill is a riot. The parking lot for this ride is on the corner of the Highway and the turn off for Beaver Mountain, and Beaver Creek. Turn left at the Beaver Mt. road and immediately turn right into the dirt parking lot on the right.

Get on your bike, cross the street and turn right down the canyon. The trail takes off on your left into the trees. Ascending this trail is a hard climb with a few technical areas. The climb is consistent through the trail, so careful not to burn yourself out. The first part will wander through thick trees for several miles and lead you to the start of switchbacks. These provide a platform for a challenging climb.

From here on out you have beautiful views as the trail looks down into meadows and Logan canyon. Keep ascending until you reach a point locals have named Pride Rock. You'll see the rock outcropping on your right after doing the last brutal climb through some loose terrain.

The trail flattens out at the top here right next to Pride Rock. You have the option of turning around, or continuing on into the Sinks. Past Pride Rock the trail lightens up quite a bit. There are still a few tricky sections, but the majority of your climbing is done. After a few miles you'll descend into a huge meadow. This area is known as the Sinks. Continue on the singletrack until you reach the cairn (pile) of rocks. This is the usual turn around point, or you have the option of going to make a loop through Burnt Fork, Or Turkey Trail.

After you climb back out of the Sinks, you have a few miles of fast and flowy. The trail is skinny, so careful not to slip off the left side down the hill. After you pass Pride Rock the trail gets steep and fast. Pedaling is rarely needed coming down the rest of the way. Once you start, watch for the switchbacks. You'll see that one of the corners is notorious for being blown out. The bushes are laid flat from all the bikes running out off the trail. Watch for this corner. The last mile of trail has kickers set up every hundred yards or so. The landings and takeoffs for these are relatively nice, so go ahead and launch off them. Come back out the same way, and cross the street to get back to your car.

The fast, flowy section at the top of Stump Hollow is sure to bring smiles.
