Update

This trail connects the Hidden Lake parking lot with the Brim Trail. Fun to ride in both directions!

Description

The trail crew have been working this trail over and have made some great improvements. This is a great way to park away from the Brim trailhead, but still be able to enjoy the area. The trail has been rerouted to bypass the huge, nasty hill climb.

This is a great option when riding the Powder Mountain area and accessing the Brim Trail. Just like all of the trails in this area, the views are amazing and the scenery throughout the ride is varied and beautiful.

You can definitely ride in both directions... Just be courteous for riders grinding their way up the trail and let them keep working their way up.

Start off at the Hidden Lake lift parking lot and work your way down to the Sunrise Poma lift where you'll ride over to the singletrack where the fun will begin. The trail was excavated the summer of 2015, so at the time of this post, it needs more bike traffic.

The trail starts out with a dirt road and a winter cat track that accesses the Poma lift. Don't let yourself be disappointing because it gets better past the Sunrise lift. Once you get on the singletrack it is a nice ride down to the Brim Trail.

As you descend the Connector trail you'll pass through some areas where Powder Mountain did some clearing for a new run so watch out for the rough "wood chips" on the trail. Watch to make sure that you don't flip a branch into your spokes. Oh, and there is a big jump at the mid point in the ride that it totally optional...BIG jump :)

As you ride down the trail keep your eye out for the moose and an occasional deer.

Remember...what goes down must go up...it is a bit of a grind coming out so prepare your legs and lungs accordingly.
