A short, fun segment overlooking Red Butte Gardens and Salt Lake City.

Description

This trail is a more enjoyable alternative to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail below. You'll find fun little rock features and red dirt on this quick, slightly rocky segment between the Natural History Museum of Utah and Red Butte Canyon.

Riders will also get good views of the city and Red Butte Gardens on this mini downhill trail.

The trail is fairly susceptible to erosion so don't ride it when muddy. It's also frequented by runners and hikers, so practice good trail etiquette.

Trail is heavily eroded. Large loose rocks through. Mostly hike-a-bike.
