Another easy, graded trail with lots of switchbacks near the top of the Wasatch Crest.

Description

Blazing Saddle is a nice little singletrack that incorporates a lot of switchbacks to make for either a fun descent or a manageable climb to/from Wasatch Crest—overall a much better alternative to Thaynes Road in either direction.

From the top of the Crescent Lift, take 3 Candles to Keystone Trail to Shadow Lake Trail to Blazing Saddle for a technically easy, aerobically satisfying, abbreviated climb to Wasatch Crest.
