Summary:
Perfect ride, you can park at the smiths on 9400 and go up the creek behind the woodchuck neighborhood cross at la caile and then regain on the double track at the chain up on north little cottonwood road... to the FS park and ride. it ads a few miles on to the trail. Also many side spur routes. DO NOT PARK AT THE POWER PLANT, MURRAY CITY WILL TOW YOUR CAR DO NOT PARK AT WASATACH RESORT, ITS PRIVATE PROPERTY AND BAD FORM. ALSO DO NOT PARK AT THE SMALL GARAGE MID CANYON, UDOT WILL TOW YOUR CAR. Park at the FS lot!!

Recommended Route:
Go up the main trail, down snake alley before the small bridge go up and to the right, DHville is on the sidelines of the trail... DO not build any more stunts, that is why the FS put all the trees and closed the Tanners area. DO not put any ladders, boards, dirt mounds on the trail. Keep off the pipe or we will loose our privileges on the private land.

Summary:
Alex (post below), what is your freaking problem??? QUOTE: (i.e. make the body armor freaks put a foot down.) It's people like you who make trail conflicts a problem. People like you don't let horses by and force people off the trail just so you can keep your heart rate 'optimal'. You give mountain bikers a bad name. Do you think behaving this way will make the shuttlers more inclined to stop and let you continue climbing? I agree with you on the yield to climbing issue, but geez, this is no way to fix the problem. Furthermore, assuming that every armor-clad DHer is a "freak" or has "low brain power" is about the most idiotic thing I've ever heard. I climb my 40-lb. bike to the top, and next time I'm coming down after working my butt off to get there, I'm going to run your skinny tires right off the trail.

Recommended Route:

Summary:
The first 500 yards are loose gravel, after the water station is where it starts to get fun.Head up the hill past all three wooden bridges, after the 3rd,jump the big ass water pipe and keep going.At about 3/4 mile it opens up with three trails possible, GO STRAIGHT.The old Alta Trading post is another 1/2 mile through some great technical areas and ends at an old crumbling stone building on the opposite side of the river.Watch out for the hikers,and the person going up hill does have the right of way.I ride this at lease twice a week and it is stll my favorite, short ride.

Recommended Route:
Unpack at the Temple Quary Trail head,or below the little cottonwood sign. Follow the trail,beside the paved hiking trail,go all the way to the old Alta Trading post.Great burn for a 1 hour ride.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Yellow Canyon, Wasatch Crest, Bobsled, and if you have any Kahunas try Gooseberry.
