Summary:
This trail has phenomenal potential if the local mtb community cared about its upkeep. I was there on the summer solstice of 2008 and after reading, hearing and seeing photos of Brain Head, Utah I had much excitement. Set out for the Scout Camp Loop which is easy to navigate the start as in the various books and off I went. Went past a big sign about the Brian Head Mountain Bike Park and took the manditory picture of a bad Superfly next to it and the rest was downhill, figuratively. I rode for about a mile or so and then the downed trees became more numerous until I became so bummed with unclipping for the next down tree/trees. I must have gotten off over forty times for fallen trees in the trail. With no chainsaw in the pack, forget this ride. I don't think the weevle infestation, nor snow downed this many trees in one year. So save your time and ride something you don't need to get off your bike each 30 seconds for.

Summary:
Hello Kids! I hope you all are being good this year, you better be because I am watching you. Santa is having fun on his summer sled during the off season. My reindeer wants to stay in shape for the winter too. My sled has four wheels and shocks on them and it is lot of fun. I thought the trail was really fun and technical. We were having so much fun and we were going so fast until Comet fell and bruised his side and sprained his hoof. He's O.K. now. Then we flew off and Rudolf and Blixon started complaining because they wanted to go more. We had fun anyway.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Whistler, Canada. Switzerland, New Zealand, Norway, Mount Snow, California. China, Australia, and Kenya. All the trails there were a lot of fun!

Summary:
The singletrack section of this trail is great. But unfortunately, if you follow a guidebook, you wind up spending more time lost than riding. Bailing onto the Town Trail makes it a decent loop, with only 1.5 miles of gravel road for a 9-mile ride. Still wouldn't be among my first 3 choices at Brian Head -- I'd go with Lowder Ponds, Dark Hollow, and Bunker Creek first.

Recommended Route:
Park where Bear Flat Road leaves U-14. Grind straight up the gravel road. Ignore the warning signs, and pick your way through the road construction at 1 mile. You may need to hoof around a rock-pile or two. Singletrack starts at 1.6, dumps into logging area 0.2 miles later. Turn downhill, then right on the next logging road. Intercept Dark Hollow Trail 0.25 miles later and proceed with singletrack to Scout Camp, turning uphill to find singletrack again at fire break. At mile 6.9, left turn in meadow doesn't exist any more. Go right, then up the fire break and drop down the Mosquito connector to the Town Trail at mile 7.4. Head up the canyon on Town Trail back to intersection of Bear Flat and U-14.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lowder Ponds - nice sampler of high-alpine (11,000 feet), forested singletrack downhill, and climbing.

Summary:
First the good news. This is one great trail in a network of great trails.
Now the bad news. This area has been devasted by logging, subdivision developement, and lack of trail maintenance. Due to the subdivision work you will never find the trail start. On your way back in you will lose your way in devasted meadows and new roads. Maybe at some point in the future it will come back but for now this trail is GONE!

Recommended Route:
The preferred way to ride this trail is in the CCW direction. Start by going up Bear Flat Road, then left at Steam Engine Meadow and finally picking up the trail in the subdivision.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Dark Hollow is affected by this same logging operation.
