I'm a newbie when it comes to DH, so this review would be a warning to anyone who hasn't done DH before and is thinking about this trail. It's dangerious. I totally wrecked on it the first time down and had to walk my bike down just about every steep part because i was such a sissy. Get protective gear if you decide to do this, you will thank me. There arn't as many jumps as people would say there were, only one at the end that I saw. I'll attempt it next summer because I've just put on some DH rims and a nicer fork. I've also purchased some protective gear (shin gards and pressure suit). This was a way fun trail, don't get me wrong, it was so fun I want to master it this summer, I just wasn't ready before.

drive to the Bountiful "B" then take the dirt road (car or bike) up to the "Buckland Oakridge trail" and start there. about 1/4 the way down the DH trail jets off the road and to the left, keep a eye out for it our you'll just be riding a atv trail all day.

This mountain is littered with trails - it's a motorcycle park - most trails on the lower mountain are 4 wd roads and 4 wheeler trails all downhill. all the trails from the top of the mountain are single track. All the trails are legal for bikes - be prepared as these are full mountain rides with wild life,motercycles and constant dangers. experienced rides only

Customer Service

drive to the top and find a trail

a fun trail with a couple of more challenging sections within the first mile of descent. Unlike most typical downhill trails, the remainder of this trail is fast with very few turns. About 2 miles from the bottom is a nice rock garden section. Be sure to have extra tubes. Watch for ascending 4-wheel drives. Allow 1 hour for bike ride up skyline to the trailhead. 10-15 minutes down maximum.

Customer Service

Take skyline road for about 8 miles up. Look for trailhead sign on the right hand side of the road.

A fun fast downhill trail, some mild drop offs near the top section, for the first 2 miles. A nice rock garden section toward the bottom portion of the trail. Have an extra tube for sure! This is a very fast downhill trail with very few turns. This trail is very diverse for all levels of riders. If you bike up, allow 1 hour plus to the top. Takes only 10-15 minutes down.

Customer Service

Take skyline drive up the mountain from the B about 7-8 miles up. Look for the Buckland ridge trailhead sign on your right hand side.

Fast trail recommended for downhillers. A few loose rocky sections that will dent your downtube. Stay left at the intersections for the best ride. Some small drops. The singletrack turnoff near the end is incredible trail (tough to find unless you've done it before). One of the funnest dh rides around! Keep your momentum up at the bottom and you'll be surprised how much air you get.

Customer Service

I love this trail. This trail is very challenging and having the right gear is recommended. Fun Downhill trail, one of the best around. Take extreme caution on this trail and look out for me and my friends--we're the bikers that go really fast!!

Customer Service

Find the big "B" on the mountainside and drive in that direction, once you reached the "B" follow the dirt road up for about 7-8 miles until you reached the "buckland ridge trail" sign. NOTE: PASS BUCKLAND FLATS CAMPGROUND.
