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!!

Customer Service

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.

The trail is about 3 miles long, starting at the Mormon Quarry Parking lot. It includes approximately 900feet of elevation gain over the 3 miles. The trail is mostly singletrack over sand, rocks, and more rocks. There are a number of buried water pipes that cross the trail, giving quite a number of jumps.

The climb is a pain in the thighs, butt, and arms. Many of the climbs are through loose rock and the buried pipes.

As the previous reviewer stated, it's a great afterwork cardiovascular workout, with a exciting downhill return to your car.

Bring lots of water and a powerbar or two. You'll need it.

Could be a screaming downhill, but it is really busy with people so you can's safely open it up and let it rip. Please be courteous. The trail is currently under review for closure on an every other day basis. Please don't screw it up for the rest of us.

Rattlesnake is the most technical descent on this trail right before the switchbacks towards the end. If you've got a duallie, it'll probably just be a lot of fun, but for those of you on hardtails, cleaning this section will make you feel like superman. Lots of boulders and drops- pick your line carefully!

Good uphill with some rocky technical sections that require more grunt than ability, beautiful ride but with the rocky sections on the way down bring first aid stuff and a fully suspended bike!
P.S. go on a week day after work it's pretty deserted. otherwise watch out for hikers!

Heavy use on the weekends is the only drawback to this otherwise fun ride. Some rocky sections to challenge the hard-core types, interspersed with some smooth singletrack. The trail ends across the river from the ruins of an old church dating back to the mining days of the canyon before the turn of the century. There's even a stream you can ride through about 2/3 the way up.

Customer Service

Start at the parking lot at the Temple Quarry trailhead. take a minute to walk the paved path and soak up some history.

Not too bad, not too great either. Fun but too short. Good if you live nearby but don't drive more than fifteen minutes for it. Chances are if you're going that far and coming from the north you're going to pass Millcreek - ride the pipeline instead if you need a quickie.

Most of the trail is wide and rocky. With a good cardio base the ascent is easy enough but before that it can seem really technical. It's not lengthy but I think it has a lot to offer from the standpoint of variety and a pleasant envirn. You hear a creek the whole way up and have decent tree coverage to boot. Visibility is good on the way down so you can open up a bit despite the traffic. It used to have really nice, sailing jumps strewn all the way down, but they've worn down considerably over the last two seasons. Here and there you can still catch some good air.
