Archie's Loop Trail, a 2.2 mile stretch of mountain biking/hiking trail, recently opened up totally new country. The intermediate-level trail runs from Scott's Pond loop to connect with the Boneyard loop about 1/2 mile from the base. Panoramas from this trail are unsurpassed. From a single vantage point, you have a clear view of Mt. Timpanogos, Provo Peak, Cascade Peak, Provo Canyon, North Fork Canyon, Deer Creek Reservoir, and the Heber valley.

Ride Ray's Lift to the Drive Station. Beginning at #3, ride down Sunnyside Road past #7, and around the corner to the intersection at #10. Make a 180-degree bend to the lower road and follow it to #4 (just before Flathead Lift). Turn left, then bear left again at #5. Follow the old logging road to #6 and bear right onto the single track.
Descending through the meadow, you will eventually come to #31. Turn left onto Archieís Loop. It takes you through the maples and across the south-facing slope to intercept the ridgeline overlooking North Fork Canyon. Continue around to the north-facing sideway above the road, and ride through the stands of old-growth forest until you connect with the Boneyard Loop at #30. Turn right and follow this loop back to the paved maintenance road at #27. Turn right again and descend to the base. Please watch for cars on this section, and be very careful on the horseshoe bend at the bottom.
