If you like to climb (read: abuse yourself), start at Rainbow Gardens in Ogden Canyon. If you like a descent, start at any of the Harrison Blvd offshoots or, for the full experience, Beus Canyon just south above the Dee Events Center in South Ogden. This trail is definitely technically advanced. I am a beginning rider but I'm stubborn, so I made it okay but it was slow-going. Definitely recommend for intermediate-advanced riders. The closer you are to Ogden Canyon, the more traffic (hikers, bikers, and dogs oh my) there is. Farther south the trail is much more technical and you'll have it to yourself. If you're headed south on the trail, be prepared to do some hike-a-bike-ing. Views are pretty nice. The trail is mostly exposed so wear sunblock! If you like smooth trails with few to no rocks, this is NOT for you!
