Trail Description
About this trail
Ascending to the rim of the Markagunt plateau you are treated with some bumpy, heart pounding descents that will bring you to a double track road. From here you will cross over the road, picking the single track back up in a forested meadow to great views overlooking red rock and a lake. You will see signs for the Left Fork, on your right and the Right Fork on your left. Taking the trail on your left (drainages are named from the bottom up), you will find some technical single track with a few rocky sections, weaving you through a spectacular Aspen forest. Continue this winding descent through the forest east until it turns into double-track road. Do not be lulled into thinking that the fun is over. The next 5 miles of double-track are just as fun and challenging. Riding the Bunker Creek Road at the "Y" follow the signs for Panguitch Lake, until you come to highway 143. Using caution go left on the highway for about a half mile where you will see the burger place on your right. Have a burger and tell them your name and they'll call Georg's for your pick up.

Q: Is this a one-direction, downhill specific trail or do most people just not want to try to climb it and do an out-and-back? -Guest

Review: Its a good trail. there is a fair amount of up hill to deal with but the down hill sections are great fun. lots of Aspin trail riding. the trails are a bit loose which hinder speed a bit.

Review: Going down? Make sure your brakes work, well. Fassst and fun flying past aspen and birch trees with some high speed rollers on the descent. A real blast. Shuttle required.
