Mountain Biking Corkscrew

#169 of 693 mountain bike trails in Utah

Awesome singletrack trail. Trail is a cherry stem design that leaves from the west end of the parking area.

The trail should be ridden clockwise. You will follow a shallow but sustained climb up a wash (excluding one

short steep section). After reaching the top of the steep portion of trail, you will cross the road and rejoin

the singletrack/doubletrack. This will continue to the top of the plateau and will abruptly turn around and

head down the swoopy downhill before rejoining the cherry stem.

This is a great trail and should be on the repertoire for those coming up to Vernal

    This is the longer of the two LaPointe loops. Definitely do this one clockwise. The trail is mostly beginner friendly, but an advanced rider will have a good time trying to break warp speed on the descent while dodging junipers.
