Trail Description
About this trail
Foothills Rim trails were completed by volunteers in June 2011. Thanks to all that helped.

This trail is a great addition to the Monolith trail system adding approx 10.35 more miles of intermidiate fast flowing technical singletrack loops and one out and back. Foothills Rim trail connects at three locations to the Monolith trails for an added 6-8 miles of riding.
Trail maps are currently being developed and will soon be posted by the BLM at the trailheads.

Review: Great additions to existing trail system. A little more technical than Monolith Gardens, but the scenery is more than worth the effort. A couple of the down hill runs are fast and flowing. Combine with Monolith Gardens trail.

Review: Primo singletrack, baby! This is a nice, relaxing workout with nice gentle climbs, smooth, flowing downhill and beautiful scenery. Wish I had time to go back again. Its the kind of track that gets better each time you ride it. DONT LEAVE VALUABLES in your car! I parked in the lot on a weekday morning and noticed at least four piles of broken car window glass, no doubt evidence of recent breakins!

Review: Very scenic riding on speedy single track. Lots of unique areas, especially around the north-western corner of the loop. Some fun techy spots, good flow overall. The one out-and-back is a blast both ways, but definitely not beginner friendly. Some challenging climbs up from Monolith Gardens that make for fun, fast descending in reverse. Lots of loop combo possibilities. Check it out!
