Note: I will be adding photos to all Brian Head related pages in spring 2008 when the mountain biking park re-opens.
This is considered the premier downhill route at Brian Head Mountain Bike Park. It is rated as "intermediate to advanced", experienced bikers will probably consider it lots of fun, but fairly tame. To me, advanced means that you could potentially alter the path your life is taking if you don't make a specific turn. This trail has a lot of nice single track with quick, swoopy corners.
I have run into a few Las Vegans that consider this trail to be one of their favorites - which according to the trail description below, is also true of locals.

Intermediate to Advanced – 4.5 Miles
Heading north as you get off the chairlift, this trail starts out rough, as you roll your way just beneath the 500-foot lichen covered cliffs of the Brian Head Peak. Eventually it turns back and heads for the trees, near Chair 5. From here it takes on a new character. With tabletop jumps, banked turns, and rollers the rest of the way down! This section of the Timberline trail is where our down hill races occur, and is a favorite of the locals.
Here is a map of the route. Free maps are also available on-site.
