Hidden Canyon North Trail
The Hidden Canyon North trail is found on the Blue Hills Road, 18 miles

playgrounds. This is a great place to cruise around and waste time! It's fun
even for beginning riders.

|End of the trail. The view into hidden canyon is,
well, a jaw-dropper. On the way back, we pop over a ridge onto another rolling
slickrock playground hundreds of yards wide and a mile long. The whole loop is
around 7.5 miles, low-intermediate technical difficulty and moderate-to-novice aerobic
over the depths of Hidden Canyon. April 5, 1998 by Bruce Argyle, Canon A-1, 55 mm
