|Big Spring Hollow Trail
This loop is a short but sweet singletrack in the South Fork of Provo Canyon. At a fairly low altitude for an alpine trail (5700 feet), this trail opens in late spring for early-season riding. The loop ride is 3.5 miles of intermediate technical singletrack, with an altitude gain of 750 feet. Connects to Cascade Saddle trail and Windy Pass (Great Western) trail.
