Flume Trail  (Ephraim Canyon)
The Flume Trail in lower Ephraim Canyon follows an abandoned water-transport path around the foothills of Bald Mountain, then plunges steeply to the valley floor. It's 2.7 miles in length. After a fairly flat mile and a half, it plunges 700 vertical feet over one mile. It should be consider a downhill-only route. The steepness of the drop from the mountain requires advanced or at least solid upper-intermediate technical skill. Most of the trail is smooth with a few short tech challenges. The trail can be shuttled via the Ephraim Canyon road, or you can pedal up the road for a 5.0 mile loop ride. The riding season for this trail is May through October.

Getting there:  On US-89 in Ephraim, go to 400 south and turn east towards the mountains. At 300 East, turn right. You're on state road 29, the Ephraim Canyon Road. After 0.6 miles, the road turns 90 degrees left. Go 0.8 miles to (I think) 920 East and turn right. At the gate where the road becomes a "private driveway" (which, BTW is your return path), park on the west side of the road. Begin the ride by backtracking north on the paved road.
