Mud Flats Loop Willow Creek, Little Cottonwood Creek
This ride is a nice 9.4-mile loop with 4.5 miles of singletrack. The climbing rate is fairly gentle and there's nothing particularly technical. This is a good ride for early-intermediate riders, but will also satisfy more advanced mountain bikers. This is a nice ride with a shady singletrack climb up the canyon along Willow Creek. There's a fast ride along a dirt-road connector, then a singletrack descent down Little Cottonwood Creek to the trailhead. The loop starts at an altitude of 5500 feet, climbing to 6850. Total climbing will be around 1400 feet.
