Pot Hollow  (Little Deer Creek Loop)
The Pot Hollow trail is a short singletrack descent from Pole Line Pass into the Little Deer Creek valley. Intermediate riders should do the short loop, described elsewhere. Pot Hollow via the East Side is an extremely difficult 18.7-mile ride, 23.7 if you start from Cascade Springs. There will be 2900 hundred vertical of climbing. The steep and technical spots on the East Side Ridge Trail will beat you up. Done as described below, you can expect some short push-a-bike uphills and some spooky mountain-surfing steep downhills.

Getting there:  Drive to the top of the Alpine Loop, either from the North Fork of Provo Canyon (past Sundance and Aspen Grove) or from American Fork Canyon. Just 1/4 mile east of the summit, turn east on Road 24 (Cascade Scenic Drive). Drive 7 miles. Just before Cascade Springs, the paved road takes a hard right turn. Turn left onto a gravel road here, labeled "Wasatch Mountain State Park" and "Little Deer Creek Campground." Drive uphill 2.5 miles to the fork in the road. You can park at the side of the road and start the ride here, or proceed straight to Little Deer Creek Campground (fee required) and start the ride there.
