Scout Camp Loop Trail
The Scout Camp Loop is a high-altitude singletrack that starts in Brian Head and loops through the Scout Camp lower in the canyon. Length is about 9 miles, depending on the route you take back. It's an upper-intermediate technical trail, with some slightly steep and rough descents and some loose trail surface on turns. Due to the altitude (10,000 feet), it would be rated strenuous aerobic. Total altitude change is 1000 feet. This is a good trail that, unfortunately, has been mauled by cabin construction and logging. But it's still worth doing.
