Bunker Creek Trail
One of two epic downhills at Brian Head, the trail begins atop Brian Head Peak at 11,300 feet, and heads east to Panguitch Lake 3000 feet below. The trail is 12 miles long, and is done with a shuttle vehicle. (The bike shops in Brian Head can provide shuttle service for a small fee.) The trail has occasional gentle climbing, but is a fast and furious downhill cruise, intermediate technical.
