Getting there:
Take the I-15 Lehi Main Street exit and turn west. Continue west on SR-73, crossing Redwood Road (11600 West). Continue westbound uphill. Just after climbing the hill, turn left at the stop light onto The Ranches Parkway. At Pony Express Parkway, turn right. The road will veer a bit south (left), then back west (right). Immediately turn left to the Hidden Canyon road. Find a place to park to take the singletrack lariat. If you're driving to the loop, keep generally right and southbound at all road forks, staying just below the slope of the hill on your left. When you reach the broad valley and see a bunch of competing road forks, you're there.
To start from the bike park, stay on Ranches Parkway as it narrows and begins to wind around. When you come to a T intersection at the end of The Ranches Parkway, turn right on Golden Eagle Road. Drive about 1/3 mile and watch for the trail kiosk on your left. Park by the trail kiosk and begin your ride by climbing up the trail heading south.

Trail connections, alignments and conditions will change. Use this guide at your own risk.
