Ireland and Blackbird Trail Loop, Timpanogos Foothills
The Ireland trail runs approximately north-south on the western edge of the Timpanogos footills bench area. It can serve as a climbing or descending route. This ride climbs Ireland to Crank, which will be our connection over to the Blackbird Two trail for a descending loop. The ride has 600 vertical feet of climbing.
Trail connections, alignments and conditions will change. Use this guide at your own risk. UtahMountainBiking 2016

Orem Bench BST Trailhead:  Exit I-15 on Orem's 800 North and drive straight towards the mountains. At 800 East, turn left and drive north about 1 mile. Immediately past the fence at the uphill end of the cemetery, turn right (east) on Cascade Drive. Drive 1/2 mile then fork uphill before you approach the water treatment plant. Take two switchbacks up, passing the lower overflow parking, to the paved parking area with the bathroom. Your trail is right across from where the road entered the parking lot.
