Potato Hill and Red Potato Trails -- The "Potato Bow Tie" ride
The Potato Hill trail extends from Traverse Mountain Road to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail (BST) near Coyote Hollow. It's only 1/2 mile in length, but offers nice views and connections between trails to create new riding options. It provides a nice start for riding the Draper Rim Loop (11.5 miles, 1500 vertical when you include the Potato Hill trail downhill to the BST at the start of the ride). The Red Potato Trail connects from the trailhead to the BST just east of Red Rocks. The Bow Tie figure 8 loop is a highly-recommended option on some of Draper's nicest trails.
