    First Time to Brian Head Utah

    So I'm heading up to ride brian head this friday for the first time ever. Which trails do you all recommend I do. I'm definitely doing timberline, but are there any other trails that aren't balls to the wall, but still have some freestyle features. I'd rather kick ass on an intermediate trail and have a whole load of fun that get my ass kicked on an advanced trail that I don't know how to ride. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    If you tire of the lift accessed stuff - they have some excellent downcountry shuttle trails, I recommend Dark Hollow - very well suited for a gravity bike, a commericial shuttle service is available, but much better if you can hook up with someone and make multiple runs.

    I rode most of them last year. Dark Hollow was def my favorite. Lift access stuff was fun as well.

    Since it's a ski resort they don't close the lifts for winter.

    Is the shuttle for the dark hollow (and other off mountain trails) paid for by the lift ticket the mountain sells?

    Shuttle is a separate fee from the lift but you do get a 1 free lift w/ the purchase of a shuttle. There is camping pretty much in town w/ pit toilets or you camp camp about 5miles away at Ceder Breaks if you are into showers and that sort of thing.

    Good campspots (no facilities) can be found off the forest service road that Dark Hollow finished on (not sure the road number - maybe ten miles downhill from Brians Head).
