Trail Overview

The East Ridge Trail connects Ridge Trail to Pot Hollow. This is one of the more difficult trails in the American Fork system. Riding south to north, the trail starts off easy in a wooded section before breaking out into a field as you ride across the mountainside. On a clear day, there are great views of the valley from here. As you continue traversing the mountain, the trail gets narrower with a steep downhill to your right. Eventually you'll cross a scree field with large, loose, basketball-sized rocks and later a few sections with beachball-sized rocks embedded in the ground. This section can be tricky when wet. After this, there are a few tight downhill turns in a very deep section of the trail and another couple smaller rock gardens.

Difficulty

This is one of the more difficult trails in the area. The combination of loose and embedded large rocks on a narrow trail with exposure to steep downhills in some areas gives this one a higher rating.
