Favorite Trails: Hmm........
There was some debate as to what we would ride for our last day. Thunder Mtn had been suggested and was a popular choice, however it was a long drive from Cedar City and no one really wanted to get up early after our ride the day before. Even one of the epic trails around Brian Head seemed too much. In the end, we settled on some odd-man-out shuttles of C Trail, which drops from the mountains 2300 ft down to Cedar City in 4.5 miles.

This trail was switchback city and fairly loose/rocky in parts. Fortunately the fact we rode it a few times gave us some familiarity and our speed seemed to increase on each run.

Looking down on our base for 5 days, Cedar City

And the mountains just to the north east

The trail was interspersed with bits of red dirt/rock which made for some cool visuals

More switchbacks, that come up on you faster than you'd expect



It was getting hot shortly after noon so we called it quits to pack up and hit the showers.

On the way back we passed our restaurant of choice from Day 1, Godfathers Pizza. But it would seem that following Stang's complaint to the manager that the spicy pizza was not hot enough, they had relinquished their great name out of embarrassment to become simply "Pizza" :lol: .

Man that trail ended up being fun. Run one I though "eh, it's ok" then on run two and three as we were flying down it just barely in control I though "Ok, it's definately fun now that I know it".

Damn did my hands hurt that first run though. Wow it was painful. I guess 5 days of riding non-stop and a 30+ miler the day before will do that to you. :mrgreen:
