Rush Trail

  1. 1

Overview

Rush Trail has multiple loops and alternate or access trails, for a total of 4.85 miles of mountain biking fun within Corner Canyon. Rush Trail includes the sections Rush – Fly By Night, Rush Limelight, Rush – The Trees, and the 0.05 mile doubletrack Rush Access section. Some mountain biking sites also refer to sections of the trail as “Rush Beginner” or “Rush Green.” 

Rush Trail – The main Rush Trail is 3.5 miles in length, descending 1150 vertical feet from the Peak View trailhead on Traverse Ridge (altitude 5900 feet). The newer alignment bypasses an up-and-down section called The Trees to offer a more continuous downhill. If you ride "Classic Rush" with the detour through The Trees, you'll bypass 0.3 miles of "official" Rush for 1.0 mile of flatter riding, making your total 4.2 miles.

Rush – The Trees. At mile 0.4 from the top, you'll reach a trail fork. In 2013, a new steeper route was cut, bypassing a longer but not-always-downhill section. The new route to your left is 0.3 miles, the bypassed trail is 1.0 mile. The bypassed trail has been renamed The Trees. If you take this "classic" route, you'll do some pedaling, but will be rewarded with distance and views. Add 0.7 miles to ride mileage if you rode The Trees.

Rush – Fly By Night. You can drop into The Trees from Brock's trail. The connector is called Fly By Night and is only about 100 yards long. When climbing, it's on the right, about 0.2 miles from where Brock's forks away from Canyon Hollow. (When descending from Peak View on Brock's, Fly By Night is at mile 0.3 from the trailhead on your left.) As you hit The Trees, turn to the right to align with the one-way riding direction. Keep straight when you join the main Rush downhill trail 0.6 miles later.

Rush – Limelight. The portion below the Bonneville Shoreline Trail (BST) is called Rush Limelight, a 1.09 mile section that starts at mile 2.5. After dipping through a little (often dry) creek, cross the BST to the Rush Limelight trail. 

Other Notes: This trail crosses several multi-use trails, and bikers must yield to other users. Hikers, dogs, and horses are not allowed. No uphill traffic allowed of any kind. Restrooms located at Andy Ballard Arena and the Peak View Trailhead (at the top of the trail).
