The Little Cottonwood trail is a moderate 7 miles of rocky road that follows along the creek through some nice shady woods.

From the parking lot it follows some double open double track that then turns into a rocky old jeep road.

There are several stream crossings using well built bridges.

This trail sees a ton of traffic including mtn bikes so stay alert for the downhill traffic.
