Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade describes the potential consequences of falling or slipping off the path.
Low Exposure: The path is on completely flat land and potential injury is limited to falling over.
Medium Exposure: The trail contains some obstacles such as outcroppings and rock which could cause injury.
High Exposure: Some trail sections have exposed ledges or steep ascents/descents where falling could cause serious injury.
Extreme Exposure: Some trail sections are extreme exposed where falling will almost certainly result in serious injury or death.
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.
