Hike and Mountain Bike

This isn't quite as much mountain biking as it is an easy downhill bike ride. The whole trail is paved. One of the best ways to do it is to take two vehicles and park one at Will's Canyon Stop and take the bikes and riders in the other vehicle and park it at Vivian Park. Then ride the trail down. If you want a little more of a challenge, you can also park at the the mouth of the canyon and ride up and back. It's often pretty congested through the section by Bridal Veil Falls so you'll likely need to walk your bikes through there. All told, it's about a 6 mile trail between Vivian Park and the mouth of the canyon. There's plenty of stuff to do and see as you pass a couple waterfalls and even a place to feed the fish.

Never modify trail features. Ride trails when they're dry enough that you won't leave ruts. Speak up when you see others on the trail and always yield to hikers, horses, and others coming uphill. Always ride on the established trail.
