The Alexander Creek Trail is located in Parley’s Canyon near Mountain Dell golf course and rides to the Summit. This trail can be done as a downhill only with a car shuttle at the trailhead by the golf course and then drive to the top of the trail at the summit. If climbing is your bag, then you can start at the golf course and tackle the 5-mile 1500 foot climb and then turn around for the 5-miles of fun downhill you have earned.

the trail is pretty smooth with minor technical aspects to it. Some of the trail is in a canyon away from I-80 so you won’t see or hear the cars.
