A fun, switchbacked descent from Potato Hill down to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail

Description

This is a classic, smooth descent that connects Ann's Trail to the BST: Flight Park to Mike Weir (Bonneville Shoreline Trail). There are a couple of rocky sections, but for the most part the singletrack is well maintained and smooth, with an easy grade all the way down (or up). From the Potato Hill Trailhead, head to the left (west), and you'll catch this trail pretty quickly, and it almost immediately starts descending on a pretty open hillside (not much in the way of trees or vegetation). The trail gives some decent views of the Salt Lake Valley and the surrounding mountains since it is pretty open.
