To access the trail, take I-15 exit 5 towards Dixie Drive for about 2 miles until you reach Canyon Drive. Follow it to a paved road where you’ll turn right and reach several parking areas. If you continue through the parking areas and up the main dirt road for about a mille, you should find the Gap Trailhead located at the North end of the trail. Another access point is at the southern end of the trail through the Bloomington Trailhead.
One of the most acclaimed rides in all of Utah, bikers at all levels can enjoy a ride on the Bear Claw Poppy Trail. Enjoy a varied terrain, ranging from the Fingers of Fate to the Acid Drops to a super fun downhill-only section to finish the ride. The best part is, no matter what level you’re at, along the trail are several alternate routes suitable for all levels. For example, the bottom half of the trail, starting at Navajo Dr., is rated easy to moderate, and the top (from Clavicle hill to the Three Fingers of Death) is rated easy to difficult. Another plus: dogs are allowed if they stay on a leash.
Word of warning, the Bear Claw Poppy Trail is a directional trail so be sure to follow the directional signs to avoid collisions. Also, it’s best to take two cars, leaving one parked at either end unless you intend to bike or hike the whole trail out and back.
