Adventure Description

Speed, speed, and more speed. Stumpjumper is a high-velocity experience that is guaranteed to become one of your favorite trails. Deep, thick forests with rich undergrowth and hard-packed soil make this an unforgettable ride.

You'll want to park your car where the Santaquin Canyon Road ties into the main Nebo Loop since there is little to no parking farther down that road. However, it's a quick mile descent on the gravel road before you see the trailhead marker on your right. From there the trail steadily drops for miles. There aren’t any terribly technical sections, nor does the trail ever get too steep, making Stumpjumper readily rideable for riders of almost any skill level. That said, as you fly across high mountain meadows, wind through sprawling aspen groves, and dive into deep pine forests, you will find a few creek gaps, hips, and even some doubles built along the side of the trail should you want to push yourself a little.

After soaring down the mountain you’ll eventually come to the Pete Winward Road. Hang a right and there’s a quick pedal out to the parking area just off the Nebo Loop where your shuttle car should be waiting.
