The Iron Bill Trail forks off the southern end of the RTS Loop near Kimball Junction in Park City, Utah. The RTS is very mellow, so if you are looking for a more strenuous climb with rocky technical sections, follow the markers up to Iron Bill. The views from the top are amazing and are the reward for the somewhat difficult climb. It is not the steepest pitch in the area, but some of the switchbacks are very rocky and technical. This trail is not ideal for beginners, but it gives people the chance to stay near Kimball and still get a ride with a bit of challenge. From the rocky lookout near the end of the trail you can also jump onto the Legacy Loop to make for a longer ride. The route from the lookout back to the car is for a 5-mile round-trip ride with almost 700 feet of elevatoin gain. Park at the RTS Loop Trailhead.
