Wanted to try a new trail today, so went up Big Cottonwood to Mill B North Trail.  Could tell pretty soon this was not a widely used trail past the first 1.5 miles.  It soon became bushwacking and getting covered with hundreds of wispy spider webs.  Fun anyway to explore a new area.  So the first 3.5 was mostly hiking  for that reason and the relatively steep grade as you climb about 2500 feet over that distance.  It eventually is supposed to hook into Desolation trail but the map said I should have hit it about 3 miles in and at 3.5 no sight of it yet.  So overgrown at times couldnt see my feet as the bushes came to waist area.

Beautiful views across the canyon though and some fun meadow areas to go through.  Didnt see a soul the whole time.  Ran as possible all the way down.  Slowest mile 23, Fastest 9 or so.  Fun quad busting day.
