Sensei trail... and the status of Lehi's Traverse Mountain system
The Sensei trail is ready to ride, although there's nearby subdivision construction that complicates access. The page updates the status of the trail construction in this system.   Trail page...    October 2018.

The "Bruce Blues Band"
Those insane mountain biking songs on the UMB facebook page?   I've put the videos all together on our Goodies "Video" page on this website. And if you want the songs themselves, they're available as mp3s in our Goodies "Biker Blues" section.   November 2018.

New connector trail links Secret Sauce to Pushing Tin
After the flood destroyed the first 100 yards of the Desert Canyons system, bikes are riding a "detour" just a few yards to the side of the eroded former trail. But here's the good stuff:  there's now a 0.7-mile singletrack link between Pushing Tin and Secret Sauce at the Desert Canyons trailhead.  And I have a new video to show you what the trail system is like.   Desert Canyons trail page...    October 2018.

Get a great
Rocky Mountain
bike from the
UMB store!

St. George Bike Park.  Not officially open, but you can ride
Here's info on the three finished riding areas in this 60-acre bike park. Lots of good stuff.   St.G Bike Park trail page...    October 2018.

Eric's Trail links Blackridge to Juniper Crest
I've updated the Herriman trail pages with new maps, trail descriptions, and photos. There's a new video of the Mustang Loop ride on the Blackridge page, and a quick POV run down Eric's east side on my YouTube channel. Great riding.   Eric's / Blackridge trail page...    October 2018.

WoW trail videos
Wasatch Over Wasatch in its fall colors! Separate videos of the climb and the descent are embedded on the WoW trail page. And for fun, the Bruce Blues Band provides the soundtrack for this video of the downhill!   Trail page...    September 2018.

Updated Rush and Canyon Hollow pages
OK, this was just an excuse to make my 200th trail video with the song "Half the Man She Is" as background music. It's on my YouTube channel HERE.  There's nothing new to report about these trails. I just added a  few new photos and embedded more-conventional videos of Canyon Hollow and Rush on the trail pages.   Rush trail page...   Canyon Hollow trail page...   September 2018.

The Oakley Trail Park is open!
Oakley offers a small but very fun system of trails, including downhill-only trails for beginner, intermediate, or expert. Connects to higher-mountain trails for those who want something wilder. Includes a video of a quick loop ride.   Trail page...   September 2018.

Expanded Navajo Peak section  of Virgin River Rim!
This is the most popular segment of the VRRT. I've added a page about the loop ride over Navajo Peak and around Navajo Lake, with information on the connecting trails to the campgrounds. Now includes a video.  Trail page...   September 2018.

Snow Gauging trail
Bet you've never heard of this one. It's a great ride in American Fork Canyon. Previously published as an option on the Horse Flat ride, it now has its own trail page. Includes an embedded video.   Trail page...   August 2018.

Willow Hollow trail rebuild is a winner!
I recently realized I hadn't published anything about the new alignment of the upper Willow Hollow trail in American Fork Canyon. Well, it converted this formerly trenched and rough grunt climb into a smooth pleasant climb. There's a video embedded on the trail page.   Trail page...   August 2018.

Tibble Fork diversion trail is open
We lost the bottom of Tibble Fork, but now a diversion trail is open. At about 1/2 mile above the dam, it sends you over to the Mill Canyon trail. Yes it's good to have Tibble open, but I'm not fond of the diversion. The traverse has some grunt granny-gear climbing, and it dumps you on the top of that despicable 20% downslope on Mill Canyon.    Trail page...   August 2018.

Pine Hollow trail page
For the last 20 years, I've had bits of Pine Hollow information scattered among 4 different trail pages that describe rides in American Fork Canyon! I finally decided to bring it all together, add some new photos, and create a dedicated page for the Pine Hollow trail.   Trail page...   August 2018.

Deer Creek South Fork - a revisit
This loop is one of Utah's must-rides. An absolute classic.  I've updated the DCSF page with new photos and made a new trail video!   Trail page...   August 2018.

Beautiful White Pine Lake
This part of the classic Bunchgrass ride can be done as an out-and-back. The climb out of White Pine is occasionally steep and techy. Page includes a video!   Trail page...   August 2018.

Update (and video) for Salamander Flat trail 150
A classic ride from the Timpooneke trailhead up to Ridge 157 and down through Salamander Flat. Gotta love that grunt up through Pine Hollow!   Trail page...   August 2018.

A Classic Ride -- Jardine Juniper
I've updated the Jardine Juniper page with a few new photos and a video that really shows you what the trail is like.   Trail page...   August 2018.

Updates to East Fork, Middle Fork, Green Pond, and Wheeler Creek
Time to freshen up the Snowbasin-area pages. Sick of looking at crappy old disposable-camera, low-res scanned pictures from 1998. So here's an update with new ride tracks, new photos, more info, and a new printable topo map.   Wheeler Creek / Icebox  page...    Green Pond Loop page...   East Fork / Middle Fork trail page...   August 2018.

Right Fork of Bunker Creek is open
After the fire burned about 30% of the Bunker Creek downhill route, a flood washed much of the trail away. The Right Fork has been excavated and is open for riding now. Still worth doing. Check out the video.   Trail page...  July 2018.

Red Canyon Rim
So much beauty it will make you puke! Went back to this nice trail and made a video so you can decide if it's something you want to do while you're at Flaming Gorge or if you'll make a special trip just to do it.   Trail page...  July 2018.

Updated Sardine Peak page with video
Can't believe it's been 8 years. But I'm back on Sardine Peak with new photos and a video of the loop!   Trail page...  July 2018.

Ogden Canyon Overlook
This is a great out-and-back for beginning and early-intermediate riders. The reward is an awesome view. But you've got to invest a bit of leg, because it's 900 vertical feet up!   Trail page...  July 2018.

Stump Hollow
Updated the trail page and added a video that really shows you what the trail is like.    Trail page...  July 2018.

Update to Four Bay
I ran into a few new trails while making a video of Four Bay in Payson Canyon. There's a little loop off JMC called Ezra, a rather techy narrow twister called K-Launi that bypasses a bit of JMC, and a connector from Little Shawn to Overlook. So I've added them to my topo map.    Trail page...  July 2018.

New Pulp Friction trail
There's a new 1.5-mile downhill-only trail on the west side of Round Valley. It's a very well-built flow trail, not techy but fun and swooping. Got a video if you're interested.   See Round Valley trail page...  July 2018.

Beaver Mountain
There's 5 miles of trail in two loops at the Beaver Mountain ski area at the top of Logan Canyon.  See what it's like with the embedded video.  Trail page...  July 2018.

Tooele? Seriously, Tooele?
Expecting sage brush and juniper, I arrived at Settlement Canyon, a mile from downtown Tooele. Immediately I was riding through tall maples, fir, and aspen. Try it.   Trail page for the Dark Trail...    and for the Left Hand Fork trails...    July 2018.

Maple Canyon
Nice trail, but unless you live in southern Utah County you probably won't be interested. The lower trail is fabulous but it's short, and the upper trail is one mean mama of a climb. But here's the info. You decide!    Trail page...     July 2018.

Big Pole Canyon
Nice system of trails located just east of Heber. Easy riding, some nice views. And of course, I've got a video for you.   Trail page...     July 2018.

New stuff at High Star
Back to High Star Ranch to test the new beginner and expert trails. And now, the trails actually have names! Nice helpful trail signs, including occasional maps on signposts, and a nice variety of fun riding.   Trail page...     July 2018.

Squaw Peak singletrack climbing route
New narrow singletrack trails wind back and forth as they climb through the cool forest behind Squaw Peak. Narrow and twisty with a remote wild feel. But you won't find them without some help. Ride from the bottom of the Squaw Peak road all the way to Buffalo Peak on singletrack!   Trail page...     June 2018.

Update to the Squaw Peak DH page!
Lots more information and new photos of the DH options from Buffalo Peak down to the BST. Includes the Overlook Trail as a DH option.   Trail page...     June 2018.

Zooropa
New downhill flow trail on the south side of Traverse Mountain, starting on Eagle Crest just west of Levitate and Vertigo. Still a bit chunky, with riders dropping into the "beginner line" on the bottom rather than rolling the berms. Needs moisture and riders who will hit the berms high.   Trail page...     June 2018.

Achtung Baby!
Already bloodied myself on this lovely new flow trail. There's just too much tempting fun stuff built into it. See my trail page for a video of a loop ride via Hog Hollow.   Trail page...     June 2018.

Check out the Richfield Race Loop
Used to be, the area between Payson and Parowan was a mountain bike desert. Nothing there. Now there's new singletrack going in everywhere. Here's what the newest race loop in Utah looks like.   Trail page...     June 2018.

Making sense of Black Hill
Black Hill offers great riding in a wildlife management area  just outside Ephraim. There are over a dozen trails interconnected with doubletrack. Navigation can be complex. Watch the lovely video, then check out the ride suggestions. You might find my map useful to print and take with you.   Black Hill trail page...     May, 2018.

Video of M.O.A.B.
The "Brand Trails" of the Bar M riding area, all in a single video of the loop ride. See the Circle O or Rockin A pages. Also, new pics of Bar M on that trail page.   Bar M trail page...   Circle O trail page...   Rockin A trail page...     May, 2018.

How are those videos made?
I (Bruce) get a lot of questions about what cameras I use and how I handle all that equipment out on the trail. Rather than type the same thing into the YouTube comments again and again, I've created this page so I can just copy the URL.   Video creation page...    February, 2018.
