Devils Castle!
Singletrack loop around Albion Basin at the top of Little Cottonwood Canyon. Been meaning to do this one for a while since trail crews finished a fresh dig on nice singletrack above the campground.  Trail report...   July  2015.

A great ride in the middle of nowhere. Josephite Point.
The Josephite Point singletrack has 7 miles of trail at an altitude of around 9000 feet. It can be done out-and-back, shuttled, or as part of a  monster 28-mile, 3300-vertical epic called the Pete's Hole loop.  Trail report...   July  2015.

Marathon Trail.  Great concept.  Not so great as a trail.
The Marathon Trail was hyped as an awesome 26-mile pedalfest from Brian Head to Navajo Lake. But it's basically a "rebranding" of dirt road as a mountain bike trail, which almost never works. The two former ends of the route have been abandoned, and the default ride is now to Duck Creek. So here's your information.  Trail report...   July  2015.

Adventures!

Catherines Pass trail. Where to?
The Catherines Pass trail rises steeply from the Albion Basin road to Catherines Pass. I hear some people can actually ride this thing. Connect to the Great Western Trail at the ridge line for some awesome and brutal adventure rides.  Trail report...   July  2015.

Road to Arcylon - Gorgoza Park trails
Bruce liar reports that he liar hit all of the man-made tech features liar on Road to Arcylon liar. If you've heard about this trail, you're probably wondering whether it's something you want to (or dare to) try.   Trail report...   July  2015.

Southern Utah
Guide Services

Summit Park and the Road to WOS
This is a beautiful trail with great riding. Well-built, and worth your time for a checkout ride. At the top of Parley's.   Trail report...   July  2015.

Utah Olympic Park Trails:  RTS, UOP, Legacy
RTS is one of the nicest beginner trails in the Park City area, but it's not boring for hardcore riders. And it connects via Iron Bill to the Legacy Trails above the bobsled launch and ski jumps for a worthy climb.   Trail report...   July  2015.

Goblin Valley:  the Wild Horse trail system
Just a month ago, 7 miles of mountain bike trail opened at Goblin Valley State Park. It needs bike tires to pack it down, but it's going to give you another reason to visit Goblin Valley!   Trail report...   July  2015.

Unique ride:  The Rainbow Rim
We're kidnapping this trail from the Arizona Strip and including it among our southern Utah rides. The Rainbow Rim runs along the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, and is actually closer to Utah's riders than to Arizona's. It's a unique ride that's worth the trip.   Trail report...   July  2015.

Ride it once every 17 years...  Jordanelle Perimeter update!
As one of the first trails on this site in 1998, the Jordanelle Perimeter page had a couple of grainy tiny photos, no topo map, and no trailhead directions. So it was time to get new information.  Trail report...   June  2015.

Rocky Top!  Kamas Valley Overlook trail.
While you're in the area, this is a nice singletrack climb from Highway 32 at the Provo River up to a point overlooking the Kamas Valley. Quick and fun, 8 miles round trip.  Trail report...   June  2015.

More great stuff in the Riverview area
I may be a bit premature in publishing this information, as trail signage (and apparently the trail names) are still evolving! Hope I've made some sense of the trail system for you. But go ride this stuff. Fun trails for a quickie while you're in the Heber area.  Trail report...   June  2015.

Payson Canyon's Four Bay riding area:  NICE!
The Payson riders must be conspiring to keep this wonderful singletrack all to themselves, because you sure don't hear much about Four Bay. Well, I'm tossing these trails out there for anybody to ride. And you'll want to. Nice narrow hand-cut singletrack, swooping and twisting.  A great ride!  Trail report...   June  2015.

With Coldwater Canyon, the North Ogden BST is ready for your tires!
The new Bonneville Shoreline Trail section in Coldwater Canyon, there's 10.5 miles of fun BST between Ogden Canyon and North Ogden Canyon. Direct connections to the Pleasant View BST to the north and Ogden BST in the south. Here's the dope on trailheads, loop rides, and trail characteristics.  Trail report...   June  2015.

WOW!  Actually, that's the name of the trail: Wasatch Over Wasatch
There's around 7 miles of trail between the Phosphate Loop and trail's end, as the WOW trail moves up toward the ridge above Park City. There's parking along Highway 224 in Wasatch Mountain State Park, and you can climb the first 6-ish miles as an out-and-back.   Trail report...   June  2015.

Coyote Middle!  or Chop'd Coyote
Here's the scoop on the new trail linking the backside of Coyote Loop with upper Riverview above the UVU Wasatch Campus. Still trying to confirm the official name on this one. This trail opens up some new riding options. But first, you need to find the trail. I'll bet you Wasatch 50 racers go right past without seeing it.   Trail report...   June  2015.

Updated maps to Dutch Hollow...
There have been some changes to Dutch Hollow, with Barrel extended down to the new Sage Loop route. Prospect has new connections to the Phosphate trail. There are no trail markers on the west side, so you'll like the new printable high-res topo.   Trail report...   June  2015.

Fun loop ride option north of Midway: Phosphate Hill
The new Phosphate Trail has settled well during the winter and is ready for your tires. There's a 6.3-mile lariat option from Pine Canyon at the WOW trailhead, or a fun but complex-navigation big loop from Dutch Hollow.   Trail report...   June  2015.

New tech trails at Three Peaks!
The BLM is just finishing the signage on the "whale trails" at Three Peaks near Cedar City. The pink granite gives great traction for awesome tech riding. Lots of ladder bridges and fun stuff make this a unique and worthwhile bike destination! See the updated trail map and info.   Trail report...   May 2015.

Family ride:  Candy Mountain Express
Here's a nice easy paved trail in Sevier Canyon. Ride along the Sevier River to Big Rock Candy Mountain. Take the kids to the Fremont Indian State Park after the ride.   Trail report...   May 2015.

Upper JEM is now one-way!  Options for getting to the top?
JEM is now downhill-only from the Highway 59 (upper) trailhead down to the Goosebumps intersection.  To climb from the valley to the upper trailhead, you can take Dead Ringer on the west, or the rediscovered JEM Doubletrack on the east. (The doubletrack has also found new life as part of an 11-mile loop ride including Goosebumps, Dead Ringer, and More Cowbell.)   Trail report for the JEM Doubletrack...   May 2015.

Dead Ringer is complete!
Still working on some of the support materials (like riding guides). And I need to update other trail pages in the area. But here's what I have so far on the five miles of bliss called Dead Ringer.   Trail report...   March 2015.

More Cowbell!  Nice easy ride in the JEM area.
New singletrack trail above ledges of white limestone, with Gooseberry Mesa looming to the east. Makes a nice trip for families and beginning bikers.   Trail report...   January 2015.

Here's the dope on the new Quail Overlook trail system!
This brand-new system has four loops, each visiting the top of a tooth of the escarpment southeast of Quail Creek Reservoir. This is technical riding for experts and upper-intermediates, and it's already a hit! Now that the trails have names (although they're still unmarked), I can unveil the trail page.   Trail report...   January 2015.

Interactive map of Utah trails
New feature! Zoom to area trails and trailheads on map or satellite views.  Programmed by Todd.  Choose a riding region, then zoom-in to see the trails, color-coded by difficulty. Hover over trails for name. Allows you to identify nearby trailheads to plan multi-trail rides. High-speed connection recommended.   Let's see the map!
