High Rollas trail at McCoy Flat.
This lariat loop climbs to the top of an irregular mesa within the Milk and Cookies loop, following the mesa edge for nice views of the surrounding area. Not your first choice of the area rides, but a nice addition.   Trail report...    June 2016.

New photos and tracks from Three Peaks.
Finally Bruce is back from river running and is on the trail with a new Rocky Mountain custom build. The Outer Limits trail has been added to the Three Peaks general riding area page, with fresh photos and new details from the Big Hole Loop and the Three Peaks Loop.    June 2016.

Mahogany Mountain. And the spaghetti trails north of Grove Creek.
There's some decent riding in the foothills of northern Utah County, much of it non-sanctioned like Crop Circles. Mahogany Mountain forks off Grove Creek, but you can reach it via a tangled web of foothill trails including the unmarked unofficial Bonneville Shoreline.   Trail report...   May 2016.

Kokopelli. 142 miles.
14,000 vertical feet of climbing, and riders do it in one day. But it can also be a multi-day camping bike trip. Here's the story of the route from Fruita to Moab.   Trail report...   May 2016.

Ooh, I love to dance a little Sidestep...
(For extra points, name that movie!) Great new options off Baby Steps South! Three new trails -- Sidestep North, Instep, and Sidestep South -- let you bypass the boring flats. Make it longer and techy; take a shortcut; ride a nice tech loop. This area just keeps getting better.   Trail report...   April 2016.

Gold Bar Rim. So much fun, it used to be illegal.
New photos, ride tracks, and instructions for the Gold Bar Rim. Super-techy rock with views like no other trail in Moab. <editorial> Now if only the BLM would authorize an alternate route to bypass that sucky awful crappy upper Gold Bar 4x4 so we can ride a BIKE route to the top! </editorial>  Trail report...   April 2016.

Malachite and Azurite
Geo buffs will recognize these trail names as copper minerals. So of course these trails offer new riding options off Miner's Loop in the Klondike Bluffs mountain biking area.    Trail report...   April 2016.

The new Red Hollow trail is almost finished   [UPDATE 4/17: TRAIL IS FINISHED!]
Join the DMBTA crew April 9th and 16th to help dig the new alignment for the final uphill portion of this trail in the mountains east of Cedar City. Here's what this trail is good for:  Trail report...   April 2016.

Cedar City's paved trails
The new East Bench Trail, when combined with the Coal Creek bike path, will tie Red Hollow to the C Trail, the planned bike park, and the new southern trails.   Trail report...   April 2016.

Webb Hill. Sneak preview. But you can ride it now.
Webb Hill has been dug from the trailhead out to the Bloomington overlook. Work continues on the full loop, but for now it's a nice out-and-back ride with some techy stone.   Trail report...   April 2016.

Special April 1st Edition:  The fabulous Valhalla Trail.
Ever want to go biking and never come back? That's the sort of riding you'll find on the Valhalla Trail, an adventure ride like none that you'll find in all of Utah.   Greatest trail report ever...    April 1, 2016.

Hammer Thor's to the Hideout.
This is the first installment of a major trail system in the mountains north of Highway 14 by Cedar City. Short, but nice.   Trail report...   March 2016.

Ready for a trip to the Twilight Zone?
The Twilight Zone trail at Three Peaks opens new loop possibilities, as well as giving you a direct (but fun and slightly techy) route to the "Whale Trails" on the southeast corner.   Trail report...   March 2016.

First installment of Iron Hills trail system in Cedar City!
This loop links easy Lichen It as the climb with Lava Flow as an awesome downhill. Ready to ride and lots of fun. But don't muck up your bike and damage this brand-new trail -- ride only when the ground is frozen rock-solid. The locals think this will be a good fat-bike ride in the winter.   Trail report...   December 2015.

New Horsethief Riding area on 313 northwest of Moab
OK, here's a new area you absolutely must ride. Lots of options. Also nearby, there's a new extension of Bull Run, more miles on Getaway, and a new singletrack diversion on 7-up.   So read all about it!    Horsethief Overview page...     Mustang Loop...     Whirlwind Loop...     Wildcat and Hildalgo...   October 2015.

Horsethief Campground Trails. Good ride for kids!
There are two short easy trail loops south of Horsethief Campground (on Highway 313 northwest of Moab). The Chisholm Trail can take you from the campground to the main Horsethief trail system.  Trail report...   October 2015.

Rockport's Lakeview trail. Families and newbs...
The Lakeview trail runs on the hillside east of Rockport Reservoir in the state park. It's super-easy, suitable for newbies, significant others, and families. For hard-core riders, not a destination trail. But if you're camping there, bring the bike.   Trail report...   October 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...   Held over from 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...   Held over from July  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.
