Center Trail to Strawberry Ridge Loop. Second Water and upper Fifth Water Trails.
The Center Trail to Strawberry Ridge Loop is an epic ride for very strong conditioned riders. But there are shorter ride options, so stay tuned. The ride starts at 7400 feet elevation on Rays Valley Road, mid-way between Hobble Creek and Spanish Fork Canyon. The loop has just over 4000 vertical feet of climbing, with a top altitude of 8500 feet. It's 18.3 miles long. Less-strong riders can ride shorter loop options to the Center Trail via Third Water or Fourth Water.

Getting there, via Spanish Fork Canyon:  On I-15, exit on US-6 toward Price. Continue up Spanish Fork Canyon, passing the Manti exit at mile 14. About mile 23, just after exiting the "Red Narrows", turn left on the paved Sheep Creek Road. (It's immediately before the gas station and camping area.) 7 miles up the road, pass the Unicorn Ridge camping area (toilet!) and the Strawberry Ridge Road on your right. At 9.3 miles from US-6, you'll pass a corral on your left, then note a dirt road on the right. That dirt road is the parking area for the Second Water Trail.
