Co-op Creek Trail - with optional loop through Sleepy Hollow
The Co-op Creek Trail is a very nice singletrack trail in the hills north of Strawberry Reservoir. The singletrack itself is 4 miles long, with a low of 8000 feet elevation and a top of 8900. The trail follows Co-op Creek up a canyon (in the upper 2 miles, the creek isn't visible through the trees around the trail). The rate of climb is reasonable and it's easy technically, suitable for early-intermediate riders. The loop ride is 12.5 miles climbing to almost 10,000 feet elevation with spectacular views extending 40 miles. This route adds 1.5 miles on the Co-op Creek Road, 3.3 miles on ATV track, and 3.2 miles descending the singletrack Sleepy Hollow Trail.

Getting there:  Take US-40 southbound from Heber and drive up Daniel's Canyon 17 miles from the US-40 to US-189 junction. After passing the summit, continue another 5.5 miles, passing the Strawberry Administrative area and paved road on your right. 7 miles past the summit, 1.5 miles from the road fork, turn left on the Co-op Creek Road. N40 14.639 W111 09.419. (Stop at the outhouse in the parking area if you need to.) Drive 3.4 miles up the Co-op Creek Road. As the road turns sharply left and uphill (about 150 feet before a metal gate), note a parking area on your right with a log fence at the end, N40 17.402 W111 09.865. The log fence is the trailhead for the Sleepy Hollow Trail. The Co-op Creek Trail starts as a doubletrack across the road. Facilities: None in the trail area. There's a bathroom at the bottom of the Co-op Creek Road.
