|Cutler Flat Loop -
North Fork Park
Cutler Flat Loop is a short ride at the north end of North Fork Park, only 5 miles long. It can be a quick ride if you know where you're going. Top altitude is 6300 feet, bottom (at the picnic area) is 5700. Cutler Flat will seem quite non-flat to you. Although the altitude change is not great, it occurs over fairly short distances. There will be some sustained climbs with a pitch of 9-10%. The ride is about half singletrack and half gravel road.
|Getting there: Go up Ogden Canyon. (From the north on I-15, take the 12th South Ogden exit and head east on Highway 39. From the south, exit I-15 on US 89. Pass I-84 and climb up the hill, then turn right on Harrison Blvd. Continue on Harrison until you hit U-39 and turn R toward Ogden Canyon.) Turn left across the dam at Pineview Reservoir. At the stop sign in Eden, turn left. Turn left at the stop sign in Liberty. After about 1/4 mile, take the next right. Just after you cross the river, veer left toward North Fork Park. Pass the first entrance into the North Fork Park (on your left). Go another mile up the road and turn left at the second entry N41 22.986 W111 54.298. Fork left at the T intersection. When you reach a hairpin turn with a gate at the apex (north side) of the turn, N41 22.979 W111 55.187, you're there. There's a singletrack on the right as you face the gate. That's a shortcut for a counterclockwise loop. Ignore it. The trail is the ST that sneaks around the left side of the gate, and the trail is the soft cindered DT.|
