Dead Dog Loop
The Dead Dog Loop is a series of singletracks in the mesa area between Price and the Book Cliffs. Brief sections of dirt road join the singletracks together. It's around 8.5 miles total, but there's only about 400 vertical feet of climbing. Most of the trail is intermediate technical, but there's one short section (Dead Dog Spine) that requires very advanced skills. All but elite riders should walk this 1/4 mile.

Getting there:  Eastbound on US 6, take the first Price exit. Turn left and enter town on 100 North. About a mile after leaving the freeway, turn left (north) onto 300 East. Go five city blocks to 800 North and turn right. Drive 1.5 miles on 800 North to the end of the pavement, as you pass Cliffview Cemetery. Turn left on the dirt road. After 1/4 mile, veer L as the road forks just below the hill. Now keep straight at all intersections. Two miles later, you'll pass a large building, with a settling pond on the north side. The trailhead is the intersection where the next dirt road joins on your right (the intersecting road is the return path). N 39 38.626 W 110 47.089 You'll begin riding by continuing up the road in the direction you were driving.
