View of Fish Lake from the shoreline trail

Fish Lake Shoreline Trail - Mytoge Mountain
Fish Lake, at 8700 feet, is the site of the Mytoge Mountain bike trail, which climbs over the mountain south of the lake. Along the north shore of the lake, there's an easy well-groomed trail that hugs the shoreline. This is perfect for the kiddies. Strong intermediate riders will use this trail to complete a 26-mile loop: west on the shoreline trail, around the west side of the lake, south to the top of Mytoge Mountain, east across the upper plateau, down some technical stuff to the east end of the lake, then back to the shoreline trail.

Getting there: Fish Lake is about 210 miles south of Salt Lake City. Take I-15 to Cipio, then UT-50 to Salina. Backtrack west (turn right) on I-70 about 7 miles, then take UT-24 to UT-25 and continue to the lake. The shoreline trail can be picked up anywhere along the north side. There's a parking area titled "Doctor Creek Trailhead" at the west end of the lake, which is a good place to pick up the shoreline trail.
