The Glenwild Loop is an 8.4 mile intermediate-technical loop, located just across I-80 from Park City. Starting at 6350 feet, the loop has 800 feet of elevation change, with a total of 1200 feet of climbing. A cutoff trail splits the loop in two, if you're looking for a shorter ride.
|The trail is easy to follow: when you come to a road, the
trail continues straight across. The intersection with the cutoff trail at
N 40° 44.372' W 111° 32.482', however, requires a little explanation.
Counterclockwise: the cutoff trail will merge on your left as you near a road at mile 1.05. Then, after the descent from the high ridge, you'll come onto a fire break at mile 5.9. The trail straight across the road is the cutoff trail! To complete the full loop, turn hard right and roll down the firebreak, which turns into singletrack after about 100 yards.
Clockwise: you'll come up the firebreak at mile 2.5. Turn hard left uphill. (The trail on the right is the cutoff trail.) Then at mile 7.4, keep left downhill at the trail fork.
|Getting there: At the I-80 Park City exit, go
north (left from the exit if you're coming from SLC) to the frontage road.
Turn right. About 1/4 mile later at the second road on your left, turn
left past the church. Park just before the intersection, where you see the
trail map kiosk. GPS N 40° 43.662' W 111° 32.051'. Head up the road to
start your ride just past the bridge. Turn right on singletrack for a
counterclockwise loop, left for clockwise.
