Little Baldy - Southside Timpanogos Great Western Trail (GWT)
This is a mean little climb on nice forested singletrack with views over Utah Valley from the slopes of Mount Timpanogos. This ride is for advanced riders who relish strong climbing. Once you hit the singletrack, you'll grunt up 2000 vertical feet in 3.5 miles. That's a pretty stiff rate of climb on narrow trail. Seriously, if you're a beginner or intermediate rider, hike, don't bike. The route below climbs via the least ugly route to "The Altar" where trails come together, then uphill to Little Baldy. On the return trip, this route forks on to Trail 51 over to Dry Canyon and loops back via the singletrack BST for an 11.5 mile ride with 2700 vertical feet of climbing.

Immediately past the cemetery, turn right (east) on Cascade Drive just before the Y in the road and drive 1/2 mile, go up 2 short switchbacks, and park just above the small brown building in the paved parking area. The singletrack BST trail starts just south of the parking.
