Oak Vista to Eagle Crest Loop
The Oak Vista trail is a short trail that will eventually connect to Maple Hollow and the BST. For now, it ends on Traverse Ridge Drive. The loop ride described here descends to the (temporary) bottom of Oak Vista, climbs up Traverse Ridge Drive, then takes the Eagle Crest trail westbound on the south side of Traverse Mountain. The loop is 4.5 miles with 400 vertical feet of climbing. One mile (and most of the climbing) is pavement, the other 3.5 miles is very nice singletrack. Top altitude is 6200 feet.

Getting there, Long Branch (Oak Vista) trailhead:  From I-15 in Salt Lake City, take the Bluffdale exit and head east on Highland Drive toward the mountains. As you reach the traffic light at the top of the hill, about 3/4 mile after leaving the freeway, turn right on Traverse Ridge Road. Drive about two miles up to the top of the mountain. At the stop sign in Suncrest, turn right on Deer Ridge Drive and go 0.7 miles. Watch for a parking area on your right. The trail ducks through the oak on the north side. N40 28.593 W111 50.643
