Pine Cone Ridge - Loop to Shadow Lake
The Pine Cone Ridge trail is an immediate game-changer for higher-altitude Park City riding. It creates a new and simple route from the Midmountain Trail to the southeastern end of the Wasatch Crest Trail. Pine Cone Ridge starts on the Midmountain Trail, 0.6 miles south of the junction with the Armstrong Trail . It ascends 1400 vertical feet in 4 miles for a reasonable climb rate of 350 vertical feet per mile. The trail ends on the Wasatch Crest, exactly at the flat "catch your breath" area atop Puke Hill. At Puke Hill, turn left down the doubletrack, then drop toward Shadow Lake at Scott's Pass. Take Shadow Lake to Keystone to Apex to CMG.

Getting there:  In Park City, follow the signs to Park City Mountain Resort. As you see the first parking area, turn in and park there. Now ride your bike back out onto Silver King Drive, heading west (uphill, toward the mountain, and the way you were heading when you first saw the parking lot). Turn right onto Three Kings. The next left will be Crescent Drive. Turn uphill. Look for some yellow posts on the right, where Crescent Drive turns left. Go R through the posts and find the singletrack on the uphill side. N 40 39.390' W 111 30.895' (For the loop ride, your return will be at the south end of the parking lot.)
