|Sundance Resort Bike Trails
This resort offers intermediate-level trails, with a ski lift to take you to the top. The singletrack trails are fun and well-maintained. Turns are banked for bikes. Most of the riding is in aspens and pines, with an occasional meadow giving you a great view of the back side of Timpanogos. There are two major trails, which branch from the same singletrack about 1/2 mile from the lift, plus a couple of side routes. This is a private resort -- you must sign a waiver and pay for a day pass.
|There are three major routes that branch from the same singletrack about 1/2 mile from the lift. Branching options let you select different scenery and difficulty level. These major routes include Ray's Run, Scotts Pond, and Archies Loop. Ray's Run is a more-or-less straight plunge down the mountain with an option to fork to Boneyard via Rock & Roll or continuing down to Lower Bobsled. There are a lot of banked turns in the trees. The Upper Bobsled version of this route gets our vote! Scott's Pond Loop features Switchback Alley (appropriately named) and a lovely ride around a pond, then connects to Rock & Roll - Boneyard or to Archies Loop. Archies Loop is a fairly straight cruise around a mountain, taking you to an impressive view over the North Fork's junction with Provo Canyon. Archies connects to Boneyard, which dumps out on the service road just south from the lift.|

available at Sundance.
Getting there: From I-15, take the Orem 800 North Exit and drive straight east (towards the mountains) to the mouth of Provo Canyon. As 800 North divides, take the left fork up into the canyon on US-189. Five miles up the canyon, turn left at U-92 and drive two miles to Sundance. Lift passes are sold in the bike rental shop at the northwest corner of the building closest to the parking lot. Ray's lift is 100 feet west of the bike shop.
