TR -- Yellow Fork
I met up with Fourtycal and two of his friends for a ride last night. I had never been to Yellow Fork. It is west of Herriman up Rose Canyon. It is a great trail for a weeknight. It took us just under 2 hours to complete. The uphill kicked my butt and there was some pushing involved for everyone. Some of the uphill is insanely steep.
The downhill is great!!! A good payoff for the calf burning that you have to endure to start the ride. The trail follows a small stream for some of the trail. The down hill is narrow, fast, and has some rocks thrown in every now and then. The dirt is a little loose and your front tire wants to get away on a few corners. This area is popular for horses too. The horses really turn up the dirt and make it dusty, soft, and gravely. A great night for a ride as I drove home listening to mandatory Metallica with a beautiful sunset.

What were the directions to get to this trail? It looks pretty sweet, also how long was it?? Take it easy!!
P.S. I attempted to go biking up in ParK City yesterday and was turned off by the lack of help I received from the locals in getting some water and finding the trail. They blew.....
Two wheels are better than four, keep the rubber side down.

My yellow fork trail report, with pics
I hit Yellow Fork this morning with the homies. This is what I posted at Utahmountainbiking.com forums. Pics included!
Got out and rode the entire trail, as published. Not recommended the morning after racing in the RMR crit series
The lower portion of the trail is dry and dusty, but very very fast. The middle part of the climb is very loose and somewhat technical, with alot of loose rocks and gravel. The upper part of the climb is in fantastic shape. The single track sections are fairly overgrown, some of them you feel like you're bushwacking. Its amazingly green. Trail should be in even better shape with this afternoons' rain.

Are you a nine-to-five kinda guy or can you squeeze in morning weekday rides sometimes?
