    Wasatch Crest
    Mueller Park (from North Canyon)


    ...and, I'm out. I don't do much riding in SLC.

    Hi Tucker!

    I would say, Crest Trail, (which you've done), The whole Mid-mountain (which you've done part), Round Mountain & Prospector (easy but really fun - in Park City), Trail 57 around Timp (I think that's the name of it, there are a bunch up there that are awesome), Tour de Suds (in Park City), Solitude (short but sweet), and I hear there are some great trails out near Vernal - Tammy and Ian rode out there this summer and said it was really fun. Mueller Park is fun, too, but do it in a loop not out and back, and never on a weekend.

    Rich has tied together some really great, long rides from SLC to PC and around, he could show you some super fun stuff, too.

    Peace!

    My top 3 within and hour. Hmmm...so hard.

    1. The Crest

    2. Tibble Fork via Pine Hollow Loop or "157"

    There could be several listed at 3.

    3. I would agree on Solitude, don't miss it. Several in Park City too. You can actually hook up with these from the Crest.

    I'm a huge fan of the Bonneville Shoreline trail in Ogden. I could ride that every time. It's got decent views, and it's a simple out and back, climb and descend. It crosses 2 decent sized streams, and it's very easy to get to.

    yeah - I have only ridden it once too - with Acca & Fourtycal...a cool little trail! The downhill section is fast and tight, winding through the brush and trees...and it flows SO well! I rode it on my downhill rig just because I wanted to BOMB the downhill but I was killing myself on the climb up - the dowhil was worth it though! I could get to it again to ride but I'd have a hard time explaining to someone just what roads to take to get there...Fourtycal has ridden it alot -

    Yellow fork is a good trail if you don't mind avoiding and breathing the sweet odor and aroma of horse leftovers! That and in the summer it gets pretty darn dusty.
    So, Kid, you think you got what it takes to be a Punch King?

    If you don't mind the drive to Ogden, the thing i have found about he trails in the Ogden area are they are a lot less crowded the the ones around SLC. One short but fun trail is the "Mormon trail" which is just east of SLC. In the Ogden area, there are lots of trails, my favorites are,
    1. skyline north
    2. wheeler canyon to art nord by way of ice box, to needles to green pond and back to wheeler (up by snow basin)
    3. Bonneville trial
    4. any of the trails at snow basin
    5. sky line from north Ogden divide to Ogden canyon.
    if you are interested i can get you more details or just let me know when you are going to be in town, would love to show you a few of these trails.
    go get lost, it is good for the soul

    That pretty much sums up my fav's also. I frequent these trails a ton in the warm months, Chrmomeheade we need to get out for a ride sometime since I am usually solo when I hit these rides! Also I want to camp out on Ben Lomond this year with the bike.



    Two wheels are better than four, keep the rubber side down.
