Thread: Your 2017 Mountain Bike Trail Bucket List

    Your 2017 Mountain Bike Trail Bucket List

    What are the trails you need to ride this year? Not just trails you've never done, but some old favorites too.

    It's been a few years since I've ridden Wasatch Crest. Glenwild Loop is another one.

    For those I've never been on, hopefully this is the year for:

    • Porcupine Rim / the Whole Enchilada
    • any trails in Fruita Colorado
    • the new additions to the JEM Trail
    • Nephi's Twist, near Virgin
    • The Bountiful B downhill trail
    • Ben Lomond

    After a summer of convalescence last year, I'm ready to do some big rides. So far on my list:

    Logan Canyon Sampler v6.0
    Circumnavigation of Ben Lomond Peak
    WOW Trail
    Fruita Fat Tire Festival
    AF Canyon.

    For the Ben Lomond ride, I might set up a shuttle that takes us up to Willard Peak, then picks us up at the North Ogden Divide, or even at the bottom of the paved road in North Ogden (or even the Ogden Valley side in Liberty). Yeah, it's cheating, but I'll be hauling up a lot of gear including my drone, and I don't want to spend the whole day on the climb.

    I'd love to get some shots of the white mountain goat herd up there near the peak, I think they would look incredible from the air. Then riding down along the top ridge, I'm thinking those shots would be awesome from the drone, seeing the whole valley in the background.

    So currently, if I can only make one of these bucket list rides happen, it would be the Ben Lomond ride this summer.

    I've noticed that most of my motivation for mountain biking these days, is the type of video and photo footage it would provide. Are my priorities mixed up? It's hard to tell.

    We've been wanting to do the whole loop for a couple years now. Plan is to start at the bottom of hte Divide road and head clockwise around the loop.

    -North Ogden BST
    -Willard BST
    -Up Perry Canyon
    -Across and up to Ben Lomond Peak
    -Down Northern Skyline
    -Down whatever the trail is that parallels the Divide road.

    It's gonna be a doozy.

    The first week of August I'll be hiking for a week near Pagosa Springs here in Colorado...I'll take a day and ride Phil's World near Cortez. It's supposed to be awesome.

    Check out this Moab I'll be there and you'll be able to ride anything you want, although the Whole Enchilada may be snowed in at the very top. This gathering is a lot of fun.
    Freedom of what you got.
