Mountain Bike

Personal favorite, this trail has a little bit of everything that i consider Wasatch riding. Start by crossing a bridge and heading up into a historic pioneer trail that turns a hair northshore a little ways up with a log crossing and a log bridge over the river, a gradual climb through some of the most surreal and quite surroundings (not very well known). Very soft hard pack with a few riverbed crossing and a few dusty "flat out" sections (you want to be cautious here on the descent because its easy to carry WAY too much speed into the more technical sections...trust me. you end up at the top of Little mountain by mountain dell reservoir, then just turn around and head back. and extremely fun and fast doesn't. a little cold, best time to ride...early or late summer Courtesy of Singletracks.com

Never modify trail features. Ride trails when they're dry enough that you won't leave ruts. Speak up when you see others on the trail and always yield to hikers, horses, and others coming uphill. Always ride on the established trail.
