Green Canyon is the locals’ favorite because it offers quick and direct access to the heart of the mighty Bear River Range. There is no need to pack up the car for a long haul because you can pedal right from town for a noontime workout or a post-work wind down. If a casual pace is more your speed, then pack along some treats and snuggle up to a shady cottonwood at one of many picnic tables mid-route. Terraced limestone slopes 1,500-feet tall support tenacious oak, maple, and pygmy conifers on sunny aspects and pine and fir on shady recesses. Singletrack purists can follow an optional path stemming from the road’s end as far as the Mount Naomi Wilderness boundary 1.5 miles away. You might be able to sneak out during the winter because the road is typically snow-packed from cross-country skiers. Light-duty dirt road with gravel, rock, and washboards that is suitable for passenger cars but may be too rough for tag-along child trailers.
