Mountain Biking Utah

This is a great mountain bike trail if you like the ups and downs. Almost 5 miles from the trail head to the old tree, and it is 99.9% uphill. The first two miles are the hardest, climbing with almost no shade. The rest of the trail is not quite as steep, and has a lot more shade. With about 3/4 mile left, you can choose the "scenic route" or the "shady route". Although the scenic side does have some nice views, it is also just the opposite of shade, and gets very hot. It also climbs more than the shady side, and then descends at the end. After making the tiring uphill ride, be sure to stop and sign the log book and enjoy the views before rocketing back down.
