During the early 1990s, Brian Head emerged as one of southern Utah’s premier mountain-biking venues, second only to Moab, naturally. The two towns are worlds apart, both in distance and surroundings. Ride the canyon country of Moab in spring and fall, but during summer, head to Brian Head for the best alpine trails between the Rockies and the Sierras. Scout Camp Loop should top your list of must-do rides. It features the energetic singletracks for which Brian Head has gained fame; plus it’s a loop ride. No vehicle shuttle is needed, and you’ll actually get a workout instead of cruising downhill all day as on neighboring trails. Scout Camp Loop has been the chosen course of the Brian Header mountain-bike race for years, and for good reason—it’s outrageous.
