The growth in mountain biking has been phenomenal over the past fifteen to twenty years, and still it goes on—nowhere more so than in Utah. Our state may be mountain biking capital of the world. Mountain biking can be enjoyed alone or with friends and family. Once the basics of cycle power and balance are mastered, this is a sport that will give untold hours of pleasure. A great aerobic workout combined with as much adrenaline as you want on the descents—this sport has it all.
Salt Lake and the surrounding areas offer every type of ride for all abilities; choose among high Wasatch ridges, gentle pavement near the cities of the Wasatch Front, classics on the islands of the Great Salt Lake and out in the Great Basin Desert. And if you’re looking for a break from major aerobics, chose a ski resort that has a chairlift to get you and your bike up the hill. Then it’s downhill fun all day long! This guide includes City Creek Trail, Provo River Parkway, Antelope Island: White Rock Bay Loop, Pony Express Trail, North Skyline ad Ben Lomond Trails, South Skyline Trail, Mill Creek Pipeline Trail, Wasatch Crest Trail, Little Cottonwood Canyon Pipeline, Ridge Trail in American Fork Canyon, Deer Valley Ski Resort, Park City Mountain Resort, Snowbird, Solitude, and Sundance.
