Ridge Trail 157 Professional Review and Guide
"Like Skyline Trail in Ogden and the Wasatch Crest Trail in Salt Lake City, Ridge Trail 157 captures the essence of mountain biking by following a thrilling singletrack through the heart of a mountain range. You’ll need a full repertoire of skills for the varying trail conditions and an extra pair of eyes to lock onto the mountain scenery while pedaling. But if you stop from time to time, you’ll be captivated by a skyline shaped by 11,000-foot summits and terrain composed of glacial valleys and river-cut canyons. American Fork Canyon is a hub for recreational activity. Its reservoirs and streams attract anglers, its solid limestone walls assure technical rock climbers of firm hand holds, and its roadside campsites and picnic areas offer interludes with nature for those less adventurous. But it’s American Fork’s network of wilderness and non-wilderness trails that have made it a haven for hikers, equestrians, and mountain bikers. Ridge Trail 157 is the backbone of American Fork’s non-wilderness trail system. It’s a world-class ride in itself. More importantly, it is the framework for an array of peripheral trails that open up countless options for return explorations. The route begins with 4 miles of doubletrack and continues with 10 miles of smooth and not-so-smooth singletrack."
