Wheeler Creek Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Wedged between ledgy limestone cliffs and lightly forested slopes, Wheeler Creek Trail is a spirited jaunt between Ogden Canyon and Snow Basin Ski Area. A gurgling creek accompanies you along the way while the refrains of songbirds drift from riparian hideaways. And on a warm summer day, nearby Pineview Reservoir offers a cool après-ride plunge. The route is also known as Art Nord Drive.

The resurrected singletrack curves through grass meadows embraced by moist woods that deer and moose are known to inhabit. Mount Ogden, with its stony frontispiece, is a glorious sight. Although the new trail’s grade was kept low and footbridges were installed at strategic water crossings, there are a few sections where rough conditions prevail. But by and large, Wheeler Creek Trail is perfect for a little pre-season training or to take the edge off a hard day’s work. Tread: 2.2 miles of pebbly doubletrack and 3.3 miles of singletrack one way."

The first ~3 miles are along an old gravel road that meanders up the canyon alongside a small creek. Once you''re legs and lungs are warmed up the trail turns to singletrack and the fun begins. Wandering among aspen groves and over small creeks the trail eventually reaches a terminus and turnaround point at Snowbasin. From here the fun begins as you turn your bike 180 degrees and head back down. This trail is very popular with horseback riders so please control your speed on the way back down.

Connecting from Wheeler Canyon to Moose Creek trail takes you to the bottom parking lot of Snow Basin. A new trail is being cut that will connect to the Indian Trail. Nice ride...full of singletrack and technical terrain...a nice afternoon ride.
