Skyline National Recreation Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Tushar Mountains east of Beaver are one of Utah’s alpine hideaways— seldom visited and largely unknown. Ardent skiers may be familiar with the quaint resort of Elk Meadows, and big-game hunters might know of a good camp spot or two, but the Tushars have successfully eluded the fevered quest of mountain bikers.

The majority of the Tushars’ backcountry trails can shred even the most hard-core mountain biker since the paths are more suited for hooves and boots than fat-tires. Skyline National Recreation Trail, on the other hand, is a serendipitous find. Along the way you’ll pass Puffer Lake and Elk Meadows Ski Area, which provide additional summertime activities. Tread: 12 miles of dirt roads and doubletracks, 10 miles of singletrack, 5 miles of pavement."
