Beaver Creek Trail

Beaver Creek Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Punishing climbs, white-knuckle descents, and the pursuit of high-caliber singletrack (arguably the purest form of mountain biking) lure many to the world of fat-tire cycling. But for those who are just starting out, or for families with children, something a bit more mellow might be in order. Like a radio station that plays easy-listening tunes rather than head-banging rock, the Beaver Creek Trail is perfect for those seeking the softer side of mountain biking. You won’t have to worry about dicing it up with a pack of wanna-be NORBA champs; they’re too busy charting their heart rate on marathon rides across entire mountain ranges.

Instead, you’ll likely encounter other first-time bikers with their children, too. Beaver Creek is neither dirt road nor singletrack but rather a “mega-track.” It is part of the Taylor Fork ATV trail system. Sure, ATVs tend to be noisy and obtrusive, but they can pack down a fine trail for mountain bikes. The route parallels a gently meandering creek pooled occasionally by beaver dams. On one side lies the creek’s willow- and grass-filled floodplain, and on the other side, forested slopes of the lower Uinta Mountains. Tread: ATV trail. Think of it as an ultra-wide singletrack."

Rode this trail with my wife. We're both just getting into Mountain Biking. This trail offers nice landscapes and views, without killing yourself to get there. I would recommend this for new bikers; great trail for braking you in. A little tough to find though. Pay your $6 fee at the Ranger kiosk, then flip a u turn and come back down the road 200 yards to park on the north side. Trail is easy to access from there.
