Little South Fork of Provo River Trail

Little South Fork of Provo River Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Little South Fork of Provo River Trail is another of those way-out-there singletracks that mountain bikers have recently gone gaga over. The 8.5-mile downhill trail is well worth the hour-and-a-half drive from the Wasatch Front. But the thrill does not come easy.

The near 3,000-foot climb to the upper trailhead consumes a couple of hours of solid effort. But when you reach the summit, you’ll poach some good views of the distant Uinta Mountains, which shape the skyline like humpbacked whales breaching the ocean. Then you’ll embark on an 8-mile descent on a singletrack that you’ll wish was right in your backyard. You won’t find Little South Fork splashed on posters or mentioned in flashy magazines. Let’s keep it that way. Tread: 5 miles of pavement, 3 miles of gravel road, 6 miles of doubletrack, and 8 miles of singletrack."

Better yet, start at Bench Creek, ride up Bench Creek trail, across the top..and back down..and down..and down, criss crossing the stream..all the way to the little south fork of the provo trialhead. A great ride..but not during hunting season. Bench Creek trailhead is just past Woodland, turn right at the church..go til a house with a stone wall..and wood fence with a dirt road between appear on right--take it 1 mi to trailhead parking. The single track begins just across the stream bridge, drops off to the right. Yield to horses..and talk to the horse.
