East Canyon Road Ride

East Canyon Road Ride Professional Review and Guide

"Whether ridden by itself or tacked onto either the Parleys Canyon/I–80 ride or Emigration Canyon Road, the East Canyon Road to Big Mountain Pass has a Euro feel, as the last several miles switchback steeply to the 7,420-foot-high “col.” It’s hardly hors de categorie, but it’s a stiff climb just the same. Racers might dance on their pedals up the grade; mortals will be wishing for lower gears.

Those not hell-bent on dropping the peloton will be interested to know that the ride has historical significance, as it was the chosen route of the Mormon Pioneers, California Trail, Pony Express, Overland Stage, and original telegraph line between 1846 and 1861. Start: East Canyon Road by Margin of comfort: Fair overall. Mountain Dell Golf Course, 5 It is good for the first 3 miles east of Salt Lake City."
