    Trails for an intermediate rider in Park City or Moab?

    greetings. i'm going to have a couple of weeks free in july to do basically whatever i want. as stated i'm probably an intermediate skill level and ride a santa cruz superlight 29 with the 120mm fork. with that combo of rider and bike is it even worth it for me to come out there or will every place be over my head? thanks for any advice.

    Thanks, I figured I'd first make sure it was worth it before digging thru the message board. I will now.

    Forget Moab in July. It's nuclear hot there. Spend your time in the Park City area. As an intermediate rider you can ride about 99% of the trails at Park City. I second looking at the utahmountainbiking.com site. Also look at Mountain Trails Foundation. Make sure you pick up a recent, local trails map put out by the Mountain Trails Foundation every year for the PC area trails.

    Northern Utah has very little 'advanced' tech sections. Most of N Utah is more of advanced endurance because there isnt much tech like south western end of the mountains. Id say a lot of the decent ~10 mile loops you will easily bag 1200+ ft of climbing and most of it is all at once.
