    I'll be in Ogden next Fri/Sat and looking for the best trails to ride.
    Thanks in advance.

    Drive up Ogden Canyon and park at the bottom of Wheeler Creek. From there there's a large trail system that leads up to Snowbasin via several trails.

    Rode Maples trail last night and it smooth and sweet. Sardine Peak trail is nice as well. Some of the stuff up at Snowbasin is a bit rough, but still fun on my hardtail.

    Sardine peak in either direction is nice

    Really not much. I have heard of mtn. lion sightings, but never seen one myself. I was sprayed by a skunk, but that was in the foothills. I don't remember ever having an encounter with scary animals, unless you count equestrians . I rode almost the same loop wookie described a week ago, and it was prime! The Ogden Overlook was stunning, and the descent down Sardine was a rip. It is now my favorite ride up Ogden Canyon.

    Wookie were you up on the Overlook Friday around 3:30-4:00?

    Wasn't me. I'll be riding the Wasatch Crest tomorrow though. Hope to beat the heat!
