    Antelope island
    I'm pretty new here and have only been to Antelope island once on my motorcycle, so I don't know much about the make up of the trails there. With the rain, snow then snow melt we had friday, would the trails be muddy sunday? I literally haven't ridden since I think Halloween and I am dieing here. Even if it's a fire road, I need to ride.
    I just went for a run up to Shoreline at the North Ogden Nature preserve trail head (closest trail head from my house) and it is still pretty muddy there. I need a roady for days like this.

    If you park at the Bridger bay trail head and take the single track you'll have at least a couple miles of some what techy, sandy single track. It's a little muddy to start but soon turns sandy and rocky. The dirt roads at the end of the single track I think are sandy also so you might be able to get a lot of miles in a lolly pop loop. The single track is out and back. Give the buffalo lots of room.

    Bison are fast.

    The riding out there is pretty lackluster, but I know what you mean about needing to get some trail time in. Mostly super sandy fire roads with tons of horse damage.

    As for road bikes, yes, now is pretty much the time we ride ours, too. We put a lot of mile s in during the spring so that we can be fit when the trails clear. It is worth it, though it does get a bit trying when you get caught in the snow.

    Antelope island pretty much sucked except for the out and back to Elephant head.
    But it was good to get a few miles outdoors instead of pedaling in front of the tv.
    As for the buffalo, I'm used to South Dakota buffalo. They are much faster :D

    Did you hit the single track at the end fo Bridger bay camp ground? Was there any mud anywhere? Centenial trail and M Hill are much more ineresting rides.
