    Antelope Island late winter/early spring 2017

    Looks like things will be warming up going into the weekend and Saturday should be over 50 degrees in the valleys. Thinking to head up to Antelope Island for the first time to get my mtb fix. I know this is a go to for off season riding. Do the locals up that way think the trails will be good to go on Saturday? Thanks in advance for your input.

    Maybe call the rangers station on the Island and they could give an update on conditions. 801-773-2941 open till 6 p.m. daily.

    I rode it last week. All was fine EXCEPT the out/back to Elephant Head. This section is North facing, very slow to dry, and most importantly the clay and grass will clog your bike and you'll be carrying your bike for sure.

    The Northern most section (Lakeside Trail) was also very wet, but was at least in ridable condition.

    The rest was great, no problems.

    I rode the white rock loop yesterday morning and it was dry and great. Saw a lot of runners and maybe 6 or ten mtb bikers so everybody had the same idea I guess.

    Antelope Island has been good to go for the past few weeks, if you like riding there. If you are looking for the same conditions but a better trail network Eagle Mountain is the place to ride.
