    ... and if we just ... Any Long Rides in SLC/Provo?

    Getting pushed out of the mountains and want to keep riding. Are there any long rides near Salt lake or Provo? 25-50 miles? Can anyone point me towards some info?
    Thanks

    Thanks, looking through that site, I can't see anything long and I'm not familiar enough with the area to know if rides can be linked. It would be cool if you could link the Bonneville Shoreline trails from SLC to Provo. Can you?

    You could probably piece together a really long ride if you hit all of shoreline, dry creek, bobsled, city creek, hogle, etc... (in whatever order you wanted), and then ride up emigration canyon. long road climb but you could hook into the little mountain trails or drop down to mormon trail up to big mtn pass and then loop a bunch of the trails up there.

    Don't think you can link SLC to Provo shorelines, nope.

    edit to add: I've also heard it's possible to link shoreline north from SLC over to Mueller Park in Bountiful...but I've heard it's rough going and I couldn't point the way for ya.

    You can also link a bunch of trails in the Corner Canyon area together to make for a nice long ride....shoreline, (upper...steep) jacob's ladder, clark's, ghost falls, hog hollow (to Alpine), south mountain, glider park area.

    try Glenwild/Preserve Connector/Flying Dog at Kimball Junction- a great 20 mile loop. Or try going up the Mormon Pioneer trail from Little Dell, down the other side, (road) out to Jeremy Ranch, and from there can climb back up to the Alexander Creek trail, OR hit the trails on the Park City side
