    Beginner/Intermediate trails in Utah Valley?

    Hello everybody!
    We (my wife and I) are moving to the Provo area soon, from Houston Texas. I consider myself an intermediate level rider, and my wife is a beginner. Seeing that we come from the flatlands, we would like to find some trails that could be considered beginner/ intermediate level, with easy to moderate climbing to get us used to the altitute. I like to climb, but I want to take my wife along in my rides. We have a couple of full suspension bikes and a couple of singlespeeds (she prefers the singlespeed, but likes the plushness of the full suspension). Last time we were visiting, we went to Park City and rode their beginner trails. Lots of fun! The climbing was tough, but the downhill made it all worth it.
    Anyway, we're open to suggestions and feel free to add any pictures! We'll see you at the trails!

    shoreline along the mountain is always a good solid xc ride. apparently there's a trail that goes like 18 miles from strawberry reservoir to wherever shoreline ends.

    there's a few pretty intensive xc trails up in the sundance area. i tried one once...and got worked.

    i mostly do dh, and around here there's squaw peak, bennie creek(also works well for xc riders), rock canyon(also can do xc on it) and sundance is always fun. of course all of them can be done going up, but be careful for dh'ers because all those trails are frequented by some pretty fast riders

    Thanks for the replies, guys. I went to Sundance once on a rented bike. I had a blast! Took my wife to Moab in one of our dates when we were dating, rented bikes and rode the Klondike Bluffs. She did good, and I was hooked. We should be getting there at the end of february. I'm looking forward to meeting all the local riders, and maybe get my wife a little more involved. She's pretty good, but she's a new rider, so when we ride together, we go slow. When I ride by myself or other riders, I'm usually a bit more daring. Feel free to contact me for rides and other news.-Danny
