    biking some of the 7 peaks in Utah Valley

    curious if any of you have biked to the top of some of the 7 peaks in Utah valley:
    nebo, timpanogos, lone, provo, cascade, santaquin, and spanish fork?

    i know a guy who did spanish fork and said it was pretty good backcountry. basically push up, ride down, real steep.

    interested to hear other's stories.

    Nebo, Timp and Lone peak summits are all in wilderness areas. I've got to ask why you want to go hiking while carrying your bike? Doesn't sound like a good time.

    thanks for which ones are in wilderness. some of the best rides i've done are HAB up to peaks and then down. the type of uphill really doesn't matter to me, ride or push as long as it gets to a good descent. just did the highest peak in colorado; a good one, 4900 feet up in 6 miles or so, pure push.

    Subscribing: I'd be interested in what you find out about this. Most of the tall peaks in my area are in Wilderness or the National Park so are a no-go. But I see vids of this type of HAB riding from Europe and it intrigues me. Hike to a tall summit. See if you can ride down.

    colorado is great for it, and the terrain is awesome, some of the best rides around.
    granted, not everyone is up for pushing their bike for 4 hours uphill
