    dry trails near SLC??

    I NEED to ride my mountain bike tomorrow. It's been a few days since the snow, so I ask what's rideable near SLC? I'm willing to drive about an hour. Who's been out and where'd you go?

    I rode the Quarry Trail at the bottom of LCC today and there are some wet spots but it's sand, so no mud. Had a blast. The north end of Corner Canyon is all good, Eagle Mountain is good, and Glenwild trails in Park City are good.

    Really, glenwild is good? Didnt they just get a foot of snow earlier this week? I assume the snow is gone, but wouldn't it still be pretty muddy?

    Actually most of the snow just hit the front side. The Wasatch Back got significantly less, and being that Glenwild is lower and mostly exposed, it dries out quickly. Here's a good resource for PC trail conditions: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...Lq0/edit#gid=0

    That's awesome, thanks! I didn't even think to check that page because I assumed PC was a no go. Guesd I know what I'm doing tomorrow.

    I noticed it has Flying Dog as tread lightly. have you been up there?

    i haven't but am planning on riding Glenwild tomorrow. We'll see if my wife has the leg strength for a loop long enough to include Flying Dog. I'm guessing not...

    I rode the Preserve Connector today (Saturday). That entire frontside loop it good. I imagine the backside (north facing) part of Flying Dog is still a bit wet. The Preserve Connector still allows you to get nearly the vert and mileage. Give FD a few more days. A bit of patience will pay off in a couple weeks when it's not rutted out.

    Just prior to the storm, Flying Dog was all good, with some slightly damps spots. It should dry out quickly.

    What about Corner Canyon ... any reports? I just can't believe its dry in the north facing stuff....that was a wet storm. Saw tons of people out in the area yesterday....and a number of pretty muddy looking bikes ( shuttlers on maple hollow DH )....

    no one's posted on the UMB cc thread either ... guess everyone's out riding.

    Looks like the CC conditions page was updated since yesterday. It said all closed last I looked, now its all either open or use caution.

    I don't see any way to contact them, but posting a "trail conditions" report without a date of posting is pretty worthless. The reader has no idea how old it is.

    If you're looking for something a little different, Coyote Canyon is an excellent option - Coyote Canyon Trail : PC MTB Ride of the Week
