    Marla! Totally phatty but she puts out sweet!

    Oh wait, I thought it said Chunkiest tail in Utah?

    I'm certain something on So. Utah will win out. How about a chunkiest trail in So. Utah vs. chunkiest trail in the Wasatch and then e-bicker about which one is more gnar?

    I do believe the land management agencies of the Wasatch Front have outlawed chunk and are in the process of systematically eraticating it from all trails in the region. I'd check out that other mountain range to the west for some solid chunk.

    Shingle Creek in the Unitas is about as Rocky as it gets. I suppose you can call that chunky. Here's a quote from utahmountainbiking.com. "The Shingle Creek trail is the original Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde. Sections of smooth dreamy hard-packed cruising alternate with nightmare sections of rocky rough climbs. And recent "improvements" have made the trail harder for mountain bikes. But the scenery is the best you can find anywhere in the Uinta Mountains. So it's worth doing."

    However, as rough as the review says the trail is, they only ride the lower 2.5 miles and actually miss the upper 4+ miles that are considerably more rocky than the lower section. They recommend and out and back, but we usually ride it as a loop. Going 9 miles up Upper Setting road to a single track to a small lake then to the true top of Shingle Creek. From their I believe it is about 7 miles down.
    Can't keep track anymore - Giant, Santa Cruz, Pivot, Yeti, Norco, Salsa, Intense - if it rolls on dirt I like it :thumbsup:

    id say for So.Utah the Portal Trail is nice and chunky in a good kind of way, and for the Wasatch the White Pine trail is good and chunky

    Good to know I'm not the only one who suffers up that road. So worth it once you hit the singletrack though!

    Sad thing is, probably the 'chunkiest' trail in the Park City area, that I can recall, is lower Sweeney's that follows under the Park City lift. I guess you could add middle Sweeney's and John's especially now that the PCPP was run down it and blew out all the moondust and left all 4000 roots more exposed.

    Pathetic, I know. But still.

    However, if this was early Spring you could include parts of Killian's after the horse traffic gets done with all the mud. Not exactly rock, but might as well be.
