    Logan or Park City?

    Making are way to up to Stanley, ID from Boulder. Stopping to camp and ride in Utah. What do you recommend Logan or Park City for a good MTB ride?

    Is this a trick question? Park City without a doubt (not that there's not good riding in Logan).

    Logan is a bit more out of the way if your going through Ogden/Burley/Sun Valley to get to Stanley. If your looking for another quick option off of the interstate consider Snowbasin.

    Well, of course if you have the time. Make a big loop from the Park City side with mid-mountain trail. A big day for sure but not anything harder than what awaits in Stanley

    Edit to add after Fisher Creek or Potato Mountain. Those are relatively easy rides.

    If you're looking for 30+ mile rides and lot's of climbing, go to PC. If comfortable camping for a couple days is a priority, go towards Logan.

    Park City has hundreds of miles of excellent trails, but no camping real close by. You could camp in the Uintas (~30 miles East). Another idea would be to camp on hwy 40 up near Strawberry reservoir on the way to PC from Roosevelt, UT.

    Most of the Logan area rides are up Logan Canyon, and some take off right from camping areas. I really like the Jardin Junipero trail, which has a campground at the TH.
