    Moving to Mountain Green, what kind of mountain biking is there?

    I am considering a move to Mountain Green and am wondering what kind of trails are there. I've seen that there are trails around Snowbasin and near Powder Mountain. I currently live in Draper and have ridden Corner Canyon regularly for a few years. How do the trails in the Mountain Green and Ogden area compare? How are they to ride? Are there any downhill trails? Are there any good downhill specific trails that are easy to shuttle? Is there any riding in Morgan County? Any help you could give or any links would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I love the trails at Snowbasin. I live in Farmington so I'm close enough that I'm there at least once a week. The trails are more XC than downhill but you can ride the gondola at Snowbasin. I've heard Powder Mountain was building trails but I haven't been there. Nordic Valley has some trails as well. Skyline is a great ride, lots of climbing though.

    utahmountainbiking.com has good trail descriptions under the Ogden area.

    I get very bored of CC after a few rides, there just isn't a lot of character to the trails IMO.

    But last year I started riding the Snowbasin area (I live in Cottonwood Heights), and it is definitely worth the drive! Living up there would be great for riding!

    The Ogden crew really know how to make good MTB trails!!! There is also an active group that maintains them; I ran into one of their fearless leaders on the trail last Summer, and he gave me a card.

    Riding up there is outstanding. There is a really good trail map too, I got one at City Cycle (Ogden), when I was there buying a bike for my 9yo. That is a really good bike shop.

    Good luck.

    Mountain Green, huh? Not much to ride. Better just stay in Draper

    I live in Draper and love being able to ride to CC from my front door for a quick weekday ride, but the few times I have made the drive up to the Snowbasin/Pineview area I have loved it. Mountain Green probably isn't as convenient to Snowbasin as you are currently to CC, but as UtahJohn said, the quality of the trails is high (for Utah) up there.

    If you haven't already, check out trailforks for the trails in that area.

    We've got a bike park in Ogden about 20 minutes from mountain green. It has everything from green flow trails to expert double black diamond runs. Check out our Facebook page for details and updates on the park.
