    Ogden/Eden from Central Texas. ONE morning to ride

    Coming from central Texas to a wedding in Ogden while staying in Eden. We're taking off next Friday to come back to Texas. My wife and I would like to wake up ass crack of dawn and get a quick solid ride in before we leave UT. By quick I mean 2hrs. What would you do if you were us? Thank you!

    Right now they only place to really ride around Ogden within your time frame is the Bonneville shoreline trail. The higher elevation trails are buried under this amazing winter we have had here.

    You can't go wrong either way. I have not rode South of 12st this year as the trail heading south from rainbow gardens holds snow a little longer as it faces North. (You can bypass it by driving up either 22nd or 21st st and starting there) I rode the BST heading north on Sat and it was clear. You can get close to 13 miles in if you ride North from 12st to the start of the coldwater canyon climb and back. As of today coldwater canyon still has snow in the canyon. Here is another link that may help. http://www.utahmountainbiking.com/trails/BST-NOgden.htm

    Thanks for the info man! Typically how long does that out and back to Coldwater take? We're intermediate to advanced riders.

    It will take around an 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 hours if you keep moving, if you take it a little slower/take some breaks or hit 9th st bike park (https://m.facebook.com/ogdenbikepark) it will take a little longer.

    Antelope Island has been really good the last few days and about the best riding close to Ogden. Most of BST is clear north and south of 12th street but still wet in some places.

    So an update:

    We made it to Utah. Rode the Klonzo trails in Moab. Rode the Bonneville Shoreline trail and that was a spot on suggestion. You would have laughed your ass off watching a Texan fall off the trail rolling down the mountain. But man the climbing was brutal but the descending was heaven. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Glad you had a good time. Hopefully it wasn't too busy, there's been a lot of people out with the spring weather finally arriving.
