    Park City - Anything rideable?

    Round Valley still very wet...

    Glen Wild?

    Promontory?

    The road is already getting old!

    getting closer...

    A friend of mine rode Glenwild yesterday and was not able to get to the top on the front side, still muddy when it goes into the trees and around the bend. She had to come back down. So, partly rideable at least. I rode up Bitner Road on my road bike Monday and saw plenty of water on the back portion of the trail.
    Not sure about the other spots you mentioned yet.
    I've been riding Shoreline in SLC this week and it's wonderful...not too far away.

    Backside of Jordanelle looks dried out and rideable.

    I hike a little with my dog this weekend...

    Jordanelle is goood!

    Started near Todd Hollow/Deer Crest entrance...
    Rode for 45 mins. Got 2/3's of the way around.
    It was great. Lots of loose rock & ups/downs.
    Probably best kept secret for spring riding in PC.
    Awesome!

    Backside of Jordanelle - good!

    Anything good up in Summit County yet? I'm thinking of Round Valley tomorrow morning if it's dry.

    Thanks!

    Dutch Hollow...

    for all you PCites, if you're looking for something a bit dfferent and a bit tighter/twistier than the round valley/glenwild stuff - you need to come down to Heber valley and check out Dutch Hollow over in Wasatch St park in midway - been riding there for the last few weeks totally dry!!

    definitely will keep you entertained for 1 1/2hrs before you resort to multiple laps. right off of River Rd on the way into Midway. Definitely more of the East coast tight twistiness and a bit more techy than whats currently rideable in PC

    Alta825,

    I'd like to check it out. Can you provide a more detailed description of how to get to the trailhead. Also, any maps of the trails?

    Thanks

    Dutch Hollow trailhead directions

    at the bottom of 40 take a right at the light towards Midway, this is River Road
    after a few miles you'll see a sign for Dutch Canyon or Hollow and Wasatch St Park - turn right and go to the end of the road (@1/2 mile or so) at the end go right down the dirt road this will take you to a parking lot. There is a map board and restroom there. There is a whole network of trails and they are relatively well signed.

    FYI - a few sections of trail are a little 'scratchy' - we'll be heading up sometime in the near future to do a bit of pruning - most eveything else is in great shape and few small sections got a bit chewed up from the horses when it was wet this spring and will smooth out w/ a bit of ride time

    definitely check out Barrel/aquaduct/1000 turns/Enchanted forest

    If you want to ride for 1 1/2+hours expect to make a lap or two

    enjoy
