    Ride Recommendation for Park City (Kimball Junction) Tomorrow May 17th

    Greetings,

    Arriving today and looking to do a 3 hour-ish ride tomorrow. We are staying about 10 minutes north of Park City, closer to Kimball Junction. Solid intermediate to advanced riders from near sea level. Ride suggestions?

    Yup, go do Flying Dog (the biggest possible loop via Glenwild). If you are ahead of schedule stop at Bob's basin and do a couple quick flow trail laps (IMO Ant Farm is the best trail there but they're all pretty good) as well.

    And yes, do Flying Dog counterclockwise.

    +1 Flying Dog (and +1 counterclock)...and whilte you're here the Trailforks app is absolutely money for Utah trails.

    If you want to warm up with something at lower elevation head down to the valley and hit Corner Canyon in Draper. You can easily put together whatever length of riding your legs can take. There are 5 DH only trails: Levitate, Rush, Vertigo, Jacobs Ladder and Maple Hollow DH (in order by my preference, YMMV). Pick the ones you want to hit and then connect them with other trails using Trailforks. Be sure to check on conditions for tomorrow as most of those were closed yesterday due to mud, but with today's perfect weather I'm guessing should be good to go by tomorrow.

    We've been getting some pretty decent rain storms regularly over the last few weeks, so we've been in a ride-wait pattern every few days. With some rain forecasted for Friday/Saturday, if you get skunked on trail conditions in PC, look up Eagle Mountain. It's about a 75 minute drive from PC, but is pretty impervious to rain so it offers some quality riding while everything else is drying out.

    Thanks for the recommendation! We did a big counter-clockwise loop via Glenwild. The total elevation change listed on UtahMountainBiking intimidated us a bit, but the climbing grade was pretty reasonable.
