    3-4 hours I can pretty much handle any kind of crosscountry trail, don't really want just a downhill course.

    Can you make it up to Park City? You could ride a bunch of variations of the glen wild trails for a handful of hours. I'd check out flying dog (check it out on http://www.utahmountainbiking.com)...that is if it's open. It's been closed lately. The other parts of glen wild are apparently open so you could connect a bunch for 3-4 hours of cross country stuff.

    In Salt Lake, you could do the shoreline at hogle zoo to city creek and that'd be relatively long.

    The main problems is lots of the long high altitude trails still have snow all in them. So I'm racking my brain trying to think of something that you could ride for 4 hours this year.

    An SLC Shoreline/Ensign out-and-back would get you 4 hours.
    I only attempt to change the world in the appropriate World-Changing venues and forums.

    If you wish to add the climb up to Ensign Peak, the trailhead is just across the entrance to City Creek from the City Creek parking lot. It heads up the canyon for about 1/2 mile, turns left and starts climbing. Just keep going until you are daunted.

    The Bonneville Shoreline Trail is a really good trail, and lower altitude if you're a flatlander, but you ought to head up to Glenwild and do that to the flying dog...it was open a few days ago, with only a small amount of mud. It is about 20 miles with about 2000 feet of climbing and some great downhill cruising, especially taken clockwise. The base is about 6500 feet...around 2000 feet higher than the BST. It also has 3 fun easy downhills that drop off the main trail with nicely banked turns, some small wooden ramps, that sort of thing.
