    Uinta Mountains backcountry biking. Who has done this?

    Hey Guys,

    I couldn't help but watch this short clip of some pretty awesome trails in the non-wilderness area of the Uinta mountains on Pinkbike today. Has anyone ridden the route they took? I think it would be a pretty awesome summer/fall adventure!

    Any insights would be awesome as I would love to adventure this next year since I moved back to Utah and looking for some backcountry fun.

    I'd be down for this if I could talk the wife into it. We hiked Christmas Meadows in late summer and it was nice. Definitely gonna go through Evanston next time. Every time we have gone through Kamas there was traffic all the way up to Bald Mountain. The drive back to the Wasatch through Evanston was free of traffic.

    Thinking about getting into the Uintas as well on some adventure by bike. The list of open to mountain bike trails on the forest service website is vague at best. From reading Utahmountain biking the Bald Mountain trail is now closed to bikes and that's the one thing that the forest service does point out clearly on their otherwise useless trail descriptions. It still seems like the West side of the Mirror Lake Highway is non Wildnerness from all the maps I've looked at. Can anyone confirm if the Weber Canyon Trail 079 is open to mountain bikes? Any loops back there in the Weber River drainage that anyone would suggest for mtb. I'm okay with hike a bike and very tech terrain. Just want to explore the Uintas on two wheels. Thanks in advance and happy riding.

    Wife and I went up there last weekend looking for some adventure. Too many ATVs though. Plus it rained off and on which seems to be a daily occurrence in the Uintas. We ended up riding in Park City.
