    Upper beginner to mid trails in Davis & Weber

    Hi:

    Somewhat new to Mt. biking and need to find some good trails. I tried the fernwood that connects to the shorline, but it seems too steep for me.

    I have also tried the Green Pond and Last Chance trails at Snowbasin and they are fabulous. So, does anyone know of any other trails closer to davis Co, or some of the good ones in Weber Co that are good for a beninner. to intermediate.

    Mueller Park above Bountiful. The first mile is full of dog **** and slow hikers but after that it's really nice.

    I'll be riding North Canyon to Mueller tomorrow @ about 7:00 if you want to tag along (about 2000 feet of climbing).

    Won't be able to. I did and endo at Snowbasin, caught a long on the left and the front wheel turned and the outside of my right leg tagged the handlebar hard. It made it hard to petal back to the car. But I think i would be good to try Mueller Park.

    Do you normally go mornings or evenings?

    I ride whenever I can squeeze in some time. Check out the Ogden BST; it's a nice trail (can be crowded). Mueller was perfect this morning-even saw two moose by Rudy Flats.

    I'd suggest Wheeler Creek and/or the BST above the Layton/Kaysville. The BST is not too busy on Sunday mornings, if you don't already have other commitments...

    Today was the first day I have every been on the dirt. We started at Fernwood park and headed south to the WSA then came back. I had to walk a couple spots but it wasn't bad. I would try it again if I was you. I thought it was a hair out of my league but I had a great time.

    I can't agree more with that dog crap comment.

    Yea, the Ogden BST is always crowded. May not be in the middle of the day, but too hot then.

    Actually, I rode it last night at about 7:00 and I saw one bike and one hiker. Everywhere I have ridden lately has been packed. Mueller is worse than the Ogden BST, and wheeler/Snowbasin was packed over the weekend with bikes, horses, & horsesh!t.( IMO, the Layton BST is week.)
