    What is good to ride now?

    I live in SLC and am wanting to take advantage of the warm spell that we are having. What are some good XC rides within a couple of hours from the city that are in good riding condition?

    Thanks

    go do the quarry trail in little cottonwood canyon -- a little cool but clear and a quick ride up and down (i saw one other person on the trail this afternoon - an hour ago)

    also try out yellow fork canyon

    Anyone try Mueller Park? Maybe a night ride when it's all frozen?

    When it is or has been wet Stansbery Island is often in good shape. It is the best option during the spring runoff. It is mostly rock and gravel so it sheds moisture well. The trail guides route it as a loop using the roads to return to the parking area. Some of these roads are muddy after a rain or during the thaw and can make a mess of your bike so I usually ride it as an out and back.

    Agreed, do Stansbury as an out and back, I can't understand why the guides all recommend taking the road back. Wish that trail was extended to be a full loop.

    I just rode mueller this morning and it was all rideable up to the top. There were a few patches of snow that you have to ride through, but it's in really good shape.

    Is it possible to ride from Mueller to Ensign Peak along the ridge tops?

    This is a favorite question that seems to always come up...seems to me the answer I hear most often is: "yes, if you don't mind walking your bike through scrub oak and getting lost"

    AFAIK, there is no real solid biking route. But I would love to be wrong!

    I went up to quarry last week and it was kinda snowy and slow moving unless your tires have super traction it isnt the best trail since it is so high. Bonnevile shoreline I only did like half of a mile. doe it get any better after half of a mile?

    I'm willing to bet the shoreline is muck right now.
