This trail offers a lot of southern exposure and great views looking south towards Park City.

Scott Cullins

Description

Park in the parking area, of the small park off Glenwild drive, and take the Stealth Trail heading east, about 1.2 miles until you hit Glenwild Loop.

Heading east to start, the trail is relatively smooth and fast, and eventually passes through the rolling terrain of the Glenwild residential resort community. The trail is well-marked, so stay on the trail and respect the residents. After you pass the Cobblestone Loop junction, the trail begins the climb, back up the north face of the hill, then drops down the more technical and rocky south face.

In general, this area offers great early season rides, as it has plenty of southern exposure, few trees, and dries quickly after rain and in between early/late season snow.

Came to Park City for a snowboarding trip but due to less than stellar conditions, I decided to ride my bike today. I went out thinking it was going to be a road ride on my spare bike, a Nine Air9 hard tail. Luckily, I saw a sign for the Spring Creek Trailhead and then noticed riders up on the hill. Hallalejah, my road ride turned into a nice little MTB ride. This loop isn't super long or very challenging but it was a fun diversion. Most of the other trails linking off Glenwild were too wet to ride, other than Stealth and Blackhawk(?). Anyway, a great little trail with great access to bring riders not ready for the sketchier rides in town. Mar 22, 2015


The western and southwestern portions have great views of PC and the Wasatch Mountains. The trail does have have fast sections but overuse has led to many more rocky sections. I have ridden on trails in over nine states I would certainly rate this intermediate based on tight turns and the level of rocks. Oct 27, 2016
