“A classic Park City singletrack journey; without all of the Ski Resort crowds.”— Tom Robson
Electric Mountain Bikes Not Allowed
Family Friendly Bring the kids - especially for Stealth Trail and Glenwild Loop. The views are great and the obstacles aren't too overwhelming.
If you're feeling bold and want to expand your riding repertoire to something a little more downhill oriented, drop-in on some of the Bob's Basin trails near the end of this route.
Need to Know
Glenwild Loop contours to the east then drops lazily through tight, loose, sagebrush-filled singletrack. Don't miss the semi-jumps here, you can grab some easy air if you're up for it - otherwise they're all rollable. After you've gotten your whoops on the downhill, cross Glenwild Drive and bear left to stay on Glenwild Loop. The trail rises slightly, then comes to an open intersection with Cobblestone Loop; did I mention how sun-exposed this ride is?
Turn right onto Cobblestone Loop; an easy, ascending grind to an intersection with Flying Dog - the meat of this ride. Cobblestone Loop is a lollipop, be sure to stay right at the first intersection you encounter.
Once you reach Flying Dog, enter it and immediately cross West Deer Hill Road. Flying Dog is by far the hardest part of this ride - get ready for tight, steep, and exposed switchbacks. If you're cognizant enough to count while ascending this trail, there are 16 exposed switchbacks. The top of the trail is at an intersection with "No Road Here" road, where there is a nice bench to sit and relax on. Once you've had your fill of relaxing, fly on down the other side through Aspens and Pines. Be on the lookout for Moose and other wildlife on this descent - many have been spotted in the marshy areas!
At the bottom of Flying Dog you'll intersect 24-7 - turn left. 24-7 flies through sun-exposed and almost always hot terrain, but using this trail is a necessity when navigating from Flying Dog. If you like riding through thick stands of sagebrush and some intermittent trees on tight singletrack, however, then 24-7 is the trail for you. Be sure to keep an eye out for uphill traffic, especially near the Bob's Basin trails (24-7's southern extent) - there are generally a lot of other users in this area.
Stay straight on Stealth Trail and follow its smooth, easy contours back to the parking lot!
