Overview

A technically easy ride up Wheeler Canyon, past Art Nord TH and up East Fork through splendid meadows and ponds, down Middle Fork to Wheeler Creek, and back down Wheeler Canyon. Setting is below Snowbasin Ski Resort and is worth it to see a Beaver Pond where you just might see... some Beaver!

Need to Know

It's an easy long(ish) ride.

Description

The trail is easy to follow once you've unloaded and mounted bikes at the Wheeler Canyon TH towards the top of Ogden Canyon. Simply follow the road (no vehicles will be found but the trail is wide enough for a tractor/trailer) until you reach Art Nord TH and old Snowbasin road (paved). Cross the road and continue riding up until you come to a signed intersection that sends you back to Wheeler Creek.

There is the option to cut out the Wheeler Canyon section by parking and riding from the Art Nord trailhead.

I made most of the loop but cut down Icebox Canyon for an adrenaline-pumped ending to my ride. Watch out for hikers in Icebox.
