Great views of Salt Lake City, combined with winding singletrack make for an excellent climb.

Description

While this is only a small portion of the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, it provides access to one of the best flow trails in the Salt Lake area. Parking is available near Popperton Park, and is shown on Bobsled via Bonneville Shoreline Trail.

Entering into the trail, you'll start on fairly wide singletrack weaving your way through a ravine between the ridges that surround SLC. The pitch is fairly consistent, occasionally steepening as you climb up onto the ridge.

Once above Salt Lake City, the trail narrows and provides great views of the city, as well as flowers lining the trail in the spring. The trail levels out, and provides great XC riding for those who want to push themselves physically.

After reaching the turnoff for Bobsled, you can continue to ride along the side of the ridge, eventually connecting up with Bonneville Shoreline Trail - Ensign Peak, or take the descent through one of Salt Lakes best downhill trails.
