morgan valley to skyline search and 140 mile evening ride

This evening I did a pretty sweet ride. I started up emigration canyon and dropped over big mountain around east canyon reservoir and into the Morgan valley. I searched for connections to skyline along the SE edge of valley and pretty much only found gates. So, I think the only way to make a dirt loop from skyline is to go through east canyon resort which you have to be a member of to get a key to the trail system.

After sanning the SE edge of valley I jumped on I84 through Henefer and then took a dirt road through jeremy ranch and over parleys.

It was a great 140 mile 4.5hr fiigure-eight for a thurs. evening ride.

Hello Fellas I am visiting this fine area for a couple months and would love to tag along on any rides going on this weekend. I mainly like 90% dirt type riding. Let me know if theres an open spot. Thanks

sunday ride: uintas loop

I've been craving more dirt, but nothing too technical yet. So, I found what looks like a big bike friendly loop. On SR35 past woodland where SR35 crosses the provo river dirt road 133 starts to the south which leads to little south fork ATV trail. Little south fork then turns into camp hollow which ends right next to a huge chunk of BLM land east of heber. From here there are many dirt roads to choose from; one could make a great loop out of this.

Here's a a link that shows little south fork trail.
http://maps.google.com/maps?q=woodla...,0.055189&z=14

So easy to find trail head due to the provo river. Doesn't look to steep and there are many options once we get into the woods. Little south fork trail intersects with so many other trails we can adjust accordingly as in if giant dual sport eating mud put blocks our main trail which is the trail to the right than we take the trail to left. Just go with the wind.


What do you think about this for Sunday?




Also, we can start early than 10am if we need to.

Here's my cell (sorry, have to write it so the web crawlers don't grab it):

I'm pretty stoked about this uintas loop I've been researching for the last hour or so. Looks real nice

My bro and I may be doing something on sunday. Thinking about the north slope of the uintahs road from bear river service east to henrys fork or farther or maybe coalville/chalk creek thru wyoming to mirror lake hwy. I will be on the 1200gs and my bro on his 950 adventure.

Depends on what you guys are doing... maybe we will tag along.

I was on the road to Henry's fork last week, not on a bike, but to hike Kings Peak. All I remember is a long, boring straight road with lots of washboards.

How about we all meet at 9:30 or so at the Einstein's at 3900S and Wasatch Blvd as usual and discuss the actual route?

If we take the Hardware ranch route, we can go all the way to Evanston on dirt (I think), from there those that need to be back can slab, those that can stay longer can explore the uintas.

I'm up for anything, as long as we do as much dirt riding as possible.

I'll look at the routes tomorrow, right now I have higher priorities for the short term future....

You are thinking of the road in from the north going from mountainview south. I am talking about a road that goes from mirror lake hwy east along the north slope of the uintahs and continues east past henry's fork.
