Photo: Viewpoint loop, Eric's Trail in Herriman's most recent news stories...

St. George Bike Park.  Not officially open, but you can ride
Here's info on the three finished riding areas in this 60-acre bike park. Lots of good stuff.   St.G Bike Park trail page...    October 2018.

Eric's Trail links Blackridge to Juniper Crest
I've updated the Herriman trail pages with new maps, trail descriptions, and photos. There's a new video of the Mustang Loop ride on the Blackridge page, and a quick POV run down Eric's east side on my YouTube channel. Great riding.   Eric's / Blackridge trail page...    October 2018.

WoW trail videos
Wasatch Over Wasatch in its fall colors! Separate videos of the climb and the descent are embedded on the WoW trail page. And for fun, the Bruce Blues Band provides the soundtrack for this video of the downhill!   Trail page...    September 2018.

Updated Rush and Canyon Hollow pages
OK, this was just an excuse to make my 200th trail video with the song "Half the Man She Is" as background music. It's on my YouTube channel HERE.  There's nothing new to report about these trails. I just added a  few new photos and embedded more-conventional videos of Canyon Hollow and Rush on the trail pages.   Rush trail page...   Canyon Hollow trail page...   September 2018.

The Oakley Trail Park is open!
Oakley offers a small but very fun system of trails, including downhill-only trails for beginner, intermediate, or expert. Connects to higher-mountain trails for those who want something wilder. Includes a video of a quick loop ride.   Trail page...   September 2018.

Expanded Navajo Peak section  of Virgin River Rim!
This is the most popular segment of the VRRT. I've added a page about the loop ride over Navajo Peak and around Navajo Lake, with information on the connecting trails to the campgrounds. Now includes a video.  Trail page...   September 2018.

Snow Gauging trail
Bet you've never heard of this one. It's a great ride in American Fork Canyon. Previously published as an option on the Horse Flat ride, it now has its own trail page. Includes an embedded video.   Trail page...   August 2018.

Willow Hollow trail rebuild is a winner!
I recently realized I hadn't published anything about the new alignment of the upper Willow Hollow trail in American Fork Canyon. Well, it converted this formerly trenched and rough grunt climb into a smooth pleasant climb. There's a video embedded on the trail page.   Trail page...   August 2018.

Tibble Fork diversion trail is open
We lost the bottom of Tibble Fork, but now a diversion trail is open. At about 1/2 mile above the dam, it sends you over to the Mill Canyon trail. Yes it's good to have Tibble open, but I'm not fond of the diversion. The traverse has some grunt granny-gear climbing, and it dumps you on the top of that despicable 20% downslope on Mill Canyon.    Trail page...   August 2018.

Pine Hollow trail page
For the last 20 years, I've had bits of Pine Hollow information scattered among 4 different trail pages that describe rides in American Fork Canyon! I finally decided to bring it all together, add some new photos, and create a dedicated page for the Pine Hollow trail.   Trail page...   August 2018.

Deer Creek South Fork - a revisit
This loop is one of Utah's must-rides. An absolute classic.  I've updated the DCSF page with new photos and made a new trail video!   Trail page...   August 2018.

Beautiful White Pine Lake
This part of the classic Bunchgrass ride can be done as an out-and-back. The climb out of White Pine is occasionally steep and techy. Page includes a video!   Trail page...   August 2018.

Update (and video) for Salamander Flat trail 150
A classic ride from the Timpooneke trailhead up to Ridge 157 and down through Salamander Flat. Gotta love that grunt up through Pine Hollow!   Trail page...   August 2018.

A Classic Ride -- Jardine Juniper
I've updated the Jardine Juniper page with a few new photos and a video that really shows you what the trail is like.   Trail page...   August 2018.

Updates to East Fork, Middle Fork, Green Pond, and Wheeler Creek
Time to freshen up the Snowbasin-area pages. Sick of looking at crappy old disposable-camera, low-res scanned pictures from 1998. So here's an update with new ride tracks, new photos, more info, and a new printable topo map.   Wheeler Creek / Icebox  page...    Green Pond Loop page...   East Fork / Middle Fork trail page...   August 2018.

Right Fork of Bunker Creek is open
After the fire burned about 30% of the Bunker Creek downhill route, a flood washed much of the trail away. The Right Fork has been excavated and is open for riding now. Still worth doing. Check out the video.   Trail page...  July 2018.

Red Canyon Rim
So much beauty it will make you puke! Went back to this nice trail and made a video so you can decide if it's something you want to do while you're at Flaming Gorge or if you'll make a special trip just to do it.   Trail page...  July 2018.

Updated Sardine Peak page with video
Can't believe it's been 8 years. But I'm back on Sardine Peak with new photos and a video of the loop!   Trail page...  July 2018.

Ogden Canyon Overlook
This is a great out-and-back for beginning and early-intermediate riders. The reward is an awesome view. But you've got to invest a bit of leg, because it's 900 vertical feet up!   Trail page...  July 2018.

Stump Hollow
Updated the trail page and added a video that really shows you what the trail is like.    Trail page...  July 2018.

Update to Four Bay
I ran into a few new trails while making a video of Four Bay in Payson Canyon. There's a little loop off JMC called Ezra, a rather techy narrow twister called K-Launi that bypasses a bit of JMC, and a connector from Little Shawn to Overlook. So I've added them to my topo map.    Trail page...  July 2018.

New Pulp Friction trail
There's a new 1.5-mile downhill-only trail on the west side of Round Valley. It's a very well-built flow trail, not techy but fun and swooping. Got a video if you're interested.   See Round Valley trail page...  July 2018.

Beaver Mountain
There's 5 miles of trail in two loops at the Beaver Mountain ski area at the top of Logan Canyon.  See what it's like with the embedded video.  Trail page...  July 2018.

Tooele? Seriously, Tooele?
Expecting sage brush and juniper, I arrived at Settlement Canyon, a mile from downtown Tooele. Immediately I was riding through tall maples, fir, and aspen. Try it.   Trail page for the Dark Trail...    and for the Left Hand Fork trails...    July 2018.

Blackridge Trails
An update to the trail system at Blackridge Pond in Herriman. Worth riding whether you're a newb or a hardcore. The new Blackridge trail is now at mile 4.1, and you're welcome to ride up to the viewpoint and back.    Trail page...     July 2018.

Maple Canyon
Nice trail, but unless you live in southern Utah County you probably won't be interested. The lower trail is fabulous but it's short, and the upper trail is one mean mama of a climb. But here's the info. You decide!    Trail page...     July 2018.

Big Pole Canyon
Nice system of trails located just east of Heber. Easy riding, some nice views. And of course, I've got a video for you.   Trail page...     July 2018.

New stuff at High Star
Back to High Star Ranch to test the new beginner and expert trails. And now, the trails actually have names! Nice helpful trail signs, including occasional maps on signposts, and a nice variety of fun riding.   Trail page...     July 2018.

Squaw Peak singletrack climbing route
New narrow singletrack trails wind back and forth as they climb through the cool forest behind Squaw Peak. Narrow and twisty with a remote wild feel. But you won't find them without some help. Ride from the bottom of the Squaw Peak road all the way to Buffalo Peak on singletrack!   Trail page...     June 2018.

Update to the Squaw Peak DH page!
Lots more information and new photos of the DH options from Buffalo Peak down to the BST. Includes the Overlook Trail as a DH option.   Trail page...     June 2018.

New downhill flow trail on the south side of Traverse Mountain, starting on Eagle Crest just west of Levitate and Vertigo. Still a bit chunky, with riders dropping into the "beginner line" on the bottom rather than rolling the berms. Needs moisture and riders who will hit the berms high.   Trail page...     June 2018.

Achtung Baby!
Already bloodied myself on this lovely new flow trail. There's just too much tempting fun stuff built into it. See my trail page for a video of a loop ride via Hog Hollow.   Trail page...     June 2018.

Check out the Richfield Race Loop
Used to be, the area between Payson and Parowan was a mountain bike desert. Nothing there. Now there's new singletrack going in everywhere. Here's what the newest race loop in Utah looks like.   Trail page...     June 2018.

New trail at Desert Canyons
Nice easy 2.9-mile loop along the Southern Parkway south of St. George airport. But attention, it uses a different trailhead from Pushing Tin. I enjoyed a very nice ride on Pushing Tin looking for the connection before I got back in my car and went looking for the correct trailhead.   Trail page...     May, 2018.

Making sense of Black Hill
Black Hill offers great riding in a wildlife management area  just outside Ephraim. There are over a dozen trails interconnected with doubletrack. Navigation can be complex. Watch the lovely video, then check out the ride suggestions. You might find my map useful to print and take with you.   Black Hill trail page...     May, 2018.

Video of M.O.A.B.
The "Brand Trails" of the Bar M riding area, all in a single video of the loop ride. See the Circle O or Rockin A pages. Also, new pics of Bar M on that trail page.   Bar M trail page...   Circle O trail page...   Rockin A trail page...     May, 2018.

New video for the Alpine to Three Falls trail. 
Want to see if it's worth riding? Go to the trail page and watch the video. And while you're there, READ about how to navigate when the trail seems to end on the fire road. And now to connect to Lambert Park.   Trail page...     May, 2018.

EKG trail. One of my faves.
Every year I try to hit EKG in the Klondike area. Love that trail. This trip, I saw only one other rider in 4 hours of shooting video on EKG. Obviously, more people need to see how awesome this trail is. So I've refreshed the web page and added a video tour.   Trail page...     May, 2018.

Lambert Park. Redux!
Since I first published the Lambert Park trails review in 1998, there have been a lot of changes. I've updated the page periodically, but because these trails are right next door to me, I didn't pay much attention. I've made three new videos (there are how 7 Lambert Park vids on my YouTube page) and split the trail description into 4 pages.   General Lambert trail page...   North Lambert trails...    West Lambert trails...    South Lambert trails...     May, 2018.

Zoltar and Houdini video tour
The Klonzo riding area has a lot of easy intermediate-tech miles. If you're hungry for a little sandstone riding, try this loop of Borderline, Zoltar, Houdini, and Hogdog.    Video on south Klonzo trail page...     May, 2018.

Redford Run trail
This is a popular neighborhood trail that feeds into Lambert Park. Rode it years ago, but only mentioned it casually on the old Lambert Park web page.   Trail page...    May, 2018.

Lexie & Ethan trail
The new Lexie & Ethan trail passes across the top of Red Rock to connect Red Potato to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail near the Mike Weir Drive crossing. I've added it to the Potato Hill trail page.   Trail page...    May, 2018.

Mercer Mountain and Two Hollows
The Mercer Mountain trail is a nice addition to Draper's trail system on the south side of Traverse Mountain. And theTwo Hollow (pipeline corridor) trail is now open for riders, connecting Mercer to Hog Hollow.   Trail page...    May, 2018.

Wild Horse (Goblin Valley) trails switch to one-way
The Wild Horse trails have packed down nicely so they're fast and rolling. Four of the five loops are now one-way. This does two things: it changes two formerly soft climbs to downhills, and it avoids hassles with passing oncoming riders on areas where narrow trail hugs steep soft side-slope. New video shows the way to ride it!   Trail page...    May, 2018.

Three Falls to Alpine and Lambert Park!
The road crossing in Three Falls is now ready for riders, and you're cleared for takeoff! So here's the info on connecting Alpine's Fort Canyon or Alpine Cove (road connection to Lambert Park) to Draper via the Three Falls trail.   Trail page...    May, 2018.

Back to Alaska
New photos and a nicely long video of Alaska, Nome, and Mega Steps as a loop ride.   Trail page...    May, 2018.

Update to Eagle Mountain
I've added the Backspacer, Given to Fly and Wile E Coyote trails to the Treadstone trail page and the Eagle Mountain printable map.   Trail page...    April, 2018.

Dead Horse Point - west side lariat-loop video
Dodging the crowds at this state park to make it look like I'm all alone on the trail system -- this video is a bit longer than most of my trail introductions, covering four trails in a lariat loop to the rim of Shafer Canyon.   Trail page...    April, 2018.

New pics and video for Bull Run and Getaway
You may know Bull Run only as the entry to Mag 7, but there's a loop ride you should try, highly recommended by the Moab folks. Drop down Bull Run then climb back on Getaway for a fun loop. Check out the new videos for these trails.   Bull Run trail page...    Getaway trail page...    April, 2018.

Mustang Loop revisited
Some fresh photos and a new trail video will show you what this part of the Horsethief trail system is like.   Trail page...    April, 2018.

Rim Rock page update
Rim Rock has long been my favorite among the Santa Clara preserve trails. I've updated the page, plus there's a new and improved video.   Trail page...    April, 2018.

Navajo Rocks "preferred direction"
Because this trail system has become so popular, it's now recommended that riders go clockwise. This cuts down on the amount of passing required. Also, I've got a new video of the east loop.   Trail page...    April, 2018.

Get a great
Rocky Mountain
bike from the
UMB store!

Another look at Pipe Dream
You won't find big crowds on Pipe Dream in Moab. It's not Moab-y enough for either the tourists or the hard-core. And it's a bit techy for casual riders. But I've made a trail video so you know what's there.   Trail page...    April, 2018.

Mountain Biker Blues
So, did you miss the fabulous performance of the Bruce Blues Band in concert on April 1st? Here's the link to the YouTube video.   Play video on YouTube...    April, 2018.

New photos and video of June's Bottom
A bit of an adventure ride, June's Bottom is 30 dirt-road miles away from Green River. You'll need to crank some occasionally sandy brush-lined butt-ugly trail to get to the slickrock. But once you do, oh boy.   Trail page...    March, 2018.

New Athena Trail in Green River
This trail is a lot of fun. It's new and a bit raw, but you need to do it. Because it's right off the freeway exit, you can hit it on your way to Moab.   Trail page...    March, 2018.

Tempi'po'op (rock writing) trail
I've updated the trail system locally known as the Anasazi Trail for new trail names! New photos and a trail video of the gnarly eastern side of Tempi'po'op.   Trail page...    March, 2018.

Pushing Tin Loop
Short but satisfying ride on the Arizona border, just south of the St. George airport. Worth checking out while you're in the area!   Trail page...    March, 2018.

The Twist & Shout DH (an alternate line at Quail)
The trail elves have finished connecting a 0.4 mile alternate one-way line off the main Twist & Shout trail (also known as south Lakeside or Quail Connector). You'll find the info on our trail page.   Trail page...    March, 2018.

How are those videos made?
I (Bruce) get a lot of questions about what cameras I use and how I handle all that equipment out on the trail. Rather than type the same thing into the YouTube comments again and again, I've created this page so I can just copy the URL.   Video creation page...    February, 2018.
