Fango is open for riding...
Fango links lower Hog Hollow to lower Mercer Hollow. It's a nice ride all by itself. It gives you a great loop when combined with Achtung Baby downhill and Mercer Hollow uphill, with Mercer Mountain finishing hte loop.   Trail page...  October 2019. 

First segment of 9K trail open in Park City
Nice trail contouring the mountain at 9000 feet elevation from Empire Pass. Short ride for beginners, or part of a mean loop ride for experts. Includes a video.   Trail page...  September 2019. 

Pahvant Trails at Richfield.  First ride!
Fabulous trail system on the hillside west of Richfield! This first day's riding is on the lower trails including Kiln-It and Cairn-age. Includes a fun video to show you what it's like.   Trail page for lower Pahvant...    Page for upper Pahvant...   September 2019. 

New extension of singletrack at Bunker Creek!!!
Four new miles of trail are open at the bottom of the Bunker Creek ride. This brings the singletrack total to around 12 miles, with just a mile or so of dirt road to reach Panguitch Lake. The new bottom bit also makes a nice loop or out-and-back ride   Trail page...  September 2019. 

The 13th Hole
Yeah, there's a golf course nearby. This fun little loop is on the northeast corner of Cedar City. Makes a good "got no time to ride" trail.   Trail page...  July 2019. 

Turnpike Trail at Cedar City
They're still putting finishing touches on the middle mile of this 4.4-mile out-and-back trail, but it's open for riding. Nice cruising with plenty of mountain and very little work on your part.   Trail page...  July 2019.  

Ogden Foothill Trails -- a closer look
I've expanded the information available about the trails below the Ogden BST. The new trail page includes Mt Ogden, Par Course, Foothill Bike Trail, Blue Ribbon, Ogden Bobsled, and more.    Trail page...  July 2019.

Upper Achtung Baby
Lots of riders scratching their heads as they run across the new trail entry and exit points. We have the info. Achtung Baby is now 2 miles, starting at the underpass on Canyon Pointe, with a connector to Porcupine, and crossing Two Hollows before descending to lower Hog Hollow.    Trail page...   July 2019.

New trails at Valley Vista are open
If you try to find "Cowley's Cure" without some beta, you'll NEVER get there. Even with Trailforks on your phone, it can be tough to figure out. Why not read our trail description on the updated Valley Vista page? You'll be all set.  Trail page...  July 2019.

New Draper trailheads at South Maple Hollow and Coyote Hollow!
Just thought you'd want to know. There are deluxe trailheads under construction at South Maple Hollow (bottom of Vertigo/Levitate) and Coyote Hollow (bottom of Clark's). The one at South Maple Hollow is just getting its finishing touches now. Bathrooms and water!   July 2019.

Rio Oso trail system!
Making a run for "real beer" and hard-core fireworks? Take your bike! UtahMountainBiking is giving honorary "home boy" status to Evanston's trail system.  Trail page...  July 2019.

365 at North Fork Park...
Fun beginner-level twisting and rolling singletrack for a lovely 2-1/2 mile loop. Connects through to Mule Shoe via a brand new connector at the top of the Pipeline trail.  365 trail page...  June 2019.

Rush Limelight and Rush Green (Beginner)...
For us old Corner Canyon riders, it just got a lot more confusing this year. Most of Creekview is gone, and what remains is one-way uphill. There are two beginner sections at the bottom of Rush, and there's the new Rush Limelight. Read up, and you'll be ready to hit lower Corner Canyon with a low WTF factor.   Lower Corner Canyon trail page...   Rush trail page...  June 2019.

The Above Abyss trail at Slickrock...
This is an official trail, but you won't find it without a bit of help. 2.3 miles of fairly plush riding -- by Slickrock standards -- and a few nice views. Map and GPS, of course, plus a detailed description of how to find it. And a video to decide if it's worth looking for.    Trail page...     May 2019.

Report on the new Herriman segment of the Bonneville Shoreline...
Eventually, this will reach Rose Canyon. For now, it's an extra 1.5 miles (each way) as an out-and-back from the Diamondback trail near Blackridge Pond. Here's the dope.  Trail page...     May 2019.

Hurricane Loop update...
After spending 3 hours each on Gould's Rim and Hurricane Rim shooting video -- on a weekend -- and seeing NOT ONE RIDER, I got to wondering...   Do people even know about this classic loop ride any more? Here are updated pages with new videos for Gould's Rim, JEM, and Hurricane Rim, the pieces of the classic Hurricane Loop.   April 2019.

Iron Giant trail in Cedar!  Very nice.
This two-mile flow trail is designed for beginners and intermediates, but experts won't be disappointed. It's reached via a climb up Lichen It (or a descent down Green Hollow). There's a connector at the midpoint for a shorter kid ride.  Trail page...    April 2019.

Eagle Mountain Update...
A fourth page of trail information about Eagle Mountain, this one focusing on the trails on the western slope of Lake Mountain. Here's info on Cropduster, Gunslinger, and Rock-a-Billy.   Trail page...    April 2019.

Here's the info on the East Mountain Wilderness Park trails...
4 miles of very nice singletrack in the trees of the EMWP. Dry and ready to ride.   Trail page...    April 2019.

"The Bruce Blues Band"
Those insane mountain biking songs on the UMB facebook page?   I've put links to each video on the Goodies "Video" page of this website. Or go to the YouTube channel and select the Bruce Blues Band playlist. And if you want the songs themselves, they're available as mp3s in our Goodies "Biker Blues" section (there are newer songs there that haven't been put into a video).    

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...
