East Fork Loop  (Wheeler Creek, Middle Fork, East Fork Trails)
The East Fork Loop is a fast ride on broad, well-groomed singletrack. The loop is 5.8 miles in length, with 800 vertical feet of climbing, to a peak altitude of 6200. The surface is easy-intermediate technical. Riders who want more of a workout can start from the Wheeler trailhead near Pineview dam, for a 9.3 mile 1300-vertical ride that's still pretty easy overall. The loop can be ridden either direction. Most riders seem to go clockwise, taking the East Fork trail up to Middle Fork, then heading downhill to end on Wheeler Creek. The ride alternates forest of maple and aspen (and an occasional fir) with grassy meadows.

Getting there:  From Ogden, head up the canyon on U-39. For the Wheeler trailhead, turn R on doubletrack just before Pineview dam (Trailhead GPS N 41 15.168' W 111 50.511'). For Art Nord (recommended, bathrooms), keep straight (R) at the dam, then 2.7 miles later, turn R on U-226. Go another 3.6 miles and turn R into the Art Nord trailhead parking N 41 14.017' W 111 49.224'.

From the south, leave I-15 for US-89 in Farmington. Turn right (east) to take I-84 up Weber Canyon. Take the Huntsville/Pineview exit and turn left under the freeway, then right to continue up the canyon. About a mile later, follow the signs to turn left towards Huntsville on U-167. 6.8 miles after leaving I-84, turn left on U-226 towards Snowbasin. The Green Pond trailhead is at a parking turnout 1.3 miles from the turn. The Middle Fork trailhead is 4.7, and Art Nord is 6.0.
