|Powder Mountain Brim Trail
The Brim Trail is the first of a planned system of trails at Powder Mountain. The Brim singletrack is six miles long, with doubletrack connectors bringing our suggested ride (see below) to 10.1 miles. Altitude is 8600 feet. The riding season is late June through September. The ride starts at the upper lodge at the top of the Powder Mountain resort. There will be 900 vertical feet of climbing.
For 2015, ride this trail ONLY on weekends or weekdays after 5 pm due to construction in the area.

Retrace path to parking
10.1 Back at car
|Getting there: From I-15, take Exit 347 to
Ogden Canyon. Drive 7 miles up Highway 39 and turn left across the Pine View dam
onto Highway 158. Four miles later as you pass the gas station in Eden, keep straight at the stop sign.
Drive steep uphill 7 more miles to Powder Mountain. Pass the lower lifts
on your left as you follow a turn in the road. Now take the next road on
your right, Powder Ridge Road. (If you reach the main parking lot on the
ridgeline, you missed the turn.) Drive 1.2 miles on Powder Ridge Road,
then fork left uphill to the upper lodge parking.
NOTE 2015: The area just south of the lodge parking is under development. The area is currently closed to cars, but you may soon be able to drive directly to the singletrack trail. For now, follow the instructions above as you ride along the construction zone. Watch for the green round sign on a post to your right, 1.7 miles from the lodge.
