It was Once fun, but now it is being torn apart by housing developments. If you can navigate through all the residential areas near the bottom of south mountain, you should be all set.

Customer Service

just stay on the road.

The dirt road is easy riding but it is uphill with few level places to coast. The road changes according to the weather and time of year. Late fall and early spring it can be muddy and thanks to the four wheelers have a few ruts to contend with. The summer time it is dusty and very sandy in places and an occasional rattle
snake to keep you company.Once on top there are many options to explore.

Customer Service

Park at beginning of the uphill road and ride past the
gate or drive your vehicle up the road and stop when you want and ride from there.

Start at Canyon Bikes shop and ride down the hill to stop sign, go left and ride till you almost hit the face of the mountain, you will all of the sudden pop up in a gorgeous home sub-division, take a right at the first intersection with all the big homes, from there just ride up the hill, keep going for hours and hours, you can ride as high as the rock line and take some fairly technical single track all the way down!! From the saddle of the mountain you can see Draper and American fork and Alpine, for those of you who know, they are on opposite sides of the point of the mountain. You can even ride into alpine, not recommended for any beginner, its a long ride home.

Similar Products Used: The corner canyon, also known as Jacobs Ladder, with the help of the Bonneville trail, is a good trainer/get your butt whipped into shape trail. There are many options in the corner canyon area, off to the right of the fire road is some good single track that is soon being eatin up by the new sub developments going up, bastards! This canyon offers a lot of levels of riding for whatever level of rider that you are. Hopefully it will remain, it is all being taken in by the development in the area. Go up and explore have a good long day ride up there, and visit canyon Bicycles while you visit. That is my recommendation for a good place to begin the ride ;) Thanks to Raven Abaroa for showing me the area and the great rides!!!!

Great for spring training when you need a realatively easy grind to burn the legs a little. Unfortunately this whole mountain is being developed and all the fun trails on the bonneville bench are being destroyed.

Customer Service

Just follow the road.

Similar Products Used: There is some trails being maintained in the housing development if you dont mind city riding.

Its a fun ride!!!

Customer Service

If you start form the Alpine side of the mountain you go up to Hog Hollow road and follow it west until it turns into dirt road. This is where the trail starts and you follow the road up through the trees and bushes. you can turn off the trail in several places. to explore but I usually stay on the main road. once you get on top of the mountain there is a big hill to the east you can ride over and find some really fun downhills on the other side of it.

Similar Products Used: Its a lot of fun to go up and spend a few hours exploring side trails but I do know that on the Draper side they have big signs saying that you cant go on some of them.

The Corner Canyon trail makes for great race training. It is divided into segments that are good for interval training. I use it frequently because it is so close to my home. It's not terribly demanding if you ride at a slow pace. If you lay into it, it will kick your ass. There aren't any technical sections unless you leave the road and go looking for singletrack.

Customer Service

Straight up the Corner Canyon access road. When you reach the open field at the top of the accent (where the land is shredded by 4x4's), turn East and climb to the next section of fire access road. Follow this road until it begins to fork. If you keep taking north forks, you will end up at the top of Jacob's Ladder. This begins one fast luge style descent that will blow your mind. You get dumped out on the Corner Canyon Access road. From here look around the valley. There are tons of other trails including plenty of singletrack and the South Mountain MTB race course.

Great single track that has millions of options. Not very technical though, but you can be a speed demon on the way down. Great for training and going faster than whats good for you. I took my freind on it though (he had a costco bike), he crashed once or twice and bent both rims.(don't take a cheap piecer on this).

Customer Service

Go up by the equestrain center by on south mountain, and find your way up the trails. (There is a race track)

THIS RIDE HAS A LITTLE OF EVERYTHING. LEG BURNING CLIMBS, TECHNICAL SECTIONS, FAST, INSPIRING DOWNHILLS AND INCREDIBLE VIEWS FROM THE TOP OF LONE ROCK. TRY TO NOT DO IT IN THE HEAT THE FIRE ROAD TO THE TOP PROVIDES NO COVER. BE SURE YOU HAVE SPARE TUBES THE CONNECTOR HAS A FEW SECTIONS OF ROOTS NOBBIES AND ROCKS, OH MY. THIS RIDE IS USUALLY DONE BY EXPERIENCED TO INTERMEDIATE RIDERS. THE CONNECTOR ALONE WILL BE ALL THE RIDING THE NOVICE WOULD WANT, AND MAYBE MORE. KEEP YOUR EYES OUT FOR DEER. I SEE SOME EVERYTIME I RIDE.

Customer Service

BY FAR THE BEST STARTING POINT IS THE SOUTH SHORELINE CONNECTOR AT WASATCH BOULEVARD AND ABOUT 120000 SOUTH. PARK AT THE PARK AND HEAD SOUTH. FOLLOW THE BLACKTOP LOOP WHERE YOU WILL SEE A SIGN THAT SAYS, BONNEVILLE SHORELINE TRAIL", HEADING SOUTH YOU WILL ENCOUNTER A FEW SMALL CONNECTORS. 200 YARDS INTO THE RIDE YOU WILL HAVE TO CROSS A SMALL CREEK AND A LARGE ROCK BOULDER THAT WILL REQUIRE YOU TO WALK. THERE IS ONE SHORT BUT STEEP CLIMB ON THE SHORELINE TRAIL THAT HAS A COUPLE OF TIGHT SWITCHBACKS. AFTER THAT YOU SHOULD BE CRUISIN. ONCE YOU HIT THE FIRE ROAD TAKE IT TO THE TOP(EAST). THERE ARE SEVERAL SINGLE TRACKS DOWN, BUT REMEMBER, YOU WILL HAVE TO GET BACK UP TO THE SHORELINE CONNECTOR. DOWNHILL BIKES NEED NOT APPLY.
