Provo Bench - Trail, Provo, Utah

Provo Bench - Trail, Provo, Utah

DESCRIPTION

The trail is pretty fun for all those who want a quick ride at any time. You could leave your house and be back in 45mins if you wanted to. The trail can end at Y mountain trail head (which is around 3 miles of dirt road). Or you can keep going, but be sure to start at the upper parking lot or else you will head back into provo on pavement. If you continue, you will be on dirt road for a mile and get on to single track till you get to rock canyon park. This trail was rated intermediate because it has some tough climbs that will put you on your lowest gear, yet at the same time you are still on fire road. If you stop pedaling you will have to walk. On the down hill you can get into the higher gears. Some gradual roller coaster effects. Not technical is another reason it is not higher. If it rains you will get muddy.

Mostly Boring DT with just enough ST to keep me coming back. Great early spring trail. Rideable (Y Mountain to Springville) when other trails are too wet. Hot temps in summer.

Customer Service

I like to park at the paved parking at the top of 300 s.(bottom of Slate Canyon. If you explore you may find about ? miles of singletrack(intermittent) heading South to Springville. Stay left at single track intersection 2 miles South of Slate Canyon. there is one 100 ft push-a-bike but then 2 miles of gentle up down ST. I like to make a loop by returning on BST. Also you can now by-pass two of the brutal dirt road climbs between Rock Canyon and Y trailhead parking.

I actually ride up in this area a lot. If you stay on the road, there isn't a whole lot to it. But there are tons of singletrack spurs that make it a lot of fun. You can ride from north of Rock Canyon all the way to Hobble Creek without touching pavement. The further south you go, the more difficult sections there are.

Customer Service

Play around--there are lots of good rides around here.

I used to ride this trail every day on my lunch breaks, just to get some excercise. It's nothing to get excited about, and it doesn't take very many rides before you'll barely break a sweat. It's a combination of wide singletrack and jeep road. Honestly, the best part of the ride is coming down the road behind the temple at 50+ MPH (but don't let the police see you doing this!). Toward the South end of the trail, near the mental hospital, you can take a jeep trail down that has some pretty good little jumps.

Customer Service

You can either go North to South or South to North. Doesn't really matter either way.
