Thunder Mountain Trail is best known for its amazing scenery reminiscent of its neighbor Bryce Canyon. If you have ever wanted to ride terrain like Bryce Canyon and Cedar Breaks, this is the place. Red rock and smooth singletrack mixed in with some loose technical sections. Bring your camera!

Huge tree fell over in the middle of the trail. Melting snow keeps trail muddy.

 One of the best trails I've ridden. Incredible views, uniqueness and flows really well. Enough uphill to keep you honest and keep it from being shuttled like crazy via the highway.

 October 18, 2016-Thunder Mtn is very dry. A fair amount of small baby heads on some of the tougher switchbacks.
