      Trails marked as 'Moto Primary' are considered two stars or less and not ideal for MTB

      Lake Mountains mountain biking, south of Eagle Mountain Center and west of Utah Lake, is the “wild wild west” of adventure mountain biking—away from the crowds and carpet trails; home to dirt-bikers, rattlesnakes, annoying bugs, and difficult approaches. The trails are moto trails—NOT mtb specific, so the trails can be STEEP, rough, loose, rocky, and dangerous; Terminal Velocity has a continual grade of 35-40% This is not an area for beginners or riders that prefer mtb specific trails.

      For mtb, the area is very challenging. It has some of the most gnarly downhills in the SLC area like The Punisher—in the running for the most savage trail in Utah, and Gravity Well which drops have been considered "upper fire swamp scary!" This is just the beginning, the area has a tons of possible lines waiting to be explored and established.

      More Mtb infrastructure is in the works to mitigate some of the current hard approaches. Trail building contributors are welcome! In the future, there will be climb-up trails for getting to the top of Overwatch , Gravity Well, and The Punisher. Currently, trails with better approaches like Jakarta are on the sunrise/lake side of the Lake Mountains.

      High clearance vehicles are recommended for getting to the closest parking areas to the trails. When riding the Overwatch area, Access Road 2 is the best road to use.

      There is a wire BLM cattle gate on Access Road 2 ; please close the gate when entering and leaving the area.

      When we are out there riding, let’s make the area better for everyone by moving any obvious dangerous rocks off the trail where it makes sense.
