Take a sandwich.

You are turning 50, go ride 50 Miles. Route starts at the bottom of Freemason Trail (park somewhere nearby - WPT perhaps). Trail ends at Kimball Jct, oddly close to Red Rock Brewing so you can grab a burger and pitcher of beer.

Note: The only place the course crosses itself is after you've ridden down Spincycle and you are coming back up, you've got to get on Deer Crest (climbing toward Mid Mtn Ext - you are headed to Silver Lake Lodge).

I've ridden this at least annually since 1994. Veteran advice: there is no shame in walking - most riders do. The reward is significant. Use that "granny gear" big enough to serve a turkey dinner, and you'll at least get a good run into it. Some riders will grind it straight to the top.

Definitely gets your blood going and reminds me of climbing the Germania Pass road in Alta: steep as *$#@.

Note - when you get to the top of BLT - you come out on a double track with a gate on your left. The trails goes through that gate and on down and follows the road to the right. Don't go up the fire road (unless you want to see the lookout tower.

Puke hill is an abomination. So many new trails going in to the Park City area, and there is no option for rerouting off this crap climb to one of the best sections of Singletrack in the entire country? Pinecone ridge from Park City is one of the best climbs around, but not all climbers are coming from Park City, probably more from SLC, leaving Puke Hill a wart on the ass of an otherwise otherworldly ride.

Puke Hill is, for me, an aspiration! I admire the folks who take this in one shot and it is a way for me to measure progression toward ideal fitness.

The climb is part of the charm of the route and adds to the appeal. If one can proudly proclaim that they've conquered the climb, they have earned joyful passage to the remaining ride.

Rides nice either direction. Is a grind up but fun down. Parallels a Canyons gravity only trail

Fun old school tight Singletrack. Too steep to climb.

Worth noting that the gate to the UOP closes usually around 8pm! You can park outside the gate and pedal in, but if you're doing an afterwork pedal - don't get locked in!

Trail Red Coat
I went down Red Coat yesterday, 1 Sep 2016. It's in good shape and it's not overgrown as stated in the intro. When you get to Insurgent you see it gets much more use and the track is all over the place wide. Riders have created some alternate lines but there are no real ride-arounds, except at the bottom at a man-made/rock feature. Insurgent is steep, rocky, root infested and right now has deep moon dust to make it even more challenging. Insurgent is short and doesn't have many man-made features but it does have some gnarly natural features. The sign at the entrance states it's for expert riders only. It's right.

Fun Trail. Gentle ups and downs; overall level. Some tighter spots, so a good challenge for newer intermediates in places.
