Weekends get crowded, and coming down requires a lot of stops

If you are going to tackle Park City and you are starting from the north end, this is a must do loop. The climb (or descent) on the west part of Flying Dog offers shady trees and fun bridge across a beaver damp and you make your way up to the top. It is also a ripping descent with fast transitions. The east side of the loop is more exposed to the sun, but gives the rider a rolling hills and open wetland meadows as you make your way around the Glenwild area.

All the trails are intermediate with many areas you could consider beginner, and makes a good ride to take relatively new riders out for a nice ride. I often see whole families riding the loop, though climbing up Flying Dog on either side requires good to great fitness, and is steep in spots.

So darn rocky. skip It unless you like rocks.
Switch back...rocky short bit... Switch back...repeat. cant geta nice flow going.

The fact that this is the most popular of the three "Freeride trails" in Bob's Basin tells you everything you need to know about the crappy direction mountain biking is going. Super overrated trail.

This is a fun trail! It’s very rocky, and you seem to really underestimate the rocks, they definitely give it some added difficulty. But the view is amazing with the rolling green hills, and it’s a good starter trail. I’m an intermediate rider, and I felt like it was a really great start.

If you haven’t ridden this in a few years, go do it. The trail has clearly had a lot of work and is in epic condition. It’s hard not to get high and go fast around the berms. It’s got perfect flow from one feature to the next, but each major feature still has a B line option to go around. Hats off to MTF, this is my new favorite trail.

Trails in this area are taken care of by Basin Rec, not MTF. That's why they're generally in better shape.

^they did build road to arcylon, has some pretty big wood jumps. The new dropout is definitely an upgrade though, good size doubles riddled throughout

With 91% riding this CCW why does the map show it as being ridden in a CW direction?
I have ridden it 67 times in the CCW direction. You could say it's one of my favorites.

What a great trail. The people riding it against the grain, not so much. This trail is the only place someone has snarled at me while I am standing over my bike yielding right of way as they climb past me.

really hard to beat for the area. One of the best. I always see a ton of wild life too. Just be a bit careful with your speed when you do not have a good line of sight. There are a lot of people that run or bike up it too. I usually make is a loop but to each their own
