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.
