High Point

The top of Bobsled is a challenging piece of trail.

The classic Bobsled loop. Park at Popperton, ride up Dry Creek to the Shoreline Trail (great views of Salt Lake), and drop down Bobsled to 11th Ave, and back to Popperton. Takes about an hour (give or take). A great loop for a quick after-work ride right in the city. Be warned: the climb up Dry Creek might wind you on a full DH bike, but this loop is a dream on a trail bike. Everything is easy-intermediate EXCEPT Bobsled, which is a solid "black diamond" trail (especially the top section). Intermediate/XC riders might prefer to keep going to City Creek.
